Hilma May Walker

Hilma May Walker (Hee Spencer), born July 30th, 1933, in Malvern, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica.  Joseph Spencer and her mother Florence Smith both deceased.  She attended school in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica.  She got married in 1969 to Herelio Antonio Walker, she welcomed openly and two stepdaughters, Joy Findley and Sharon Morris, who loved her endlessly.  She was formally employed in Jamaica as a domestic worker, thereafter she migrated to Fort Lauderdale in 1966 and later moved to Poughkeepsie, New York and later resided in Mount Vernon, New York.  In 1989 Ms. Hilma and her husband made their final move to Orlando, Florida.  She worked as a house keeping staff at Peabody Hotel until she retired.

Ms. Hilma was very caring, loving, with a sassy sense of humor.  She was the life of the party and loved by all.  Ms. Hilma loved the Lord and worshipped at Grace Bible Church here in Orlando, where she was a member of the Women's Group and very active in her Church and the community.

Ms. Hilma maintained good health up until 2017 when her health started to decline.  Ms. Hilma got progressively worse, and for the past three years was cared for by her loving husband Herelio at home.  Ms. Hilma unfortunately passed away on Tuesday, July 27th, 2021 at 8:06 am at home surrounded by her family and caregiver.

Ms. Hilma leaves behind her husband Herelio, stepdaughter Joy (New York) and Sharon (Canada), sisters Joan and Gwendolyn (Jamaica), brother Roynell (Jamaica) and a host of nieces, nephews, grandchildren and other relatives and friends.

The family would like for all to remember her vibrant laughter, her peculiar jokes and friendly nature, always welcoming everyone with open arms.

Public visitation will be held from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm on Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021 at Dobbs Funeral Home.  A second visitation will be held at 10:00 am, followed by the funeral service at 11:00 am on Wednesday, August 4th, 2021 at Grace Bible Church, located at 801 Dorscher Rd, Orlando FL 32818 with Pastor Gene Pritchard officiating.  Entombment will follow the funeral service at Woodlawn Memorial Park Cemetery.  

Due to the increase in cases of the COVID 19 virus the family has decided not to engage in a repast after the burial.
