Beth was born on August 24, 1961 in Omaha, Nebraska the daughter of Raymond “Gene” Eugene and Elizabeth Willine (Colvin) Campbell. The family transitioned through Sedalia, Missouri eventually finding their way to Overland Park, where Beth spent her school years, graduating from Shawnee Mission West high school. An avid reader and a member of the drill team, Beth’s love for life connected her with many people in and out of the Kansas City region.
Beth loved her husband Charlton from a young age. Charlton and Beth met at an Assemblies of God campground, Wheatstate Camp, in Augusta, Kansas, when Charlton was 13 and Beth was 15 years old. Their love for each other was immediate, and in spite of their age and the fact that they lived in two different cities, their relationship grew and developed. On August 16, 1982, she married Charlton Geoffrey Lewis Walker in Shawnee, KS in a small, private ceremony. For the past 33 years, Beth was many things, of which “mother” was her primary calling. Additionally, she fulfilled roles and jobs ranging from cheer instructor, to executive administrative secretary, to meter reader for Interstate Power Company. In between those opportunities, she found time to write poetry and songs, sing, attend school events, and work in ministry alongside her husband…and she loved Word Search puzzles.
Beth’s priority was family and friends, but above all she loved spending time with Charlton, especially while pursuing mutual interests. At the top of her list was listening to and writing music, singing and songwriting, and caring for their grandest’s, Pey, Shea, Liam and Camden.
She leaves her devoted husband, Charlton, at home in Eudora, KS.
