Clemontine Monk Walker

January 28, 1927 — December 21, 2021

Clemontine Walker was born January 28, 1927 in Canton, Mississippi to U.Z. and Ida (Smith) Holden. She was the eldest of two children. Clemontine received her education from Lincoln County School Systems in Lincoln, Mississippi. She confessed a hope in Christ at an early age. In Albuquerque, she was a member of New Hope Full Gospel Baptist Church.


She was united in holy matrimony to William Walker, who preceded her in death. To this union, no children were born. Mr. Walker freely and whole heartedly accepted Clemontine’s seven children. They made a home in Albuquerque, NM. Clemontine was a proud wife and Mother. This union lasted over 11 years until his death in 1987. To help support the family, Clemontine worked for General Electric until her retirement in 1987.  She departed this life on December 21, 2021. Clemontine’s parents along with her husband and brother (Paul) preceded her in death.


Clemontine was revered as the Matriarch of her family and her legacy will live through them. Cherishing her memories are four of her seven children: Marylyn Whitley-Kingyon, Sandra Monk, Kenneth Monk, and Marsha Monk. Her other children, Patricia Beckwith, Billie Jean White, and Harvey Monk preceded her in death. Also cherishing her memory are her 8 grandchildren Kimberly Davison, Tracey Davison (who preceded her in death), Kesha Whitley, Christopher Wilson, Letitia Salazar Monk, Kedrick Brown, Kylah Whitley, and Nathan Monk; 15 great-grandchildren, Takesha, Shaquita, Jazz, Jessy, Tyre’, Nakia, Tamar, Micaiah, Kayja, Saniya, Salome, Josiah, Malik, Layla, and Kai; 9 great-great-grandchildren, Rashawn, Javelle, Samaria, Malachi, Zaion, Genesis, Ariah, Kash, and Nia, and one great-great-great granddaughter, Aleahmya. She also had a special bond with Chana, Mimi, Johlil, Aaliyah, and Lavontrae.


Clemontine Walker became a member of the Mahalia Jackson Temple #1259 on December 8th, 1974. She served as Deputy District Daughter Ruler for many years and the title “Emeritus” was added upon her retirement. In addition, Clemontine was a “Sister” of the Order of the Eastern Stars (Mt. Everest Chapter #3) since 1979.
