Mary Jo Walker
Mary Jo Porter Fineout Walker passed away at home on Saturday, August 19, 2017.
Mary Jo was born in Ft. Scott, Kansas on March 11, 1939. She spent her younger years in Osawatomie, Kansas, moving to Eureka, Kansas following her freshman year in high school. She moved to Clinton in 1967. Mary Jo was a very devoted mother to her children Devin Fineout, John Fineout and step-son Drake Walker. She never missed any sporting event that either was involved in (including most of John’s high school football practices!) Mary Jo was everybody’s ‘mom’ - her home was always open to all her kids friends.
She married David Walker in 1980 and was stepmother to Drake Walker, of the home and Rob Walker.
She was a member of numerous bridge clubs and Beta Sigma Phi social sorority, and Meadowlake Country Club. She loved everything about Christmas with family and would start her calls in the summer to get her Christmas list prepared. She was a great sports fan loving everything KC Chiefs, KU Basketball and PGA Golf.
Mary Jo didn’t know a stranger and loved to talk, shop, and ‘go out’ for a meal. She is survived by her husband David, daughter Devin Fineout, (East Greenwich, RI), son John Fineout, (Overland Park, KS), step-sons Drake (Stacy) Walker, (Kansas City, MO), and Rob (Stacy) Walker, (Des Moines, IA) and most importantly, her loved grandchildren: Taylen Jean Fineout, Jillian Baccari, Trenton Baccari, Hailey Walker, Zach Walker, Emily Walker and Anthony David Walker; sister, Margaret Jean (Walt) Shook, (Wichita, KS).
