Alice Ann Formyduval


Ms. Alice Ann Formyduval, age 77, died on Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2020, surrounded by loved ones at the family home located at Finney’s Wharf on Onancock Creek.

Alice was born July 29, 1943, in Lawton, Okla., to Louise Dickie Formyduval and Morrison Formyduval, Jr. The family lived in Whiteville, N.C., and relocated to Onancock in 1945.  She had an idyllic childhood, growing up in her beloved hometown, marred only by a bout with polio at age 10, during the 1952 polio epidemic.

After graduating from Onancock High School in 1961, and the NAM Hospital School of Practical Nursing in 1963, she was married for 30 years to the late John Robert “Bobby” Walker, former owner and operator of T&W Block Company. Surviving are two daughters, Anne Wendell “Wendy” Walker and Genevieve Macon Walker, both of Onancock; sister, Marguerite F. Furr and her husband, Max; nephew, Macon F. Furr; and four grandchildren, John Major Morgan and Ann Marley Morgan, and Charlotte Louise Graham and Jonathan Walker Graham. She is also survived by her cherished companion, Walter Jewell Stinson, with whom she enjoyed life and traveling around the world over the last three decades. Alice and Walt had many good times and dear friends in Easton, Md., and Naples, Fla., and on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Alice was a life-long learner who kept busy with crafts and hobbies, including volunteer work, reading, sewing, knitting, boating, and exercise.

Per Alice’s request, a private interment will be held at the Fairview Lawn Cemetery in Onancock.
