Toye Mozelle (Walker) Yoder

Toye Mozelle (Walker) Yoder passed from this life into the loving arms of Jesus on Friday, August 5, 2022. 

A memorial service will be at First Baptist Church in Chickasha, OK on Friday, August 19, 2022, at 10 am.

Toye was born on April 15, 1935, in Fletcher, OK to Gaines and Pearl Walker. As the sixth of nine children with a twin sister, Toye had an abundant family life. She wrote letters to Jimmy Yoder while he was serving in the US Navy then married the love of her life in 1955.  They enjoyed 66 years of married life together.  She worked as a telephone operator as a teen, then as a bank teller in Oklahoma City for many years.  When the  new Westinghouse Manufacturing plant opened in Norman, OK she became one of the first workers and eventually became a supervisor. Toye loved the Lord Jesus and as a teen invited him into her life and began her love of His Word.  She taught Sunday school and sang in many church choirs throughout her life.  Toye loved her grandchildren and would take them to the lake and have them over for sleepovers often and fed them a lot! 

Toye was preceded in death by her parents Gaines and Pearl Walker, sisters and their husbands,  Mary and James Wint, Dorothy and Bill Eichor, Delores and Don Herrin, and Joy and Bill Livingston and her brothers Gaines Walker and his wife Ruth,  Roy Walker, and brother-in-law Neal Brown.

She is survived by her husband Jimmy Yoder, sister Anna Brown, brother John Walker and wife Venita, son James Yoder and wife Gina, and daughter Jan Harrison and husband David. Her grandchildren are Maegan Womble, Jeremiah and Joshua Yoder, Hannah Keepers and husband Kris,  Emily Roberts and husband Nathanael,  Autumn Stark and husband Tyler, Tabitha Harrison, Lacy Thompson and Mark Baxter. Her great grandchildren are Isaac and David Keepers. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Toye would want everyone to know she loved the Lord and had asked Him into her life.  She would want to invite everyone to do the same and find the abundant life she found in Christ Jesus.

Toye saw cut flowers as dead flowers but she loved feeding people and animals.  So, instead of flowers, a donation to the Oklahoma Baptist Home for Children, the Oklahoma Food Bank, or Helping Paws in Blanchard, OK would honor her.

Cremation arrangements are with McRay Funeral Home.

The family will have a memorial service at 2:00 pm on Saturday August 13, 2022 at the Southern Oaks Church of Christ in Chickasha. All who knew and loved her are invited.

Vicki was a member of the 16th and Florida Church of Christ where she met the love of her life and future husband Phillip Bauman. She was currently a member of the Southern Oaks Church of Christ. Vicki had many loves including her family, friends and of course her many beloved pets throughout the years. Her favorite past times were shopping/thrifting, making jewelry, and collecting things she loved.
