Mary Rush (Lynch) Walker

October 21, 1933February 18, 2021

Mary Rush Walker née Lynch (October 21,1933-February 18, 2021) beloved wife of John Wallace Walker for 66 years, loving mother of Gregg Walker (Kim) of Louisville, KY and Philip Walker (Kathryn) of Nashville, TN. She was “Grammy” to Karly and Kade Walker of Louisville and Katie Rush Walker of Nashville.

While attending University of Kentucky Rush met her “forever love” John. Rush enjoyed being a member of the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority and made life long friendships with her sorority sisters. As a young mother, Rush was busy being PTA president among many other activities including Booster Club, Lyndon Recreational and Den Mother. She was a lifelong member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. In 1972, Rush became a Realtor and 4 years later she became a Real Estate Broker. She was a partner in Walker-Toma Realty. Later, upon joining Paul Semonin, Rush quickly became one of the Top Producers and maintained that status for over 10 years. Rush ended her Real Estate career with a successful business of her own: Rush Walker Realtor. For 32 years Rush was an enthusiastic and successful Real Estate professional. Louisville was always John and Rush’s first home but their second home on Manasota Key, Florida was a favorite place for walking on the beach, enjoying beautiful sunsets, fishing with John and playing Bridge with their wonderful neighbors and friends at Tamarind. Rush would like to thank the Louisville Bridge Club, her Alpha Gamma Delta sisters and her caring Cobblestone neighbors for all their love, meals, cards, phone calls and loving support over the years.

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Rush. As part of our extended family, she was more than our daughter's mother-in-law. She was our good friend and wonderful member of the "grammy/nana" group. We will miss her the most Christmas morning, when we would watch Katie Rush open her gifts while drinking our coffee. Rest in peace, dear friend.

My condolences to John, Gregg and Phil and family, may Rush rest in peace and very sorry for your loss. Rush was like a "best friend" to everyone she met, even when Gregg and I got into trouble as kids, not a cross word, will be missed by everyone.

So many memories. I first knew her through Alpha Gamma Delta alums and she quickly became a friend. Funny, caring, an avid realtor, she always smiled... my sympathies to John and to her sons...
