LaVonne M. Walker-Webb

[ Age 40 ] State comptroller's office auditor

August 02, 2007

LaVonne M. Walker-Webb, a retired auditor who enjoyed cooking and baking for family and friends, died Saturday of porphyria, a rare blood disorder, at Sinai Hospital. The Irvington resident was 40.

LaVonne Walker was born in Baltimore and raised in Lochearn. She was a 1984 graduate of Milford Mill High School and earned a bachelor's degree in business management from Coppin State College in 1990.

Mrs. Walker-Webb retired in 2002 from the state comptroller's office because of failing health. Beginning in the early 1990s, she had worked for the state Workers' Compensation Commission, state Department of Social Services, and Syscom Inc., a Baltimore technology firm.

"To go to LaVonne's house for a gathering was to go for a feast," said her mother, Helen M. Walker of Lochearn. "Her cakes and sweet potato pies were to die for. When she attended events for family or friends, she could be depended on to bring a special dish or a dessert, whether asked or not."

She enjoyed traveling and shopping.

She was an active member of the Rising Star Lodge of the Order of the Eastern Star and the Naomi Grand Chapter of the Hiram Grand Lodge.

Mrs. Walker-Webb was a member of New Psalmist Baptist Church, 4501 Old Frederick Road, where services will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday.

Also surviving are her daughter, Arianna Shardae Webb of Lochearn; her father, Tuskanoid Walker of Owings Mills; a brother, Justin Walker of Lochern; a sister, LaToia Walker of Lochearn; and paternal grandparents, the Rev. Tuskanoid and Wilma Walker of Lochearn. Her marriage to Arlan Webb ended in divorce.
