She was born on July 21, 1936, In Lafayette, Louisiana. She moved to Beaumont with her family when she was 16 and graduated from Beaumont High in 1956. Her teenage kids kept her on her toes; she never knew what would be in her freezer ( a bobcat, courtesy of Danny). Jimbo had a pet skunk in the living room one day, & Kenny rode a horse into her kitchen when she was trying to cook!  BJ would sleep walk during her teen years and she would find her either on the porch or in the car! Later in life she continued her love of cooking by having the extended family over for Sunday dinners. She loved fishing, riding 4 wheelers, and hunting with her late husband Earl. One of her biggest thrills was shooting her first turkey! Her and Earl cooked for many years at the Village Creek Club in Lumberton. She travelled with her church group for awhile & pre-pandemic she spent many days at the Lumberton Senior Center playing cards & socializing. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

She is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Earl L Walton; sisters, Pat Johnson and Mary Warner; son, Jimbo Duvall, Jr.; daughter, BJ Gillard; and granddaughter, Amanda Duvall.

    I just learned of Gen’s passing and I am so saddened. I met Gen at the senior center in Lumberton and we became good friends. We played cards together, sat by one another at lunch & sometimes went out to lunch together. I called her every week at the nursing facility until she could no longer take calls. She confided in me a lot and I know she had a wonderful loving family. She said her last surprise birthday party was one of the best days of her life.
