WALTON -- Bruce St. Clair Walton, son of Agnes and Edwin Walton, was born in Barejo, California on June 24, 1930. His childhood was spent on a farm near Leavenworth, Washington where he grew up with his cousins, the Schmokers. He was in the US Army and was stationed in Iran 1949-1952. After serving his country, he moved to Northern Virginia and was a newspaper distributor for The Washington Post. He parlayed his skills into a career as an accountant with a specialty in corporate tax law. Bruce eventually moved his practice to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Among his clients were Albuquerque Fence Company and Bookbinders of New Mexico which he served for nearly two decades. Bruce's commitment and work ethic was strong throughout his life. In fact, he insisted upon working a full day before admitting himself to the hospital, leading up to his death on January 20, 2008 from pneumonia and respiratory failure. Bruce greatly valued education and continually took and taught courses. He earned a BA and MBA from his studies at George Mason University and Western New Mexico University. Bruce was a pilot, enjoyed photography, and was known to spoil his cats daily with tuna. He was an avid reader of history and biographies. Likewise, he was very fond of traveling to historical and geographical landmarks throughout the western United States. Each year he assisted low income, disabled and elderly people with their tax returns. In 1988 he was recognized by the Governor of New Mexico as an 'Exceptional Volunteer.' In 1975, he married Mary Kageorge. They had an instant family, as she already had 5 children. The two were married for 23 years until her death ten years ago. Through his marriage and an adoption, his family grew to include Kenton Walton; William, Rebecca, Jason and Edward Kageorge; Stephen, Marjory, Joshua, James, and Jonathon Stanek; Bruce, Anne, and Nicole Kageorge; Pat (deceased) and Beth Barlow; and John, Kiran, Jasmine, Rajan, and Jaia Kageorge.

WELLS -- Jackie Wells (Lawton) died at 2:20 p.m. on January 23, 2008, at her home in Albuquerque, surrounded by family and close friends. Jackie is survived by her devoted and loving husband, her true love, Dan; her daughters, Courtney Lawton and her partner, Kathie Dejea, of Albuquerque, and Kellen Lignier, of Morey St. Denis, France; her grandchildren, Lucie and Auguste Lignier and Henry, Joseph, and Abigail Bettinger; her brother, Murray Keeler and his wife, Judy of Animas, New Mexico; her sister, Madeleine Frossard and her husband, Ted of Dallas, Texas; and her beloved nieces and nephews, Shelly, April, Anna, Brandy, Amanda, Cindy, Whitney, Beau, Randy, and Erin. Jackie was born on May 19, 1944, the daughter of Hugh and Beth Keeler, in El Paso, Texas. She graduated from Burgess High School, and later from Hotel-Dieu Nursing School. In 1976, she moved with her daughters to Albuquerque and established her career as an accomplished nurse. She worked for over 20 years at University of New Mexico Hospital, first as an operating-room nurse, then as a plastic surgery specialty nurse, then in the trauma-surgical intensive care unit, and finally in hospice. Jackie was an accomplished artist and gardener, and surrounded herself with wonderful craftspeople and visionaries. She loved traveling, and especially enjoyed South and Central America and France. She was conversant in Spanish and French. A strong woman, she raised her daughters to be strong, self-assured women, too, and she loved Coco and Kellen fiercely. She succumbed to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's Disease, and had bitterly mourned the loss of her arms and legs because she was no longer able to do what she so enjoyed: traveling, gardening, and creating art. Memorial Services are pending, and in lieu of flowers, please honor her memory by making a donation to Medecins sans Frontieres (doctorswithoutborders.org).
