During the year of 1998, LaKeshia Fox-Mizell was added to the staff as a Licensed Funeral Director/Embalmer. Dr. Walker had a vision to expand and with the advice from close friends in the Springfield, Illinois community who felt there was a need for the same professional, dignified, and compassionate service that Walker Funeral Service and Chapel, Inc. had committed itself to providing throughout the years in Springfield.
