Isarene “Icey” Walker, 96, of Lincoln, NE, a most generous and angelic soul, took her last breath and transitioned to her heavenly home, peacefully on Saturday, May 15, 2021 surrounded by her daughters.  Momma Icey was the only child born to the union of Isom Harris and Roxie Ann Cotton in Tillar, AR on August 13, 1924.  Her mother was the first Church Mother and instrumental in the foundation of Angelic Temple Church of God in Christ in Lincoln, NE, where Momma Icey’s membership and love for the Davis’ family continued until her death.
