She was born in Mecklenburg County to Kathy Helton Hefner and Chessie Lee Freeman. Jennifer taught Pre-K for Gaston County Schools for 16 years.

Those left to cherish her memory include her parents, Kathy Helton Hefner and her husband Mike and Chessie Lee Freeman and his wife Pat; her husband, Wesley Walker; her children, Jordan, Brandon, and Trenton Sherrill; step-son, Jonathan Walker; and her fur babies, Wrigley, Whitney, Wilson, and Henry. The family will greet guests from 6:00 until 9:00 p.m. Monday, August 23, 2021 at Woodlawn Funeral Home in Mount Holly. A service to celebrate her life will be held at 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, also at the funeral home. Interment will conclude at Hillcrest Gardens Cemetery in Mount Holly.
