“Shocked and Heartbroken due to the sudden loss”- a statement by House Minority Leader Crystal Quade.
The former Missouri representative from Ferguson, Cora Faith Walker, who served as policy chief at St. Louis County Sam Page has died at a very young age of 37. The reason for the death was not known.
“We are devastated to learn of Cora Faith Walker’s passing.” said the Missouri Democratic Party. “She was a perfect example of a dedicated public servant who deeply cared for the St. Louis community,” it said. “We’ve lost someone very special and too soon.”
To represent the House’s 74th District, she was first elected in 2016. Then in 2019, the Democrat resigned her to take the job with Page’s administration. Cora’s county biography said that she had overseen government relations, public policy operations, and regulatory affairs.
Cora took some other things seriously and served on a task force studying women’s participation and advancement in the workshop. Her county biography said that she had worked on health reform and Medicaid expansion.
Page issued a statement on Friday afternoon “I am deeply saddened by the passing of Cora Faith Walker. Cora walked into my office every day with a hundred ideas and the determination to do them. She was a passionate public servant who advocated for women, newborns, survivors of sexual violence, reproductive rights, seniors, and frontline health care workers. She will be greatly missed by her St. Louis County government colleagues and me. We offer our condolences to her husband, Tim, and her parents.”
