A tribute to Brenda Maynard Walters is scheduled Monday at 11 a.m. the Cathedral of the Rockies in Downtown Boise.
Walters, 46, died Wednesday of a pulmonary embolism, two days after knee surgery.
She spent a decade as an aide to former U.S. Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, and was deputy campaign manager of GOP Gov. Butch Otter’s 2010 successful re-election campaign. In May, she began a new job as senior immigration administrator in the Energy and Construction Division at URS Corp.
Rather than flowers, the family suggests donations to the Brenda Maynard Walters Memorial Fund for the Giraffes at Zoo Boise. To donate call Zoo Boise at 608-7760 or visit the website to designate a donation in her name. Walters and her husband, Nathan, had no children, but raised Lucy, their beloved corgi.
