A little over a month after she died, a slain Central York High School teacher’s life will be celebrated at 6 p.m. Thursday.  

Erin Walker, 36, died May 22 after she was shot in a dispute with a neighbor who then killed himself. Spring Garden Township Police believe the dispute was over a shed built shortly before the shooting.  

Since her death, the community has started fundraisers for Walker's 3-year-old daughter, Charlea, and scholarships for Central York High School students. By Monday, the Erin Walk Memorial Fund had raised almost $68,000. To donate, go to www.gofundme.com/f/memorial-fund-for-ms-walker.
