Her name has already gone down in history for her role in the Pulaski County desegregation. It is Mrs. Joshua who gives her name to the "Joshua intervenors," the representatives of black students in Pulaski County schools whose interest lawyer John Walker has represented for so long.  Funeral is at noon Jan. 19 at St. Peter's Rock Baptist Church in North Little Rock.
