My wife was at Starbucks and the car died and would not start. I was able to get the shift lock open and in to neutral to push the car out. My voltmeter showed 11.26 volts of power. Alternator fuse on power post was not popped. I am having walmart charge the battery right now.

Sounds like alternator died. Replacing the battery will temp fix it. Check voltage when running. Should be 14.4ish. Less and it will happen again.

Surprised the battery warning light never came on, but as above, once battery charged, check voltage when running.
Hope we hear final results.
