[leftcolumn] Jean was born May 17, 1938 in Oakfield the daughter of Benjamin and Nellie Christiansen Edmunds. On June 15, 1957 she married Richard Walters and the couple lived in Waupun most of their married lives. Jean became a licensed beautician in 1957, worked for various shops, and then operated her own business in her present home from 1978 until she retired in 2003.

Family was most important to Jean as she raised her four boys and considered her many customers as her family as well. Jean was proud of her flower garden and loved sharing them with family and friends. Dick and Jean enjoyed traveling to visit their children and an occasional trip to the casino was welcomed. Jean’s sons thought of her as the center of their lives and the glue that held the family together. Jean was an active member of both the Waupun and Brandon United Methodist Churches where she shared her talents and also served on many committees.

Jean is survived by her husband, Richard, of Waupun; four sons, Timothy (Diane) Walters of Waupun, Mark (Lori) Walters of Kalispell, MT, Daniel (special friend Christina) Walters of Onalaska, and Matthew (Tyra) Walters of Waupun; and seven grandchildren, Paul, Kristen, Susan, Madison, Jared, Richard, and Benjamin.

She was preceded in death by her parents; three brothers; and one sister.

    To all the Walters family,

    Was searching for Tim’s information in order to make an entry into the Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes and I saw the obituary listed for Aunt Jean.

    Have sent a card to Dick. Feel pretty sick & upset. Will wear a black dress to church tomorrow that was my mother’s . Wiil send all of you “boys”, (you are all wonderful grown men) something via snail mail.

    As much as I can write at times in letters, emails, etc., I cannot think of anything that expresses how I feel. Terrible, grief stricken, angry, and alone.

    Tomorrow I will be 63. It will not be a happy birthday. I have joked about having “middle age dyslexia” and that I am doing 36 again. But my hair is silver and gray, my hands show my age and I am according to my son, Ian, an old lady.

    May I offer a little advice- Go vegan/ vegetarian. Get some exercise as often as you can and do what the Spirit prompts you to do. Each one of you has different talents, so each one of you will be prompted differently.

    Take good care of one another.

    Rebecca Jean Rens
