Teresa "Teri" was born April 17, 1945, in Canton, N.Y., the daughter of Carlton and Verice Hollister. Her childhood and teen years were spent growing up in Michigan's Upper Peninsula at Manistique. She married David S. Walters on Sept. 17, 1966, in Grand Ledge, and he survives her.
Following high school, she worked for John Deere in Lansing, Mich., and during her married life, she worked at the Clare County Michigan nursing home as well as various secretarial/administrative positions in the cities where they resided. Mostly, she was a loving wife, mom and grandmother. She was a member of Geneseo Evangelical Free Church.
Her passions were teaching children, formerly through Child Evangelism Fellowship and in Sunday school, church missionary support and activities and women's Bible studies along with being a mentor in MOPS and friend. She loved following her children's and grandchildren's activities. They all have chosen to accept and follow Jesus, and she looks forward to being with them for eternity.
Survivors include her husband, David; son (and daughter-in-law), John (Angie) Walters, Davenport; daughter and son-in-law, Jenifer (Aaron) Baugher, Ankeny, Iowa; granddaughter, Brienna Baugher; grandsons, Colby Baugher, Reid Walters, Zach Walters, Tate Walters and Cole Walters; brother, Taren (Pam) Hollister, Council Bluffs, Iowa; and sister, Tammy (Brett) Smith, Manistique; and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents and an infant brother.
Special thanks are due to many friends and relatives who have blessed and encouraged the family during the time of her illness and to Dr. Stewart Garneau and his staff for providing professional and compassionate care treatment.
