Margaret “Peggy” Walters

WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (June 3, 2014) — Margaret “Peggy” Walters, daughter of the late Louis Henry and Joan Caroline (Baumbauer) DeWitt, was born April 6, 1944 in Wabash, Ind.. She went home to be with her Lord Monday, June 2, 2014 in the Life Care Center of Waynesville, after a courageous battle with brain cancer.

Due to Peggy’s father being in the military, the family moved to the Fort Leonard Wood area in 1954 and then rented a house in Waynesville in 1957. Peggy attended school in Waynesville and graduated in 1962 from Waynesville High School.

On July 13, 1961, Peggy was united in marriage to the man of her dreams, Ronald “Ronnie” Dean Walters. They were married in Miami, Oklahoma and they shared many wonderful memories together and two children, Richard and Sandra. They had just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary together before Ronnie preceded her in death on January 3, 2012.

Peggy worked for several years on Fort Leonard Wood in alterations before beginning 22 year tenure at the Pulaski County Courthouse. During her 22 years at the courthouse, Peggy worked the first five years in Traffic Court, and then spent the next 16 years serving under retired Judge Tracy Storie as his clerk and served 1 year under Judge Colin Long. She loved working for both judges and visiting with all the attorneys that came through her office.

In her spare time, Peggy was a very good seamstress and also enjoyed crocheting and sharing her talent with family and friends. According to her family, Peggy baked the best lemon pies any one could ask for. She enjoyed watching games shows on television, especially Jeopardy and also liked to watch bull riding. She loved her family deeply and enjoyed helping them as much as she could, especially the grandkids.

Peggy and Ronnie were members of the Cave State Cruisers Car Club for 20 years and they enjoyed going to car shows together. She enjoyed traveling with Ronnie in their fifth wheel camper and spending the winters in South Texas. They were truly inseparable in their later years together and loved each other dearly.

As a young girl, Peggy made a profession of faith and was a member of the Westside Baptist Church of Waynesville. She loved her church family tremendously and one of the greatest joys in her life was when Ronnie accepted Jesus as his Savior in 2011. They are now enjoying the joys of heaven together.

Peggy will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by all those that knew and loved her. She leaves to cherish her memory, her two children: Richard Walters of Arlington, Texas, and Sandra Taylor of Colorado Springs, Colo.; five siblings: Kenneth DeWitt (Mary) of Star City, Ark., David DeWitt (Sharon) of Springfield, Judith Ann Fisher (Bob) of Springfield, William DeWitt (Judy) of St. Louis and Linda DeWitt of Wabash, Ind.; five grandchildren: Mandy, Patty, Pam, Zach, and Justin; six great grandchildren; special friends: Darlene & Jim Sheffield of St. Robert; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
