Rosemary “Joan” (Fox) Walters, 86, passed away peacefully at Mid-Michigan Medical Center with her family by her side, Tuesday, February 6, 2018.  She was born on December 26, 1931 to Mildred and Henry Fox.

 

She married the love of her life, Calvin Hoover Walters.  He preceded her in death.  Together they had two rambunctious boys, Calvin “Butch” Herbert and Michael “Mike” John.  They were always busy hunting, fishing or racing as a family.  She was an avid member of the Mid-Miche Bowman Club and could out shoot any man with her bow. 

Joan was often found galivanting with son, Mike to numerous doctors’ appointments and she took her role as mom very seriously to ensure proper medical care until he passed away in January 2008.

 

Joan was extra busy taking on the role of grandmother.  Her son Butch married Mary Ann (Skalnican) and quickly introduced grandchildren, Chad and Katie into her life.  Oftentimes if she was not taking care of Mike, she was chasing her favorite grandkids around.

Her true joy came along when her great grandchildren entered her life.  Sophia, Elayna and Tannar were her pride and joy.  A day didn’t go by without her finding out about their latest adventures or showing off her many pictures which she proudly carried in her purse.  She looked forward to the days in which they would visit, and all opportunities that she could spoil them with her famous mac n’ cheese.

 

She leaves behind her daughter in-law, Mary Ann Walters, grandson, Chad (Theresa) Walters have two children, Elayna and Tannar who reside in Midland.  Granddaughter, Katie (Jason Morford, fiancé) Hovanec, has one daughter Sophia Rose who reside in Grand Blanc.  Joan is pre-deceased by her parents, husband in 1983, and two sons in 2008 and 2017.
