Jean A. Walters, 75, of Waupun, died Monday, August 19, 2013 at Waupun Memorial Hospital with her family at her side.

Jean was born May 17, 1938 in Oakfield the daughter of Benjamin and Nellie Christiansen Edmunds.

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.
