OBITUARY ~ SISTER CAROLYN MILDRED (JOSEPH MARY) WALTERS
June 21, 1919 ~ November 10, 2015

Sister Carolyn Walters (Joseph Mary), CHM, 96, died at Bishop Drumm Retirement Center, Johnston, IA on Tuesday, November 10, 2015.

Funeral services and Mass of Christian Burial will be 11:00 am Saturday, November 14, 2015 at Humility of Mary Center, Davenport. Burial is in Mount Calvary Cemetery, Davenport. Visitation is 4:00 to 7:00 pm Friday, November 13, Rosary at 4 pm; Vigil Service at 7 pm at Humility of Mary Center, Davenport.

Carolyn Mildred Walters was born to Bert and Margaret O’Grady Walters on June 21, 1919 in Beaconsfield, IA. She entered the Congregation of the Humility of Mary in 1937, professing vows in 1939.

Sister graduated from Marycrest College in Davenport; she taught at St. Mary, Ottumwa, Cosgrove Consolidated, St. Anthony, Des Moines and Georgetown Public School. In 1943 she became Assistant to the Dean of Marycrest College and Registrar in 1954, a position she held until 1970. After completing an MA in Gerontology at the University of Southern Florida and certification in Clinical Pastoral Education from the University of Chicago, she served as Co-Director of Social Concerns for the Diocese of Jefferson City, MO. Her background was ideal for work with the ageing; she connected seniors with appropriate services. Workshops and study of death and dying added to Sister’s ministry with others. With her CNA certificate, she served as nurse aide in the Ottumwa Heights Infirmary.

In 1983 she became Coordinator of Alumni Records for Marycrest/Teikyo-Marycrest College in Davenport. She was co-founder of the Quad Cities Chapter of Alzheimer’s Association. In 2000 she retired to the Humility of Mary Center and in 2012 to Bishop Drumm Retirement Center.

Sister is survived by nieces, cousins, numerous friends and the Sisters and Associates of her religious community. She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Francis.

Memorials may be made to the Congregation of the Humility of Mary.
