Sharon D. (Wynn) Walter

July 2, 1941 — October 31, 2014

Sharon Diane (Wynn) Walter, age 73, died at Clearview Home on
October 31, 2014, surrounded by her loved ones, after a courageous battle with
Muscular System Atrophy, a rapidly progressive neurological disease.
Sharon Diane (Wynn) Walter, the daughter of Dorothy (Rhine) Wynn and
Woodrow Wynn, was born July 2, 1941 on the family farm north of
Prescott, Iowa. She grew up attending country school (Carl #7) at Mt. Zion
until her high school years, when she graduated from Prescott High School
in 1959 with Ronald, her high school sweetheart. They were united in marriage
on June 19, 1960 and have been soul mates ever since. Born to bless their
lives were three very lucky children, Denise, Doug, and Jodi. Ronnie and
Sharon were also honored to be host parents to Jouni Eskola of Finland.
The couple have been life long residents of the Prescott community.
Sharon had always been Rons right hand lady, helping with every aspect of
their life of farming on Sha-Ron Farm. She loved being a farm wife, homemaker,
stay at home mom, and devoted grandma.
Throughout her life, Sharon worked at several different places. She worked at
Mutual of Omaha right after high school, at Wee Care Daycare in Corning, and
as a special education aide at Prescott Community School. She and Ron
cleaned the Happy Hollow Country Club for many years, and mowed both the
Icarian Colony yards and the Prescott Community School yard. She was a loving
caregiver for many years for Jodi, as she battled Lupus, and later became
Ronnies voice and advocate after he lost his ability to speak.
Her real joy in life was her family and friends. Her hands were always busy
creating beautiful keepsakes. She loved crocheting afghans and sewing quilts
for the grandchildren. She especially liked trying new recipes to add to their list
of grandmas favorites. Her grandchildren cherished the time that she spent
with them. Ronnie and she spent many years camping at the Iowa State Fair,
as well as following the Kansas City Royals. Making phone calls and
sending cards to those in need, along with personal notes tucked inside, all
helped fill her personal life. Fridays were a special day for her to spend time
with the ladies coffee group at the library.
Sharon was a member of the Prescott Disciples of Christ since childhood.
She loved her church and helped in many capacities over the years.
Sharon read her Bible every day and lived a true Christian life. Even with lifes
ups and downs, she never faltered from her faith. She and Ronnie were also
very active in the community and were chosen to be Grand Marshalls in the
Prescott Septemberfest parade.
Sharon will be especially remembered as someone who always thought of others
first, had a kind gentle soul, was always willing to help, and made the most
delicious desserts. She gave the best hugs and had a beautiful smile for all
those around her. She was happiest when her house was full of family and
friends, epecially her children and grandchildren. She wore her heart on her
sleeve and was adored by those who knew her.
Left to cherish her memory are her husband and love of her life of fifty-four
years, Ron Walter of Prescott; two children: daughter Denise and husband
Larry Kester of Corning, Iowa, and son Doug and wife Terri Walter of Kearney,
Missouri; six grandchildren: Bret, Brennan (fiance Brianne), and Curtis
(wife Erin) Kester, Kami (husband Sam) DeAlejandro, Heath and Hayden Walter;
four great-grandchildren: Seth, Ethan, and Daxton DeAlejandro, and Evelyn
Kester; sister Sandy (husband Gary) Krauth, brother Kevin (wife Joedy) Wynn;
sisters-in-law: Carol Hunter, Connie (husband Tim) Sheets, Lometa
(husband Reldon) Spring, Jackie Wynn, and Terry Walter; brother-in-law Eldon
(wife Cindy) Walter, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and special
friends, along with foreign exchange son Jouni Eskola (wife Nelli) of Finland and
their children; and the caring staff of Clearview Home and Hospice of
Southwest Iowa who gave her the 24 hour care and love she needed and
deserved as her disease progressed.
Welcoming her to her new heavenly home with arms wide open are her daughter
Jodi Walter, parents, Woody and Dorothy Wynn, brother Paul Wynn,
brothers-in-law Richard Walter and Sewell Hunter, sister-in-law Sharen Walter,
and in-laws Fred and Rose Walter, along with other family members and some
very dear friends.
“Our angel on earth has been given her wings!”
