Lois Maxine Walter Aug. 2, 1930 - Aug. 5, 2018

Lois Maxine Walter, 88, of Warren, passed away on Sunday, Aug. 5, 2018, at Lutheran Hospital, Fort Wayne, following a valiant battle with cancer.

Lois was born on Aug. 2, 1930, in Huntington County to Charles and Ina (Pinkerton) Love. A lifelong resident of Jefferson Township, she graduated from Jefferson Township High School in 1948. On Jan. 6, 1951, she married Jerry Walter, who preceded her in death. Throughout their marriage, Lois was an active partner with Jerry on their livestock and grain farm. Together they raised three children, Gary (Rosalie) Walter and David (Lynette) Walter, all of Warren, and Susan (Merlyn) Lucas of Knox, all who survive. Also surviving are seven grandchildren, Matthew (Lianna) Walter, Michelle (Andy) Rans, Jeff (Sydney) Walter, Braden (Liza) Walter, Brandt Walter, Crystal (Sang Mark) Chung and Jeremy (Claudia) Lucas; 13 great-grandchildren and several nephews and nieces. She was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Lorene Hill.

Lois’s life passions included her strong Christian faith, devotion to her family, music and art. A lifelong member of Jefferson Center United Methodist Church and Solid Rock United Methodist Church, she shared her gift of music by faithfully serving as church pianist and organist for more than 60 years. While an accomplished musician, her creative talents also were evident in her many landscape and nature oil paintings. To her family, Lois offered unwavering support throughout any circumstances. Family gatherings were punctuated by hugs, laughter and a tangible sense of unconditional love. Lois’s life was devoted to service to others, and her service was performed with quiet strength and grace.

Friends and family may gather to share and remember Lois on Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2018, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Solid Rock United Methodist Church, 485 Bennett Drive, Warren, Indiana.
