Patricia J. 'Pat' Walters

Patricia Jean Routh Park “Pat” Walters died Sunday, March 16, 2014. She spent her childhood in Lebanon.

She received her nurses training at Ball Memorial Hospital and became a nurse cadet during World War II. After the war, she married Sgt. Robert C. Walters and worked as a nurse at Witham Memorial Hospital in Lebanon.

With a growing family, Pat retired from nursing and became an expert seamstress and homemaker.

Her artistry with a needle produced beautiful dresses accented with embroidery and smocking. When complimented, all five of her daughters said, “Thanks. My mother made it.”Pat was also an Air Force wife. While on assignment in the deep South, her Hoosier green thumb cultivated fragrant red roses. After her daughters were grown she returned to nursing, working at Bossier General Hospital in Bossier City, La., and later, at Witham Memorial Hospital, back in Indiana.

Home in Lebanon, Pat quilted, gardened and enjoyed birthdays and holidays with family.

Pat will be greatly missed by her husband, R.C., her daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchild.

In addition to her husband, survivors include five daughters, Jeffra (Jon Kosh) Walters of Montrose, Colo., Jayma Walters of Carmel, Janeen (Lee) Newquist of Fort Worth, Texas, and Janelle (John III) Bedway and Joann (Jon) Ogle, all of Carmel; eight grandchildren, Goss Dembitsky, Kara Wren, Stosch Dembitsky, Jordan Ogle, Jessie Ogle, Clinton Newquist, Wyatt Newquist and Adam Bedway; and one great-grandson, Shadd Dembitsky.

She was preceded in death by a brother, Robert Routh.
