Grace Carolyn Pearson Walters gained her wings on Thursday, April 16, 2020, at the age of 82. She was known as Carolyn, Mamma, Little Mamma, and Grannie. She is survived by her children Margaret (Gene) Cole, Robert F. (Penny) Walters III, Grace (Michael) Oswalt; grandchildren Haley Cole, Hillary Cole, Lee Rachel) Jones, Nicole Oswalt, Scott (Hayley) Walters, Jessica Oswalt, Stephanie Walters, her great-grandchildren Cade Jones, Collins Jones, Lukas Olinger and Weston Walters as well as numerous cousins, family, and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents John L. and Lyda Grace Thomas Pearson, and the love of her life and husband of 44 years Robert F. "Bobby" Walters, Jr. After nearly twenty years apart, we are sure there has been much rejoicing in Heaven.
Grannie was known for her impeccable cooking skills, love of gardening and flowers which accompanied her green thumb that could seem to nurture life into any plant. She was fiercely devoted to her family and delighted in spending time with them. Very much a hands-on grandmother, Grannie stayed involved in her children's and grandchildren's lives and was incredibly proud of her three great-grandsons and great granddaughter. Her loving nature and quick wit are something her family will cherish for years to come. She loved Jesus and her Society Hill Baptist Church family.
A private funeral will be held on April 17, 2020, with Reverand Mark Carlock officiating. A celebration of life where all of her friends, family, and loved ones can gather will be held on a later date when social distancing restrictions are lifted.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Society Hill Cemetery Association 26765 US Hwy 80 Opelika AL 36804.
