Clara Walters

FAIRMONT — Clara B. Walters, 73, of Fairmont, passed from this life Monday (Jan. 9, 2012) at Monongalia General Hospital after a long illness.

She was born in Fairmont on May 8, 1938, a daughter of the late George O. and Rose Ann Hannah Haddix.

She was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who was an active member of the Pleasant Hill Church of the Brother. She formerly worked in the dietary department at the state hospital. She has lived at the Marion Unity Apartments for several years and has been very active with many of the residents. She enjoyed helping others; although she has been ill for quite some time, she would do whatever she could to brighten someone else’s life. She loved to shop, sing karaoke and play bingo.

Ms. Walters is survived by her daughter, Anna Dunkle of Enterprise; her son and daughter-in-law, Floyd “Alex” and Michelle Walters of Fairmont; one brother and sister-in-law, Charles and Leta Haddix of Levels; five grandchildren, Jessica, Anthony and Roman Walters, Timothy Fisher and Monica Hart; five great-grandchildren; and many, many friends.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Floyd Alexander Walters in 1990; one daughter, Barbara Vangilder; three brothers, Lloyd, Walter and John Haddix; and three sisters, Leora Rudy, Mary Kathleen Collins and Dorotha May Shaffer.

In keeping with her wishes, her body has been cremated. There will be no funeral home visitation.

Friends will be received at the social room on the ground floor of the Marion Unity Apartments on Quincy Street from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. A memorial service will be held in her honor at 1 p.m. She will be interred next to her husband in the Nuzum Cemetery at a later date. Condolences may be sent to the family at or
