Battle Creek

Olga Kathleen Walters, of Battle Creek, passed away Monday, September 8, 2014 at Lifespan Good Samaritan Hospice Residence.

Olga was born April 26, 1924 in Belfast, Northern Ireland to Thomas Edward and Mary Ellen (Burton) Craig. She immigrated to the United States in 1949 to visit relatives in Battle Creek, where she was naturalized as a U.S. citizen. She was employed as a secretary by Transamerica Insurance Company and later by the Kellogg Company, where she met Richard R. (Dick) Walters. Olga then spent three years at the Battle Creek Sanitarium after being diagnosed with tuberculosis. Dick visited her every day and they married in 1951.

Olga enjoyed many years working with Dick in their antiques business, The Old Beckley Schoolhouse Antiques. She was very active with the First Congregational Church and the Mary Daniels Circle. She enjoyed knitting, painting, playing cards and spending time with her two grandsons.

Olga was preceded in death by her parents; a sister, Marie Burton Craig; and her loving husband of 50 years, Richard R. (Dick) Walters in 2001. She is survived by son, Richard Craig (Laura) Walters of Battle Creek; grandsons, Richard Christopher (Natalie) Walters of Chicago, IL and Sean S. (Natalie) Walters of Roswell, Georgia; niece, Margaret (Raymond) Hudson and nephew, Mark Hudson, both of Belfast, Northern Ireland.

A family committal has taken place at Memorial Park Cemetery. A memorial service for Olga will be announced at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made in Olga's name to the First Congregational Church, 145 Capital Ave. N.E., Battle Creek, MI 49015 or to the Boys and Girls Club of Battle Creek, 35 W Hamblin Ave, Battle Creek, MI 49017.
