Ilene Rose Walters

Ilene Rose Walters, 82, longtime resident of Taylorville died on Monday May 9, 2022 7:40 am at St. John's Hospital in Springfield, IL after a sudden and recent illness. Ilene was born on May 8, 1940 in Carlinville, Il to parents Irvin and Irene W. (Fowler) Fisher. She married Earl Walters on June 19, 1960 in Carlinville, Il. and had a long and fulfilling career as a legal secretary and bank teller.


Her memory lives on with her husband Earl Walters of Taylorville; daughter Susan (Randy) Kemplin of Le Roy, Il; son Steve (Rhonda) Walters of Taylorville; grandchildren: Mick Schaub, Blake (Kate) Walters, Morgan Schaub, Ashlee Kemplin and Crystal Kemplin; sisters Margaret Bierman of Godfrey, Il, Irene (Don) Brown of Chesterfield, Il, Christine Nejmanowksi of Carlinville, Il, Debra (Tom) Morris of Wilmington, NC. She will be reunited with her parents, brother Jack Fisher, and sister Wilma Speaks.


Ilene was a proud and loving mother and grandmother who cherished spending time with her family. The simplest pleasures in life brought her great joy; she loved roses, gardening, and hummingbird watching. Her grandchildren will always remember the special foods she liked to make for them and the laughter she brought them. 


Please join us on Wednesday May 11, 2022 for a celebration of her life. Visitation will be held from 10:00-11:00 a.m. at Sutton Memorial Home in Taylorville, Il with funeral immediately following. Burial will be in Oak Hill Cemetery in Taylorville, Il.
