Sister Walters, 88, entered eternal rest on Wednesday, October 20, 2010 with her family near her side.
In 1957 she was saved by the Lord and filled with the fire of the Holy Ghost. She was a preacher’s daughter and wife who stood
beside her husband while he taught the Gospel. She was a missionary who built churches, had tent revivals, cottage services, hospital services, healing ministries, radio and prison ministries and cast out devils in the name of Jesus all over the
country. Her ministry flowed over the borders into Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, the Barbados, Haiti and Puerto Rico. She along with her husband founded the Turkey Creek Faith Chapel; she was a personal witness to everyone she met, and she was a great
cook who fed anyone who was hungry.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Reverend Murphy Walters; an infant daughter; four brothers, Plesant Muse, Elzie “Brown” Muse, Eli Muse and Preston Muse; five sisters, Arcola Thornton, Avis
May, Alice Muse, Edith “Neeb” Brown and Lilly May.
