Jane M. Walter, 81, of Baltimore, OH passed away at Fairfield Medical Center on November 13th, 2020. Jane was born to the late Ralph and Leota (Wilkins) Badertscher on May 11th, 1939 in Bluffton, Ohio. Jane was loved dearly by all who knew her and will be greatly missed. Jane loved her family deeply and spent as much time as she could with her children and grandchildren. Jane was retired from the Fairfield Medical Center, where she employed her loving and caring personality as an X-Ray technician. Jane also loved traveling and water aerobics. She enjoyed multiple trips back and forth to Alaska and Colorado. She visited Ireland and enjoyed a Caribbean cruise to celebrate her 70th birthday. She was also happy just to enjoy a long drive with her husband on a beautiful day. Jane was a faithful church member and was always involved in events at Grace United Church of Christ in Lancaster, and recently at Trinity United Church of Christ in Baltimore. She also sang in the choir at Broad Street Presbyterian, where she met Jim, and at Grace UCC.  Her voice, kindness, and memory will be cherished by us all.  

Jane is survived by her loving husband of 51 years, James Walter; sons, Dr. John (Julie) Walter, Jason (Kelly) Walter, Joel (Leah) Walter; daughter, Jessica Walter; grandchildren, Jamie, Jacob, George and Emily Walter; brother, Dean Badertscher; nieces and nephews, Pete (Sara) Badertscher, Lori (Bill) Barnes, Sue (Walter) Delgado, Mark (Marjorie) Hrabe, Julie Snider, Ann (Stan) LeBahn; and sisters-in-law, Renee Badertscher and Janice Hrabe.
