Madeleine Carrol (Driggins) Walters, age 80, passed away peacefully on January 4, 2023, at the Glenwood Retirement Village in Glenwood, MN surrounded by family.  

 Madeleine, the daughter of Oscar and Doris (Westboe) Driggins, was born on April 3, 1942, in Fergus Falls, MN.  She was baptized at the Erdahl Evangelical Church, was confirmed at First Lutheran Church in Morris, and graduated from Morris High School in 1960.  On September 4, 1965, she married Edward Pace Jones at First Lutheran Church in Morris. They resided in Morris for many years.  After his passing she married Edward Walters on August 6, 1981. They lived in Chokio, MN and later moved to Chaska, MN where she worked at the Chaska Community Center for over 30 years.  

Madeleine had many interests and artistic talents.  She loved quilting, painting beautiful ceramic Santa‚Äôs, and Hardanger, a Norwegian embroidery.  These were a few of the creative gifts she loved to share with family.  She enjoyed the outdoors, downhill skiing, fishing, bird watching and photography. Madeleine looked forward to her yearly fishing trips to Canada in the spring.   She especially enjoyed decorating for the holidays and spending them with her family.  Madeleine took pride in fashion and was always dressed to the nines with her outfit topped off with one of her favorite hats.    

Madeleine is survived by her son David Jones (Sandra), Jonathon Walters, Raymond (Mary) Walters; her grandchildren Rossitor, Austin and Gabrielle Jones,  Mason, Kayle, Cole and Emma Walters, Andrew and Jacob Aaberg; her siblings Cheryl (Gordon) Lea, Jeffrey (Virginia) Driggins, Deborah (Mark) Mattheis, Rebecca (Barry) Hogen, and her beloved nieces and nephews.

 She was preceded in death by her parents Oscar and Doris Driggins; sisters Marsha Driggins and Bonita Baker; brother Gary Driggins and husbands Edward Jones and Edward Walters.
