In regards to Glendale Cemetery, it had once been a privately operated cemetery next to publicly operated Monmouth cemetery, on North Sixth street in Monmouth. It became part of Monmouth cemetery a long time ago, and is now known as the Glendale addition to Monmouth cemetery. I see you have added memorials for them on Find A Grave.

As for their son, Charles F. Walters, his obituary states he died in Florida and services were held there. The obituary did not specifically state he was buried there, though. He was married twice, with a daughter of his first marriage. He might have been buried in Oquawka, where his second wife was later buried.

Karen Reeder

Karen Reeder of Austin passed away on March 28, 2007 after a six month, brave fight against cancer. She had a full life as a wife, mother, proofreader, volunteer, traveler, quilter, and friend.

She was born January 3, 1939 in Monmouth, IL to Alma (Pat) and Charles Walters. At age six she moved to Waco, TX when Pat married Jim P. Wilkirson. After graduating from Waco High, she attended SMU and then UT studying nutrition. After her freshman year she met the love of her life, Hugh, at Austin Avenue Methodist Church in Waco. When he graduated from Rice and received a commission in the US Navy, they were married on June 11, 1960. Karen then began four years of being a navy wife in San Diego and Long Beach, CA. When Hugh's ship deployed to the Western Pacific, she returned to UT and finished her degree. The Reeder family moved to Austin in January 1966. Karen made many friends in Austin and around the world. She volunteered at Zachary Scott Theatre making costumes, in several elementary school libraries assisting librarians and as a quilting demonstrator/coordinator at Pioneer Farms. She proofread dissertations for a typing service. Karen took up quilting with a passion and made beautiful quilts for family and friends. She also contributed baby quilts to expectant mothers, lap quilts for nursing home residents, and red, white and blue quilts for wounded veterans. She was active in the Austin Quilt Guild and several quilting bees.

Karen and Hugh were fortunate to be able to take extended trips to many parts of the world. They have enjoyed taking long trips in their RV visiting national parks, friends, and family. In all, she visited 27 countries and 49 states of the USA. She made many friends, especially, in England and had pleasant stays with them. Last year they toured Italy, Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji.

Karen is survived by her husband Hugh Reeder, children Victoria of Sherman, TX, and Marshall of Lubbock, TX and their spouses Roger Gregory-Allen and Melodi Reeder, grandchildren Hilary and Davis of Sherman and Thian and Karly of Lubbock, and sister Patricia Darkow of Uniontown, OH.

Karen chose to donate her body to medical science through the LifeLegacy organization of Phoenix, AZ. A celebration of her life will be held Saturday April 7 at 10am in the Austin-Peel and Son Funeral Home Chapel.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions should be made to Hospice of Austin or the charity of your choice.

Austin-Peel & Son Funeral Home. 607 E. Anderson Lane, Austin, TX. 78752
