Nita Marie Walter was born March 15, 1952, to Marvin H. and Lillian (Wipf) Walter at the St. John’s Medical Center at Huron. Her early years of school were at the Johnson and Hofer Country Schools. She then completed elementary and middle school at the school in Yale. Nita attended high school at James Valley Christian School, where she graduated in 1970. After high school, she worked at the Beadle County Assessor’s Office. In 1971, Nita graduated from Northwest College of Commerce at Huron.

In 1972, Nita moved to Great Bend, Kansas, where she worked at Data Industries. She continued her career at Fuller Brush Company from 1972 to 1978. During that period, she attended Barton Community Junior College in Great Bend, Kansas and graduated in 1991. Nita also worked part-time for Great Bend Manor and Barton Community Junior College.

Nita returned to Huron in 1994. She was employed as a care giver at the Huron Nursing Home. In 1997, Nita decided to move to Phoenix, Arizona, where she continued to work for nursing homes in the area.

In 2006, Nita returned to Huron to care for her Uncle Christy Hofer, for two years until he passed away in 2008.

Nita was a life time member of Bethel Church. She enjoyed sharing her faith with youth by serving on a bus ministry and teaching Sunday School for eighteen years at a First Assembly of God Church at Great Bend, Kansas. Supporting the community was important to Nita. She made it a point to volunteer in numerous ways within her community and church; whether it was taking tickets at a James Valley Christian High School event, helping the elderly at the Salvation Army, or assisting at the Jan Manolis Safe Center. She enjoyed watching football and other sports on tv and was an avid fan of the University of Kansas Jayhawks. Nita was a loyal friend and loved keeping up with her family and friends across the country.

Joseph and Katherine (Kennedy) Walter.

Nita's Register Book

Nita was the most kindest person she would help anybody who needed help. We worked together for years at the nursing home always like our own little family. She always remembered special dates like birthdays anniversaries and Christmas sending out cards. Todd and I always enjoyed our lunch dates catching up on everything. Rest in Peace dear friend you will truly be missed. Wendy Ravenscroft

Nita was a special friend & coworker.We worked at the Nursing Home for many years together. Lots of laughs & many memories. No more pain my friend, fly with the angels. My condolences to Janice & family. Kathy McDonald

We can remember many the phone call we had, arguing about this, that or the other, and we would always end up agreeing to disagree agreeably. Many was the time she called to tell Carroll when a game was cancelled, rescheduled, or the ending score if he happened to miss the game. There were phone calls that we laughed at each other about. There were calls we cried over things, people, happenings, and prayers. I am thankful I was able to give her rides when she felt up to leaving the house or had to go somewhere. There was such a disconnect for me when I was working, but Nita would always call to keep me up to date on what was going on in Huron. There were times those phone calls were inconvenient but we always called back at a better time and never felt slighted because we had to wait for that more convenient time.Loved to hear her laughter. She will be sorely missed by so many. Now I guess Janiece and I will have to pick up some of those traditions. See you later, Nita. Arlene and Carroll
