Ann Shevlot-Walker made her entrance into heaven on Tuesday, April 29, 2014. Her devoted husband, David Walker, and her children were by her side. She was indeed surrounded by her legacy of love.
Ann was the daughter of Scottish immigrants, Colin and Jane Nicol, and was born June 17, 1934, in Westbury, New York. It was in New York where she met her first love, Bob Shevlot. They married in 1955 and raised four incredible children.
Ann and Bob moved to Indianapolis in 1961 and continued to raise their family, where they were actively involved in the lives of their children. Bob passed away after a brief illness, and Ann continued to devote her life to her children and church.
In 1988, Ann married the second love of her life, David Walker. The two were inseparable and spent much of their time traveling, working in their church and volunteering for the USO. She was also a frequent runner in the Indianapolis mini-marathon. Ann and David’s passion and devotion for Jesus Christ and their faith was evident in everything they did.
When Annie was diagnosed with MDS in 2000, David became her rock and was an amazing caregiver. His love and devotion to her was unsurpassed.
Annie was an exceptional mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, wife, friend and servant. She lived her life in a godly manner, and her devotion to her family, faith and community was unwavering.
She will long be remembered for her unconditional love for her husband, David, her family and her many friends. She leaves behind her legacy of four children, all of whom reside in Indianapolis: Nancy, Rob, Tom and Susan. She is also survived by five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests that donations be made one of two charities that were near and dear to Annie’s heart: MDS-foundation.org/donate or Southland Community Church in Greenwood.
Visitation will be from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Friday at Southland Community Church, 5800 W. Smith Valley Road, Greenwood, with a service to follow at 7 p.m. Friday at the church. A private burial for family only will be on Saturday.
Arrangements were entrusted to Wilson St. Pierre Funeral Service and Crematory.
