MUNCIE- Ann Louise (Walker) Miller, a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and educator, passed onto glory on Tuesday, December 4th. Born January 11th 1926, in Anderson, Indiana, Ann was the daughter of Earl Daniel Walker and Olive Shirley Walker. Ann graduated from Anderson High School in 1944, and after a semester at Ball State, she married Robert Eugene Miller, her loving husband of 54 years. Ann and Bob were loving parents to Shirley Anne Hochstetler (Richard) and John Robert Miller (Grace). Ann spent many years tending her home with love, where she baked and cooked and brought up her children. In addition to her home life, Ann earned a degree in elementary education from Ball State Teachers College in 1961, and she devoted 32 years as a first grade teacher in Muncie Community Schools at Anthony and Storer Elementaries. Upon retirement, she was a member of Delaware County Retired Teachers Association and Sigma Delta Pi. Ann was also devout in her faith, as she was an active member of Madison Street and High Street UMC, where she enjoyed bazaars, Update Learning, line dancing, and women’s study groups. A creative woman, Ann loved knitting, and many children and babies, including Prime Minister Blair’s son, enjoyed the gift of her booties, sweaters, mittens, and scarves.

Ann leaves a wonderful legacy of family. She had seven grandchildren: Julie Morrow (Bryan), John Hochstetler (Shana), Jenny Tomlinson (Tim), Jeff Miller (Allison), Greg Miller (Kim), Tom Hochstetler (Christie), and Sarah Gibbs (Jeff). She was also a great-grandmother to 19: Tucker, Chase, and Jack Morrow; Beckett, Will, Henry, and Caroline Hochstetler; Sydney, Hannah, and Haley Tomlinson; Ciara Hostettler; Bodhi Miller; Claire and Lily Hochstetler; Riley, Hayden, and Lukas Corwin; and Parker and Graham Gibbs. In addition, she loved caregiver, Christy Sheridan.

The family extends its deepest gratitude for all of the visitors, calls, cards, and care, especially the wonderful nurses at Ball Hospital who cared for her.
