Life Reflections of

Shirley Ann Sanders Walker  the daughter of William and Louise Sanders, Sr. was born in Marion, Alabama on August 23, 1954.


She confessed her faith in Christ at an early age at the Vilula Baptist Church in Marion.  She moved to Fort Wayne, Indiana in 1967.  She attended Central High School and was employed as a Production Operator for TI Automotive.


Through the battle of her health she never gave up.  Sometimes in the darkest most painful moments of her battle she would try hard to conceal it from those she loved.  She was always trying to be the peacemaker.  She loved family gatherings, playing Bingo and going to the Casino.
