August 21, 1948 - January 16, 2022
Paulette Kaye Walker, 73, of Avon, passed away January 16, 2022 at IU Health West Hospital. She was born August 21, 1948 in Indianapolis and was the daughter of Ruth Evelyn Carson and Cecil Norval Huffman, Jr. She is survived by her loving husband, Howard David Walker (Dave), children Christopher David Walker (Lisa), Whitestown, Chad Andrew Walker (Elizabeth), Danville, Kerri Anne Walker Storey (Stan), Indianapolis, grandchildren Sarah Elizabeth Walker, Julia Christine Walker, Addison Delane Walker, Isaac David Walker, Andrew Timothy Walker, Elliott Rhine Storey and Elijah Walker Storey. A sister, Annette M. Hartzell (Jeff) of Greenwood and a brother Larry K. Huffman (Mary Jo) of Baltimore, Maryland, also survive. She was preceded in death by her parents and a sister, Lynette Huffman. Paulette’s greatest joy was her family. She and her husband Dave were married 52 years (April 25, 1970). She was proud of her children and their achievements and adored her seven grandchildren, who affectionately called her “Mama.” She especially enjoyed the celebration of holidays, birthdays and family vacations to Disney World, Holiday World and Gatlinburg. She was always eager to attend church and school programs and athletic events to cheer on her children and grandchildren. Her faith in Christ drove her passion for service and helping people. She left her imprint through volunteerism in the church and her children’s schools. She loved music and was a gifted pianist and violinist, playing in the church orchestra and in special music selections. She was especially active in children’s and teen’s ministries. She attended Westside Church of the Nazarene for many years and was a current member of Grace Pointe Church of the Nazarene. Paulette was devoted to the Church and ministered to friends and family through teaching, counseling, and mentoring. Paulette’s heart for service was reflected in her professional life as well. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Social Work in 1994 from Indiana University at Indianapolis and became a licensed social worker in 1997. She co-authored the Growing through Loss curriculum, which was used in schools and correctional institutions across the country. She was published in Social Work Journal and Bereavement Magazine, and received several awards for her service in the field of grief and loss. Only Heaven will reveal the untold lives touched by Paulette’s service to God and others. She was a faithful wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She fought the good fight, finished her course and kept the faith (2nd Timothy 4:7), and she has now heard the Savior say, “Well done, good and faithful servant!” (Matthew 25:23). Calling will be from 4:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. on Thursday, January 20, at Westside Church of the Nazarene in Indianapolis. Services will take place at 10:00 A.M. the next morning, Friday, January 21, at Westside, with interment to follow in Maple Hill Cemetery, in Plainfield. Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Sproles Family Funeral Home. The Sproles family and staff are honored to serve the family of Paulette K. Walker.
