Ann Kathryn Gotwald

August 4, 2014 — February 1, 2024

Westfield, Indiana

Ann Kathryn Gotwald, 9, of Westfield, passed away on Thursday, February 1, 2024. Ann was born August 4, 2014, in Indianapolis. She was a 3rd grade student at Maple Glen Elementary School.


Annie was a ray of light. She brought joy to everything she did and was unfailingly kind and generous to others. She loved soccer, singing, art, traveling, and playing with friends. Her favorite school subject was science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and she wanted to be an engineer for NASA when she grew up. Annie made sure her mom received at least eight hugs a day, was her dad’s sunshine, and adored and looked up to her big sister. She and her family were members of St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church.


Family and friends are invited to gather and celebrate Annie’s life on Tuesday, February 6, from 3:00 to 7:30 pm at Flanner Buchanan-Hamilton Memorial Park, Prairie Water.   A funeral Mass will be celebrated Wednesday, February 7, at 1:00 pm at St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church. Private interment services will take place at Hamilton Memorial Park Cemetery.


Ann is survived by her parents, Lindsay and Greg Gotwald; sister, Samantha Gotwald; grandparents, Mary Lou and David Gotwald and Pamela and Jeffrey Weber; aunts and uncles, Bethany and Mike Barr, Beth Gotwald, Michelle and T. Drew Loftus, and Christopher and Grace Weber; and cousins, Lilly and Claire Loftus, Evan and Brock Barr, and Tim, David and Luke Gotwald. She was also adored by her two kittens, Stubby and LaLa, whom she and Samantha adopted in October 2023.


In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you honor Annie by considering a contribution to support STEM education in Westfield:
