Ann Elizabeth (Mullins) Tindall, 84, formerly of Peoria, and Largo, FL, died on Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2024, at Library Terrace Assisted Living.

A visitation will be held at Ware’s Grove Lutheran Church in Butler on Saturday, March 16, 2024, from 9 to 10 a.m. with funeral services to follow immediately. Burial will be at the Ware’s Grove Cemetery. 

Mrs. Tindall was born in DeKalb on Jan. 22, 1940, to the late Alvin and Mary (Ware) Mullins. She married Gary W. Tindall on Dec. 27, 1970 in Pekin. He preceded her in death on Aug. 10, 2001.

Mrs. Tindall was a 1958 graduate of Hillsboro High School.  She spent her college years on the Illinois campus of Carthage College.  She graduated in 1962 and was inducted into the Carthage Athletic Hall of Fame as a charter member in the fall of 1984. Countless fans remember Ann as the standout catcher for the famed Pekin Lettes softball team. Mrs. Tindall was inducted into the Greater Peoria Sports Hall of Fame both individually and as a part of the 1965 Lettes team.  Mrs. Tindall taught physical education and health at Peoria High School from 1962 until her retirement in 1993.  After a short time as snowbirds, the Tindalls settled at Palm Hill Country Club in Largo, FL to enjoy their retirement years.  While in Florida, Mrs. Tindall forged many friendships and frequently volunteered her time both at Palm Hill and with Suncoast Hospice. Her Florida home became a popular vacation destination for family and friends over the years. 

Mrs. Tindall was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Peoria and Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Seminole, FL.  She had a love of music and was a member of the choir at both churches.

For all of her interests, Mrs. Tindall had no love greater than that of her family.
