Juanita L. “Nita” (Silvey) Louzon, 71, of Indianapolis passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 at Franciscan Health Indianapolis while surrounded by her family. She was born in Indianapolis on April 27, 1949 to Charles Gorman and Barbara (Russell) Silvey.
Nita graduated from Arsenal Technical High School and attended Indiana University where she attained both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s Degree. She worked for Citizens Gas and retired after 26 years of service. Nita became a parishioner of Holy Name Catholic Church in 1978.
Nita had a heart for service. She is the former Director of Perry Senior Citizens Services, was involved with fundraising efforts with the United Way, was a member of Kiwanis Club of Indianapolis and spent many years as a volunteer with the Eiteljorg Museum and Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Indianapolis where she mentored many women.
NIta had a passion for traveling and especially enjoyed camping with her family. Memories of magical Disney trips will be forever cherished by her family. She also enjoyed genealogy and studying the history of religion. Above all, though, Nita’s joy was spending time with her grandchildren.
Nita is survived by her loving husband of 42 years, Glenn; two daughters, Laura (Kevin) Winton of Indianapolis and Linda (Tad) Sperka of Brownsburg; two brothers Charles (Letha) Silvey of Colorado Springs, CO and Robert Silvey of Indianapolis; one sister, Beth (Mike) Winkler of Naperville, IL; and five grandchildren, Rose (Wesley) Gilmore, Eli WIlliams, Gabe Williams, Alice Sperka and Emeryk Sperka. Her parents-in-law, James and Lois Louzon, also survive as do many loving extended family members and her dearest friend, Margie Leive.
She is preceded in death by her parents; her step-father, Robert Silvey; and her brother, Alllen Silvey.
A Funeral Mass will be held at Noon on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 at Holy Name Catholic Church (89 N 17th Ave, Beech Grove, IN 46107). Friends may call from 10:00am until the time of Mass. Social distancing will be observed and face coverings will be required per the Governor’s Executive Order.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Riley Hospital Food Pantry (705 Riley Hospital Drive , Indianapolis , IN 46202) or to the Indianapolis Humane Society.

I’m so sorry to hear of Nita’s passing. She was a friend when I first came to Indy and showed me genuine friendship and kindness.

Your family is in my prayers at this difficult time of sorrow. I morn with you.
Nita is resting now in God’s arms!
I was so saddened to hear of Nita’s passing. We were good friends for many years but lost touch a number of years ago. Rarely ever was she without a smile. I loved and remember distinctly her laughter. We always had fun, and never a dull moment when you were in her company. Heaven has gained a special Angel. Prayers for her family, she loved you all so very much.
I am so sorry to hear of Nita’s sudden passing. We worked together in HR but we had not talked in years. She certainly valued people and their friendships and potential. She did love to help others. I know all of her friends and family will miss her dearly! You will all be in my prayers as you are comforted with the peace that you know she is experiencing and the promise that we will see her again. Jan Lane
My most sincerest condolences for the family, Glenn. I know she will be
missed, by not only the immediate family & extended families, but by many friends that cherished
her friendship. May you all find peace in knowing Nita
will be welcome with open arms by God and all family that preceded her.
My love to all of you❤️❤️
Nita was a good friend of mine. We both worked at the Citizens Gas. She was always friendly to everyone, always had a smile. I also bowled with Nita & her Mom Sylvia.
My prayers go out to her family in their time of sorrow. 🙏🏻
My condolences to everyone with Nita’s passing, she was a very sweet and warm person, always had a big smile on her face when I’ve seen her at family events-
Jack and I are so sorry for your loss. We loved Nita. She was always the first to volunteer to help and was so kind. During Jack’s first campaign for state senate, she use to stop by my office and bring me tea because she thought I was working too many hours. Nita and I talked about getting together for coffee after all the COVID restrictions ended. We will certainly miss her!
