The Honorable Shatrese Marie Flowers was born on August 28, 1973, in Indianapolis, IN to the late Thomas E. Flowers, Sr. and Melissa L. Flowers.  She departed this earth and entered God’s kingdom on Sunday, November 5, 2023, at 12:19pm. 

In 1995 Judge Flowers received her bachelor’s degree in political science from DePauw University. While at DePauw was initiated and was accepted into Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc – Pi Lambda Chapter on October 18, 1992.  At her death Judge Flowers was an active member of the Indianapolis graduate chapter of Alpha Mu Omega. Judge Flowers continued her studies and graduated with her Doctor of Jurisprudence from IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law in 1998.

Judge Flowers shortly joined the Marion County Public Defender agency where she served and represented the less fortunate with the highest degree of ethical professionalism and empathy.  She later worked as an Assistant Corporation Counsel where she continued to grow her knowledge and appreciation for the law and service to the community.  In 2005 Judge Flowers continued her career as a public servant when she became a Master Commissioner for the Marion Superior Court.  Judge Flowers worked tirelessly to learn from senior colleagues and judges. 

Judge Flowers began her tenure as an elected judge on January 2, 2015.   She was no stranger to hard work.  She often worked late nights, early mornings, and countless hours on each and every case that she was responsible for.  Even on the last day of her life on Sunday morning she was reviewing a case to rule on.  Judge Flowers was known for her strong integrity, legal acumen, and unwavering empathy for all.  She served and presided over some of the most serious legal cases. 

Judge Flowers was gracious, humble, and dedicated to those who would come behind her.   She mentored and spent time with countless young people. 

Judge Flowers was not just respected but beloved by her staff and colleagues.  She treated each and every person with the utmost respect and care.  She took a personal interest in the wellbeing of each person.

Judge Flowers was a remarkable judge, but in her personal life she was so much more.  A private person that enjoyed her family and friends she gave of herself in every aspect of her life.  She was affectionately known as “Auntie”, “judgie” and “godmommy”.  Words can not express the amount of love she poured into her nieces, nephews, godchildren and children of all her friends.  They could call her at anytime for anything and she would be there. 

Judge Flowers married Kevin L. Moore on April 16, 2016.  Kevin and Judge Flowers traveled the world enjoying exotic places like Paris, Egypt, Dubai, Maldives and so many more.  Kevin spared no expense on Judge Flowers and showed her each day of his never-ending love for her.  Kevin was a dedicated caretaker for Shatrese until her departure.
