Indianapolis, IN

Sister Ella J. Luke

Mother, Friend and Sister 1947-2021

Our dear Ella Braddock was born to parents, Matthew and V’ella Braddock in Faulkner, Mississippi on September 12, 1947, along with two siblings, Robert Braddock of Shannon, MS and Elizabeth Braddock of Indianapolis, IN. Later in the 1960s Ella ventured to Chicago, IL where she met Wilburt Luke, their union led to three offspring: Kenneth Luke of Orlando, FL, Curtis Luke and Tommy Luke both of Indianapolis, IN. Ella and Wilburt are grandparents to: Kenneth Luke Jr., Jeremy Luke, Kristopher Luke, Natasha Mason, Kimani Luke, Devont’e Luke, Elaysha Luke, De’asia Clinton, Aaron Payne, Tajnise Luke, Tommy Camble, Tyson Luke, Nakyra Luke and Landon Martin.

Our Sister Luke turned her life around in 1974, she began studying the Bible with Jehovah’s Witnesses and she symbolized her dedication by water baptism in January of 1975. Ella took seriously the command given at Matthew 28:19 to go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations; as anyone coming into her presence that was not serving Jehovah was going to know something about Jehovah God when they left. Ella ran her own self-made cleaning service for more than 25 years which supported many full-time pioneers from various congregations and that also included preaching to a lot of her clients that she serviced.

Our dear Sister Luke was 73 at the time she went to sleep on April 1, 2021. She happily served at five congregations in Indianapolis: Grandview, Meridian, Riverside, Arlington Heights and East Lawrence. Sister Luke served as a full-time pioneer, teaching and disciple making work.

All will miss her infectious laughter and warm friendly greeting and smile. She is at rest now which means no more suffering and no more pain.

We look forward to the hour when all those in the memorial tombs will hear His voice and come out… John 5:28

Virtual service will be held on Friday, April 16, 2021 at 7pm on Zoom:
