Taunae Beth Luke

Taunae Beth Luke

Taunae Beth Luke chose to return home on July 13, 2022.  She was born on December 7, 1952 in Richfield, Utah.  She was the first daughter and the third child in a family of nine children.  It was important for her to be independent, something she fought for all her life and achieved. She dedicated her life to family, church, and her profession. She served an LDS church mission in Dearborn, MI. Upon returning home, she worked office jobs until she returned to school and became a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant which allowed her to help hundreds of elderly people regain their independence after an accident or illness. Maybe she was so passionate about her job because of her personal drive to be independent and she found fulfillment in helping others achieve that.

Those who love her know of her selflessness and dedication to helping those around her.

May angels attend and hold her on her journey.  We send her forward with love and appreciation for all that she contributed to this existence.

Graveside services will be held on Monday, July 18, 2022 at 10 AM in the Grantsville City Cemetery. (North Section, across Clark St.)  A Visitation will be held from 8:30-9:30 prior at the Dalton-Hoopes Funeral Home, 50 W Main. Grantsville, Utah.

    Dear Luke Family,
    Taunae was an angel, although I only spent brief time with her, her gentle nature, sweet disposition and patience made an impression on me that never left. Her work, and quiet professionalism and dedication is rare, and therefore very precious. She’ll be deeply missed on this side of the veil by her family and the many patients whose lives she touched. May you take some comfort she is reunited with her loving parents and Savior.. Love, comfort, and hugs in this sad time.

    Didn’t know her very well, but hope she is happy now.

    It was neat to see Taunie, or should I say Sister Luke, faithfully coming to church regularly. During the pandemic at least the first year, she was letting me come with another elder masked up to offer the sacrement. I send my condolences to her family. Taunie will also be missed by her Winder 11th ward.

    My wife Ree and I got to know Taunae through church activities and we would visit her home at least once a month to check in with her and to see how she was doing. We enjoyed our time with her but lost touch when we moved from Millcreek to Cedar City. It was surprising and saddening to hear of her untimely passing.
