"The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away; Blessed be the name of the Lord".  Job 1:21

With deep sorrow, the Luke, McMillan, Maximore and Gray families announce the home-going of Ms. Leah A. Luke.  This sad event occurred on Sunday, April 29, 2018 at her home in Charlotte, North Carolina.  

Leah was born to the union of Ms. Rachel McMillan and Mr. Henry Luke.  She was predeceased by both parents, her aunt Mrs. Florence Luke King, her sister Mrs. Hilda Luke Collins and her brother Mr. Cecil Buster Luke. 

She is survived by her sister Mrs. Esther Luke Daniels, and her only surviving relative of the McMillan family Mr. Charles Roberts.  She will also be missed by her many nieces, nephews, cousins, and close and dear friends in the United States and Liberia.  

May her soul rest in perfect peace.
