Selma I. Luther

July 16, 1928 ~ June 09, 2023


Selma I. Luther, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away on June 9th at the age of 94.

She was born in Rockmart, Georgia on July 16th, 1928 to Inez and John Morris, who moved to Vero Beach in 1934.

Selma was preceded in death by her parents, her sister, Florene Brooks, her brother, Dwayne Morris, her husband, William M. (Bill) Luther, and her sons, Jim and Joe.

Survivors include her brother, Wayne Morris; children, John (Nancy), Jeff (Shelley), Jerre (Margie), and Jana Hogan (Mike); grandchildren, Kristin Lockwood (Darin), Lindsay Brandenburg (Jackson), Jennifer Langston, William Luther (Susie), Katie Benson (Kell), and Jenna Hogan, and eleven great grandchildren, Alice Grace, Emma, Will, Kase, Jorie, Jasper, Charlie, Grace, Evan, Liam, and Jackson.
Selma attended Vero Beach High School and married Bill shortly after he returned from the war in 1946.  They were married for 63 years and raised six children together. Selma was a homemaker who devoted her life to her family and her faith.

She was a member of the Community Church and a generous and compassionate person who always helped those in need. Selma never met a stranger and made friends everywhere she went.  She was a strong and resilient woman who faced challenge with grace and courage. She loved her family deeply and was always there for them.


In place of flowers, Selma would want everyone to do a special act of kindness and give to the charity of their choice.

This is a sad day to read of Selma’s passing. A fair share of memories flashed by. A lot of laughter, giggles in the salon where I worked, with Selma as a client. You will be missed a thousand times over. Please, to the Luther Family, accept my deepest condolences and prayers. I’ll be watching for a new Cardinal in my flock in the morning.
May God bless each of you, give you strength to get through the days ahead.

Another one of Vero’s great matriarchs has completed her service on Earth and now joins the other Angels in God’s Heavenly realm. Selma’s beautiful smile will forever be etched into the minds and hearts of her family and friends. I extend my condolences to the entire Luther family during this difficult time.

My deepest sympathies go out to the entire Luther family. She was a long time member of this community, a “Veroite”. Hold on to your special memories of this very nice lady. May she rest in peace.

I’m saddened to hear of Selma’s passing. She was a familiar face whenever I delivered at Regency. Often I would find her sitting with Jane near the elevators in the evening when I was making my rounds. She always had a story to tell and quite a few of them involved her daughter, Jana. May the family find peace during this difficult time.

Selma was loved and respected by all who met her. Both her and Bill were great friends and neighbors to both Randy and me for many years. She will be thought of always and greatly missed.
My prayers for the family and peace during this time of grief.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
