Indianapolis, IN

Ella Lenore (Sutherlin) Wagner, 90, went home to be with the Lord, her loving husband Richard ‘Dick’ Wagner and her daughter Pamela Johnson on March 21, 2024 surrounded by her loving family. She was born August 26, 1933 in Greencastle, IN to Minerva ‘Mae’ and Oral ‘Minner’ Sutherlin. 

She attended the St. Vincent School of Nursing and upon her graduation in 1954, became a leader in the nursing community for 50 years. Ella met the love of her life, Dick, on a blind date and celebrated 63 years of marriage. She was a loving and involved wife and mother always willing to lend a helping hand. 

Her love for involvement inspired her to become a leader within the Indiana Continuity of Care Association, the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Indianapolis, Clowes Hall Women’s Committee, Indianapolis Council of Catholic Women and St. Pius X Catholic Church (A member since 1966) and countless more.  

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer's Association or the Little Sisters of the Poor
