Obituary of Ayse Kutlu

Ayse Louise Kutlu, 38, of Indianapolis, passed away on Friday, June 9, 2017 at IU Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis. She was born on May 8, 1979 to Linda (Thomas) Neal and Hikmet Kutlu in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Ayse was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in November of 2016.  She fought a heroic battle under the amazing care of IU Simon Cancer Center led by Dr. Larry Cripe.  Our family would like to thank everyone at IU Simon for their tremendous care and support through this journey alongside all the love and support from family and friends.

Ayse will always be remembered for her compassion of others and for her love and care of children.   She was deeply passionate about the well-being of animals and actively volunteered at the Humane Society.  Ayse enjoyed travel with friends and family, ocean views, good humor, and an occasional great movie. 

In addition to her parents, she is survived by her brother, Hakan Kutlu; grandmother, Vera Thomas; uncle, Ron Thomas; aunts, Laura Chambers, Munevver Cogalmis, Fatma Cogalmis, Selvinaz Kutlu, Emine Kecoglu, Gunay Kutlu, Semra Kutlu, Karan Romaine, Becky Lockman; and cousins.  Ayse was preceded in death by her grandparents, Suleyman and Sakine Kutlu, and Gerald Thomas.
