At Aaron-Ruben-Nelson Mortuary the community’s safety is of paramount concern. We will be following the guidelines set forth by the Government with regards to social gatherings.

At this time, funeral services will be limited to immediate family only. Some clergy have indicated they will officiate at graveside services only. We will update you with the current information we have at the arrangement conference, as this is a rapidly changing situation. 

We offer streaming services, at no additional charge, so that all extended family, friends and colleagues may share in this special memorial of your loved one.

Aaron-Ruben-Nelson Mortuary was founded in 1935 in downtown Indianapolis and purchased by Max Nelson, of blessed memory, in 1964. Max passed away in May of 2019. Since 1991, Max’s daughter, Jennifer Nelson Williams, has served in various capacities and is now the president and CEO of the organization. She and her staff pledge to continue the unparalleled service that has been a benchmark of the funeral home since its founding.
