Memory Eternal! + Sarah Metry Najjar

Memory Eternal! 

Sarah Metry Najjar, 43, passed away Wednesday morning, August 20, 2014.  A lifelong member of St. Michael's Orthodox Church in Louisville, KY,  Sarah was very involved in the Fellowship of St. John the Divine on the local, diocesan and national levels.

Sarah attended Sacred Heart Model School and Collegiate High School. Her love of the theatre was nursed at Walden Theatre from the age of 6, and blossomed at New York University at the Tisch School of Arts. After graduating from NYU, Sarah returned to Louisville to work for Walden and eventually as a corporate fund raiser for Fund for the Arts. After a presentation for Fund for the Arts, she was offered a position at U.S. Bank. She completed her MBA at Bellarmine University, and worked as a branch manager until marriage. 

Sarah married in 2002, and in the same year, fulfilled an enduring desire to become a teacher.
