Stella L. Jatras is laid to rest today, June 20, 2013.
Stella Jatras reposed in the Lord on Saturday, June 15.
For the past two decades, even as many Serbs stayed silent in the face of a bigoted campaign of lies and libel – or worse, joined in the persecution of their own, hoping to gain favor with the persecutors – Stella and her family took a courageous stand for truth and justice, never wavering, never losing faith.
Stella was quite literally a daughter of Sparta – and her father’s name was Leonidas, no less. As Julia Gorin noted, she was Sparta, truly worthy of that heroic heritage. Axia!
Knowing her was a honor and privilege. With her passing, the Serbs and Greeks lose a great advocate on Earth, but gain one in Heaven.
May the Lord give her peace, and her memory be eternal.

I’ve read over the years many of her comments.
she defended Serbs more than most serbs did themselfs.
