Stella L. Jatras is laid to rest today, June 20, 2013.

From Gray Falcon:

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.
