Stopping in to let all of you know the arrangements for sweet Sara.
The wake (visitation) will take place on Tuesday evening, September 27th, from 5-8 p.m. at St. Cecilia Catholic Church in Algona, IA.
The funeral will also be at St. Cecilia's at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon, September 28th, in Algona, IA.
There will be a memorial service on Thursday, September 29th, at St. Stephens Catholic Church in Cedar Falls, IA at 6:30 p.m.
The family is exploring the feasibility of doing a webcast of the visitation/service. I'll post further details as they become available.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
Algona is a small community, but as of this posting, rooms are available at Sisters Inn and Burr Oak Motel. West Bend, IA also has a few hotels and is in close proximity to Algona.

Memorial Contributions/In Lieu of Flowers:
Sara was quite passionate about World Vision, Relay for Life, and St. Stephens Catholic Church in Cedar Falls, IA. In lieu of flowers, she suggested that you purchase books and donate them to an organization close to your heart.
