On August 8, 2012 thirty friends and former colleagues gathered at Chaminade’s Sullivan Library to celebrate the life of Emeritus Professor Sarah K. Vann. Dr. Vann had requested a cocktail party rather than a memorial service, and there was music, champagne and martinis, elegant food, photos, and heartfelt tributes to her sparkling personality and joie de vivre. She will be missed
Photos were taken by Diane Nahl of friends gathered for the event.
