Sister Sally Furay peacefully passed away on Saturday, January 10, 2015.
Sister Sally was a founding board member of the Barat Education Foundation. She served on the Barat College board of directors. Since the Foundation’s launch in 2000, she has provided our board and staff her wisdom, counsel, and love. Our programs reflect her values: personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom, deep respect for intellectual values; an active spirituality; a social awareness which impels to action and the building of community as a value. Sister Sally provided our board and staff her wisdom which is reflected in the mission, vision and goals of the Foundation.
We at the Foundation will sorely miss her and we ask forgiveness of e e cummings as we adapt his verse in our farewell to Sally:
We carry your heart (Sally) with us (we carry it in our hearts) we are never without it (anywhere we go you go… and whatever is done by only us is your doing… we carry your heart Sally (we carry it in our hearts)
