Memorial Service for Sylvia Gift Nabukeera

  • Date: Thursday, July 28, 2011
  • Time: 11:00 am
  • Location: Center for Faith and Life—Recital Hall

A prayer service in remembrance of Sylvia Gift Nabukeera will be held
Thursday, July 28, 11 a.m. in the Recital Hall of the Luther Center
for Faith and Life.

Sylvia, age 25, a 2010 graduate of Luther, died June 24 in Nairobi,
Kenya. The memorial service at Luther is scheduled to coincide with
the scheduled funeral service for Sylvia in her home country of
Uganda.

As the Luther community grieves Sylvia's death we are also offering
support for her family. The family is in need of immediate financial
assistance to pay the costs of bringing her body home for burial. They
also face ongoing financial challenges because Sylvia was helping
siblings with education and living expenses.

To provide financial assistance to the family, contact Luther College
Ministries (telephone 563-387-1040, e-mail ministry@luther.edu), or
Luther Diversity Center (telephone 563-387-1014, e-mail
brownewi@luther.edu).

Notes or cards to the family may also be dropped off at either office
and will be sent to the family.
