Artemesia Sangester

Artemesia Sangester, known by all her family and friends as ART,  was an only child who married her high school sweetheart.

She was a devoted mother of four children and eight grandchildren who truly believed that her core values of Faith, Family, and Education were essential in one’s personal growth. 

Art worked as a Social Worker in various capacities in Louisville, KY, for over 40 years.  She was a faithful member of her church and loved to sing in the choir and travel worldwide.  Art had a fantastic way of never meeting a stranger, and she always had a positive attitude and scripture to share with you.

After being diagnosed with Stage 3 Cancer, Art never lost her faith in God.  And the great outlook on life and happiness that she shared with everyone she knew somehow seemed more prominent than ever. 

She was always an optimist and believed that all things happen for a reason. As cancer returned for the third time, she thought that you should never question the obstacles God puts before you. Instead, look at them as a personal challenge and a journey and never give up.

Art was a tiny woman in stature but larger than life in her faith, wisdom, education, and hard work.  But after a  long courageous battle of over four years, on September 19, 2020, she went on to rest peacefully among the angels.

We all genuinely miss her tenacity, never-give-up attitude, wise and kind words, and love for living life to the fullest!

The Art Sangester Scholarship will be awarded to those individuals who share her same optimistic spirit, hard work, willingness to make a difference, and unwavering love for life.
