Remembrance to be Held Saturday for Sarah Majoras

A gathering will be held Saturday evening in Lambertville to remember Sarah Majoras, whose body was positively identified Thursday.

Anyone touched by Sarah Majoras in her life or death is invited to remember her this weekend.

A gathering will be held Saturday, Feb. 2, at 5 p.m.

The community is invited to meet in the Lambertville Station parking lot to come together one more time in Sarah's name.

"My hope is this could be a nice night for the whole community to gather once more to celebrate an amazing person's life," wrote organizers on the Facebook page now followed by 12,500 people.

Majoras, a bartender at John and Peter's bar in New Hope and a well-loved fixture in the community, had been missing since early Saturday morning.

Wednesday, searchers pulled a woman's body from the waters of the Delaware & Raritan Canal. On Thursday, the Hunterdon County Medical Examiner's office identified the body as Majoras.

Anthony P. Kearns, the Hunterdon County Prosecutor heading the investigation, said he did not suspect foul play.

"At this time, all indications are that Sarah’s death was a tragic accident," Kearns said Thursday.

All of Majoras' personal property, including cash, identification, wallet, keys, and flashlight, were discovered along with her body, Kearns said.

An official ruling on the cause and manner of death is still pending toxicology test results, he said.

Majoras, 39, was last seen at 2 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, leaving John and Peter's after spending time there with friends on her night off.

She left on foot to walk back to North Union Street in Lambertville, where she lived. Video cameras captured Majoras crossing the New Hope-Lambertville bridge and turning onto Lambert Lane, but she never made it home.

She was reported missing on Saturday afternoon, and authorities and friends began searching for her, canvassing the town on foot, sending divers into the frigid waters of the canal and scouring the area from above by helicopter.

As word of her death spread, friends, acquaintances and even strangers expressed their condolences to Majoras' mother, Judy, and her friends.
