Family and friends of Brisbane woman Sara Zelenak will say their final farewell at a private funeral service today.

The 21 year old was tragically killed in the London Bridge terror attack, she had been living in London and working as an au pair.

The service will be held at her former school Moreton Bay College this morning.


Ms Zelenak and Adelaide nurse Kirsty Boden died when three terrorists ploughed into pedestrians on London Bridge and stabbed people in nearby Borough Market earlier this month.

Ms Zelenak’s aunt Tara wrote on Facebook that Sara was “the most beautiful, happy, positive young lady with so much to live for”.

“Her heart and spirit will live on in all of us.”

The Moreton Bay College community also honoured its former student in a statement saying “this is the first time our college community has been touched by an act of terrorism and our hearts are broken by the loss of Sara.”

“Sara was a positive, popular student who always had a smile on her face. She embodied the values of Moreton Bay College and was adored by her peers and staff.”

Ms Boden will be farewelled in her home town of Loxton in South Australia on Monday.
