Prayers are requested for Salem Ghareeb, who recently reposed at age 90. He is survived by his wife Nabiha Ghareeb and children, Issam (Carol), Michel (Gail), Nouhad (Fr. George) Shalhoub, George (Nabelah) and Elias, ten grandchildren, twelve great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
Salem’s greatest virtue was his strong faith in Christ and His Holy Church. He was a great father and a wonderful and loving grandfather. He was the living patriarch of the Ghareeb family. A life time member of St. George Cathedral, Salem was a great painter, enjoyed gardening, reading and woodworking.
He will be greatly missed.
