Our long-time Parishioner Vera Koretz passed away

We announce with sorrow that our long-time parishioner Vera Koretz has fallen asleep in the Lord on December 24, 2018.

Vera was a very active member of St. George parish family. She was one of the oldest parishioners who were raised in St. George Church and among those few of them who remained faithful to the Parish. For a long time she attended our temple, participated in the liturgical and spiritual life of our community, helped a lot in maintaining the church’s beauty and cleanness, and assisted in many parish activities. For a number of years she fulfilled the duties of the parish Treasurer.
Unfortunately, during the last years Vera was suffering from an illness and was not attending our church, so we missed her at our services and coffee hours.
Lately Vera became very ill and was hospitalized. Our Rector, Archpriest Igor Tarasov and our Warden, Olga Roussanow visited her in the hospital last Sunday. At that time she received the Sacrament of the Holy Unction. On the next day she passed away.

Our Parish expressed sincere condolences to the Koretz family.
Vera will be remembered as a nice, cheerful, hard-working person and a devout member of our church.

Please, offer your prayers for the repose of her soul!
