Repose of Anna Zhukov +4/17 October 2014


Today, 4/17 October 2014, at 4 am, Anna Zhukov, parishioner of the Tabinsk Icon Community, reposed in the Lord. She was 99 years old, and a faithful member of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad to the end. As a young girl, Anna fled Russia to China with her family in the 1930’s. In the 60s the family fled China and emigrated to Australia. She remained adamantly anti-Soviet all her life. She understood the significance of the 2007 “union” of part of our Church with the Moscow Patriarchate, and took no part in it. She instead attended divine services with clergy who had remained faithful to the principles of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad. She was known and respected in the Russian community in Dandenong.
Please pray for the repose of the soul of the servant of God, Anna.

May her memory be eternal!
Вечная память!
