On Wednesday 18 February we learned with sadness of the repose that day of our parishioner, Anastasia Szabunia (b. 29 November 1925). Her funeral was served in our church on Tuesday 24 February, after which she was laid to rest beside her late husband, Anton, at Sandgate Cemetery. Anastasia and Anton had a long association with our parish, having arrived in Australia in August 1949 aboard MV Fairsea together with the ever-memorable Archpriest John Lupish and his family. She is survived by four daughters and a son – Lucy, Olga, Valentina, Lydia and Anatoly – and by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, to whom we offer sincere condolences. May God grant rest to His newly-departed handmaiden!
