On Thursday 10 December we learned with sadness of the repose that day of our parishioner, Natalia Ivanovna Tarasenko (b. 15 March 1918 in Kuldja, China). Her funeral was served in our church on Tuesday 15 December, after which she was laid to rest beside her late husband, Ivan Trofimovich, at Sandgate Cemetery. Natalia had a long association with our parish and with the Russian Orthodox Church of the Theophany (Moscow Patriarchate) in Mayfield. She is survived by three daughters and two sons – Raisa, Nickolay, Tatiana, Peter, and Nadejda – and by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, to whom we offer our condolences. May God grant rest to His newly-departed handmaiden!
