Rome Obituary

RIP our dear friend, Evgenia Michajlovna, who fell asleep in the Lord aged 93. With a warm smile and a twinkle in her eye she never failed to give me a nod as I entered the shadows of the Russicum on dark winter nights for Sunday Vespers. And she never minded me leaving early to catch my train at nearby Termini. I guess she was pleased to have at least one other person seated in the church. May her memory be eternal. And may her chair be reserved in memoriam.


Russicum friends, in the early hours of July 11, our beloved Evgenia Michajlovna, fell asleep in the Lord, at the age of 93. Since the Russicum is closed, and there is no choir, the funeral will take place on Thursday at the Church of SS. Antonio e Annibale Maria in Piazza Asti at 11 a.m., after which she will be interred with her relatives at the so-called Protestant Cemetery of Rome. Вѣчнаѧ памѧть!

Amici del Russicum, nelle prime ore del 11 luglio, la nostra amata Evgenia Michajlovna si è addormentata nel Signore, all età di 93. Siccome il Russicum è chiuso in questo periodo, e siamo senza coro, i funerali si terranno giovedì alla chiesa dei SS. Antonio e Annibale Maria in Piazza Asti alle 11, dopodichè, sarà sepolta con i suoi parenti nel cimitero acattolico di Roma (al Piramide.) Вѣчнаѧ памѧть!
