Stavrophore nun Amvrosia reposed in the Lord on March 6, 2013, in Our Lady of Kazan Skete in Santa Rosa, CA. She was born August 29, 1939, in the city of Kazan in Russia, was baptized in Moscow in 1976, and became a novice in the Skete in Santa Rosa in March 2002. His Eminence, Archbishop Benjamin, tonsured her into the small schema on March 20, 2010, naming her after St. Ambrose of Optina.
Her funeral is planned to be served at the Skete on Monday, March 11, immediately followed by burial in Oakmound Cemetery in Healdsburg, CA, God willing. The Skete sisterhood wishes to express deepest thanks for the great blessing of the Church's holy prayers offered for Mother Amvrosia throughout her past 3-year battle with cancer, and now for her repose. Memory Eternal.
