Irina's Memorial Gift to St. Jude's

On Sunday, June 18th, 2017 the world lost the kindest, warmest, loving woman who I had the privilege to call my mother - Irina.  She was universally adored by all whose lives she touched and who were lucky enough to know her.  Her giving nature, smile, charm, genuine predisposition and wit made everyone in her presence feel special. She loved her home - St. Petersburg.  She raised many amazing children over the numerous years of running her day care - renowned for her tender care of the little ones as each one was her own -  imparting her kindness and wisdom.  On behalf of our family, I want to thank each and every one of you who have reached out this week.  Your support and kindest words about my mother mean the world to us and to her.  Thank you for your many, many years for friendship.  Thank you for making her smile and laugh.  Thank you for helping her in her journey.  And, thank you for impacting her life for the better.

My mother was always very proud to support St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.  In leu of flowers, if you would like to honor her memory and make a lasting impact, we have set up this page where you an make a donation in her memory which I will provide to St. Jude’s so she can continue to make an impact in childrens’ lives.

Again, thank you so much for all your kind sentiments.  And please, keep her in your hearts and remember her as the wonderful, kind, giving woman she was.
