Everyone at St. John’s will miss Elena and that quick warm smile. “May the Good Lord give rest to the soul of Thy departed servant, Elena, in a place of brightness, a place of refreshment, a place of repose, were all sickness, sorrow, and sighing have fled away.” May her Memory be Eternal” Viewing: Wednesday 2:00 PM – 6:00 PM at St. John’s Orthodox Church, 170 Lexington Ave., Passaic, New Jersey.
