SS. Peter & Paul Orthodox Church

IN MEMORY

OF OUR BELOVED "FIRST LADY" GEORGETTE MATYCHAK WHO WENT TO BE WITH OUR LORD ON MAY 19, 2019

WE MISS YOU GREATLY!

In Georgette's memory we are dedicating the Icon of Christ with the Children, very fitting since she dedicated her entire life to educating and caring for our future generations. She loved children and always believed in making their lives better. Just as Jesus commanded the Disciples, "Don't stop the children from coming to me! Unless ye become as a little child you shall not enter into the kingdom of God." 

Georgette kept this following saying on her desk and read it every day; it became her motto: "One hundred years from now it won't matter what kind of house I lived in or how much money I had, nor what clothes I wore, but the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child." We all know how many lives she influenced by the enormity of visitors to her Viewing prior to her funeral. Over 400 children, parents, and friends filed through for over 4 hours to express their thoughts and love. She was a pillar in both church and community. One touching moment was when one of her students climbed on my lap in the funeral home and cried her eyes out saying, "I already miss her so much!" She was only 4 years old. No wonder Christ loved the children so much, they are so kind and loving.

We will post photos of the Icon blessing and of the Icon itself.

Love,

Fr Andrew
