Preoteasa Juliana Marinescu, 85, beloved wife of the late Archpriest Mircea Marinescu, fell asleep in the Lord on April 23, 2018.
Born in Banat, Romania in 1933, she attended Liceul de Fete “Carmen Sylva” in Timisoara. After her husband’s ordination, they served the city’s cathedral. In the 1960s, they arrived in the United States and served parishes in Ohio, Minnesota, Indiana and Rhode Island. For 22 years, they served the Descent of the Holy Spirit Church, Elkins Park, PA. In addition to instilling in her family a strong sense of “faith, achievement, purpose, duty, public service, and voluntarism,” Preoteasa Juliana was active in many ministries on the parish level.
Preoteasa Juliana is survived by her two daughters, Rodica [Aristotle] and Monica [John], and three grandchildren, Nina, Martin, and Roger.
May Preoteasa Juliana’s memory be eternal!
