With sadness, but also with thanks to God for a life well lived, we note the falling asleep in the Lord of Mother Nektaria, 72, on Aug. 9, 2023. Mother lived the last 27 years of her monastic life at St. Paul Skete, an Antiochian monastic community in Grand Junction, Tenn.

Mother Nektaria entered the monastic life at age 36 in 1987 at Orthodox Monastery of the Transfiguration in Elwood City, Penn. after 10 years of teaching high school English. She was tonsured as a nun in 1993 at Dormition of the Mother of God Orthodox Monastery in Rives Junction, Mich.
