A tribute to our late Sister from SI St Petersburg.
Dr Nelli Fedrova—SI St Petersburg
Died 27th June 2012
Nellis death has left us saddened and yet we can be thankful for having known her.
Our friendship started some 16 years ago and during that time Nelli has given us great insight into the lives led by many professional women in St Petersburg.
As a Soroptimist she never demurred in her desire to serve others. She had a generosity of spirit, a genuine interest in all those that she met, and a great love and considerable knowledge of the culture and history of her city and took great joy in sharing that with the many Soroptimist visitors from other countries.
Nelli’s visit with Tatyana to Bangor for our 60th anniversary celebrations was a time that she often spoke about. How she enjoyed meeting the club members and she did remember everyone by name.
President Marina has written of Nelli—Talented, bright, unique- a role model for us- an example to follow- nobody can replace her. And this sums up a wonderful woman that we have had the privilege of knowing and calling dear friend.
