Donation Made in Memory of Julia (Dirda) Loya
Father Christopher Burke, pastor of St. Nicholas Church, was presented with a tetrapod cross in memory of Julia (Dirda) Loya, a Lodge 57 member who passed away in 2002. The cross was donated by her daughter Mary Ann Washlock and granddaughter Natalie Washlock (Lodge 644) of Hinckley, OH plus a relative, Mary Ann Conti of Pittsburgh. This tetrapod cross was purchased from Greece and blessed by Father Jan Cizmar at St. Emilian Byzantine Catholic Church in Brunswick, OH in the Parma Diocese.
Eternal memory and blessed repose to the servant, Julia!
