Anna was a kind and gentle soul. Her soft skills and qualities, her big Russian heart made her such an exquisite person.
She always had time for you: for a kind word, for showing understanding, for sharing her knowledge and her experience.
Some recent, tragic events were grey clouds for her joie de vivre. However, she continued to support Deaf and interpreters communities in her home country and worldwide in her beautiful way.
I have known Anna since early 90’s within WFD and more recently within WASLI & efsli. The last time we spoke, a few months ago, we warmly wished to each other to catch up soon. What happened is so hard to accept, dear Anna. I will keep you in my heart and soul.
Анна, спасибо. Мне тебя не хватает.
Lots of love, Marinella
