St. Anna & the Theotokos

This icon was commissioned in memory of:

  • My maternal grandmother, Gertrude Barbara Schuck Pfeiffer
  • My paternal grandmother, Rose Giacomucci Pietropolo
  • My mother, Margaret Mary Pfeiffer Pietropolo

It was written by the hand of Alexandra.

Its ethereal beauty is so sublime, it has left me speechless.  I could just cry.

    Denise, if you click on the name “Alexandra” it will take you to her website. Her civil name is Sandra June Hofstead. She has spent a good deal of time studying and her shows it.

    Thank you all for your kind words. I am so excited and can’t wait to receive this icon.
