Matushka Juliana Schmemann, the widow of Fr. Alexander Schmemann, the prominent OCA theologian and dean of St. Vladimir’s Seminary, reposed on January 29 in Crestwood Village, NY.

Archpriest John Tkachuk announced the repose of his ninety-four year old mother-in-law on his Facebook page.

Juliana Sergeevna Schmemann (nee Osorgin) was born on October 6, 1923 in Bade-Baden, Germany. Her grandfather was Archpriest Michael Osorgin (1861—1939) who ministered to Russian exiles at the home church of Sts. Constantine and Helen in Clamart, near Paris.

Juliana and her family moved to Clamart around 1926, graduating from the College of St. Mary in Neuilly and La Sorbonne University.

She married Alexander Schmemann (1921—1983) in 1943, who became a priest in 1946. They moved to the US in 1951 and Fr. Schmemann moved to the jurisdiction of the American Metropolita (later titled the Orthodox Church in America). He taught at St. Vladimir’s Seminary from 1951 until his repose, serving as dean from 1962 until his repose.

Matushka Juliana taught French and Russian in various schools in New York, and wrote the popular book My Life with Fr. Alexander.
