      Interesting was the report of the Pannikhida for Albert Einstein's first
      wife and co-author of some of his works, Mileva Einstein-Maric, on August
      29, in Zurich.

      Her grave had been scheduled for destruction upon the expiration of the
      25-year lease on it, but miraculously was saved.

      She had been . baptized in the Serbian Church, but because there was no
      Serbian Parish in Zurich, she attended the Russian Orthodox Church there.

      She reposed in 1948, and her funeral service was performed by Protopriest
      David Chubov.

      She was quite a renowned scientist in her own right, considered to be one
      of the 100 most famous women scientists.

      Not many people know that Einstein's wife was Orthodox.
