Auburn Faber Traycik

July 20, 1952-May 25, 2017

Many of you know that Auburn Traycik moved to Richmond three months ago.  Her apartment overlooks St. Alban’s, where she immediately became a valued member of our parish community.

 

As I had not seen Auburn Sunday or yesterday for Mass (she never missed an Ascension Day in my memory), I directed security to enter the apartment.  I was called back at 10 p.m. and went over to Imperial Plaza to provide identification.  Sadly, Auburn was found dead in the apartment.

 

Let us all pray for the repose of her soul.  She was a great warrior for traditional Anglicanism during her years as editor of The Christian Challenge magazine.  She sacrificed her livelihood, fortune and life for the cause of Anglican orthodoxy.   We were side-by-side in many a cause on behalf of traditional parishes and their clergy-reporter and lawyer.  Many people don’t know that she was a highly-qualified paralegal who was immensely helpful in the various bits of church property litigation we endured in years past. 

 

She also was a dear friend of mine and my family for more than 20 years, and we spent many of our holiday dinners together even after we moved to Richmond.  I am so very glad that her last months were spent at St. Alban’s, and that she attained a measure of peace here.

 

Auburn’s remains are with the medical examiner’s office at present.  I will advise as to arrangements when we get through with that business.  I pray that there will be a large crowd for her requiem.

 

 Auburn Faber Traycik would have celebrated her 65th birthday on July 20, 2017.

 

 Truly, the Lord ordereth a good woman’s going.

 

 Yours in Christ,

 

 Canon Charles H. Nalls
