Seems an inscription "Nun Maria" was added to the tombstone.

Yes the words that written there are exactly "Nun Maria".Very interesting, I'd never knew that on her grave she was described as nun Maria.
Here the photos of the Monastery where Vyrubova became nun, and island itself(made by me). Monastery is called Valaam Man Monastery(Orthodox) and situated on Valaam Island just in the center of the Lake Ladoga. This island is reachable only by water. Monastery exist nowadays and have a big number of monks. The island itself is very beautiful, carved with spruces, rocks and stones. Typical Finnish, Swedish or Northern Russian landscape.
The only thing that I can't understand is how Vyrubova became nun there? Because this Monastery is exclusively man Monastery(only monks, no nuns). Maybe someone can answer this question?

Thanks for the compliment Snegurochka.
I'd found another very interesting fact about Vyrobova. She was thoroughly familiar with Mannerheim.
In 1940, when Vyborg was transfered to the Soviet union, she going to Finland and live temporarily near the town Kiorio. Vyrubuva was afraid and wrote a letter to Mannerheim.
At her request, Marshal Mannerheim, wrote the following letter:
   "Over thirty(!) years I am familiar with Mrs. Anna Taneyeva, with her parents and respected by many members of their family, and I ask that all those who will be in contact with the Mrs. Taneeva - much to suffered woman, moreover, became disabled after train accident - would be with her sympathetically and with understanding."
    Helsinki. June 11, 1940. Military Marshal Mannerheim.

The letter reassured and gave a sense of security to Anna Vyrubova.

Autumn 1939 when the so called "winter war" between Finland and the Soviet Union started, Anna Taneeva fled to Sweden. She returned to Finland a year later and lived for some time in Haminanlahti Manor, near to Kuopio (not Kiorio!).
It is too much to say, that she was "thoroughly" familiar. They have met several times (more than twenty years earlier!), but were not that familiar. In the end Mannerheim did not do much to help Anna Taneeva in later years, when she even asked for help.

I will not argue, I'm not a such big expert of Anna Vyrubova.
At the same time, I think that Mannerheim had a lot of businesses and concerns, in addition to Anna Vyrubova. He cared more about Finland:). Results of his care is on our eyes. And the fact that he helped her even in this way, telling us a lot about him.

From what I read, Nicola, Anya knew Georgy,  a monk at Valaam who had been the confessor to Grand Duke Nicholas Nicholaevich.  Because of his closeness to the imperial family,  he "secretly" made her a nun in 1919.

Snegurochka, thank you very much. Now I can understand this. I've always kept thinking of how she became a nun in the Man Monastery?! Only Anna Vyrubova was able to do it:)
  You are such an experts of Anna Vyrubova. My respect to you.

Here are some shared by AP members in the past:



(In Vyrubova's time, I believe the house was cream-colored)


And some vintage shots:

Did Anna followed IF in their holidays ( to Crimeia or to other places in Russia)?

And how does she spent her days? Does she was always with IF in Alexander Palace?

And finally does she had an appartement in St. petersburg or just that house in Tsarskoye Selo?

I know that are many questions but i love to  know this ..
