I noticed you have listed Abbess Rufina of Harbin and Shanghai (1937). I got information from a ROCOR priest that she is not a saint, but is prayed for everyday in San Francisco, Jordanville, and probably the Synod Cathedral also, and in Jerusalem.

St John Maximovich when sending the nuns who were under Abbess Rufina over to San Francisco from China said in a letter stating, "I am sending you nuns who do not recognize the Church authority (i.e., obedience to the bishop)." ( It is in the Dioceses' archives.)
