A woman of courage and passion. A devoted wife, loving mother and grandmother. A dedicated caregiver who has selflessly served her patients.

A simple, humble and very hardworking father & husband who has left his family behind with wonderful memories to cherish forever. Special thanks to the caretakers.

She rose to the challenges life threw her way steadfastly with what little she had. She never saw a lack of education and finance as a barrier. Instead, she focused on her positive attributes such as her excellent cooking and entrepreneurship skills to support her family in the best way she could. She was a compassionate gutsy person, a devoted daughter and a kind, loving mom to us.

We sincerely thank everyone for their condolences, prayers, assistance, love and support during this difficult time.

Our father/mother was our pillar of strength, a great soul who has done everything for us.

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of (name), a beloved great grandmother, grandmother, mother, sister and friend, who passed away on (name). She lived a full and vibrant life in which she was loved and adored by everyone around her. She was a devoted and loving lady, always putting the needs of her family before her own. Being fiercely protective, nothing made her happier than seeing them grow and thrive. Her children were the center of her universe, and she loved them unconditionally, as they did in return. Known for her legendary meals, filling her kitchen with the aroma of spices and love.

Mata Ji leaves behind a legacy of love and devotion. She is survived by her four children, two sons and two daughters, and her ten grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Her presence will be deeply missed, but her spirit will live on in the hearts of all those who knew and loved her.

Her life was a blessing, her memory a precious treasure, xxx is loved beyond words, missed beyond measure, forever dancing in our hearts.

(name) was renowned for her lack of patience, not holding back her opinion and a knack for telling it like it is. We miss her wit, her charm and her big heart. The heart that served her so well in this world ultimately failed her at far too young an age.

We ask that in memory of xxx and her one year anniversary that you do something for someone less fortunate than yourself. Feed the hungry, help an animal or simply admire something in nature.

You will always be part of us in our hearts and our prayers, we will miss you and fondly remember you in every moment of our life, Maa Ji ♥️

“Those we love don’t go away, they sit beside us every day.”

Goodbye to a great mother, grandmother and aunt. Your shining personality will live on and be cherished in our hearts forever. Your smile, laughter, admonishment will be sorely missed and remembered.

You will be dearly missed by your family, relatives and friends. We love you so much. You will forever remain in our hearts.

(name), lovingly known as (name), is dearly missed by family and friends. Hailing from (place), Mata Ji was nothing less than a pillar and strength of the family. And it was a big, loving family of which consisted of 19 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. No words can describe how much we miss you & how empty our life is without you. You will always be remembered and remain in our hearts. Forever will be loved and cherished by her Sons, Daughters, Daughters-in-law, Sons-in-law, Grandchildren, Great Grandchildren, Siblings, a Host of Relatives & Great Friends. She may have been gone, but her memories are etched deep in our minds.

“What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget”

Our community will always remember her for the sumptuous food she made with love for all.
A heart so large, always giving, you lived for all, now let heaven live for you.

Exceptional Dad who was kind and gentle. Had great pride and passion in the work he did and took great care of his family.

Please treat this as a personal invitation. Your presence will be appreciated.

(name) is a super fan of (something) . Will never be forgotten for his wonderful smile, heartfelt laughter and will always be loved dearly by his sisters, brothers, relatives and friends.


Our family humbly invites you to join us for a special prayer gathering as we come together to remember and honour the life of our beloved xxxx. His/Her presence in our lives was a blessing, and as we gather in his/her memory, we find strength and solace in our shared love and cherished memories.
