Gurbachan Kaur Bains
Gurbachan Kaur Bains (Beji) peacefully passed away on April 11, 2016, surrounded by the love of her family. Beji was born on March 24, 1928 to Ganga Singh Bhatti & Bishan Kaur Bhatti in Bahrain, Punjab.

Beji was one of nine siblings and spent her early days in Punjab, where she later married Amrik Singh Bains of Mahilpur, Punjab. They then moved to Multan, Pakistan to join her parents and siblings and eventually began farming. The turmoil during the partition of 1947, lead them back to Sadhowal, Punjab, where she and her husband raised their six children. In 1970, Beji and her eldest son came to California with the help of her brother Mahenga Singh Bhatti. She was joined by the rest of her family in 1973 where they began their lives in District 10, Marysville. Beji was a homemaker and a very hard worker. In her recent days, she lovingly helped to raise all of her grandkids. She taught everyone the importance of family and created a bond between us all that is indescribable. She cherished every moment she had with us and managed to make us all smile, feel loved and never let us leave without having something sweet. Beji touched the lives of many and lived a full and happy life surrounded by family and loved ones.

She was preceded in death by her husband Amrik Singh Bains, father Ganga Singh Bhatti, mother Bishan Kaur Bhatti, brother Mahenga Singh Bhatti, brother Pal Singh Bhatti, sister Naseeb Kaur Chahal, sister Manjit Kaur Bhangal, sister Swaran Kaur Kandola , sister Charan Kaur, sister Preet Kaur Bhatti.
