Harbhajan Kaur Purewal Obituary

Harbhajan Kaur Purewal passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on April 1st, 2017.

A divinely guided woman, caring mother, cherished sister, and dear friend to all, she blessed this Earth with her spirit and strength.

Born in the village of Rurkha located in Punjab, India to parents Lal Singh and Dhan Kaur Sandhu, she was the youngest daughter of six children.

Harbhajan Kaur married Bakhtawar Singh Purewal in India. Following her marriage, she immigrated to the United States in 1957 to join her husband. They briefly resided in Lodi, California however, settled in Yuba City. It was here they began to build a new life together.

Shortly upon settling, the couple was blessed with their first child in 1960 and four more followed. Harbhajan Kaur was the matriarch of her family; a devoted wife, loving mother and cherished grandmother. A pioneer of the Sikh American community in Northern California she was active in her local Sikh Gurdwara. Her unconditional support and faith was an inspiration to all. She was a member of the women's prayer group at the Tierra Buena Sikh Temple. They met every Tuesday where they prepared langar and listened to kirtan.

Harbhajan Kaur is preceded in death by her beloved husband Bakhtawar Singh Purewal.

She leaves behind a devoted family: her five children; Sukhbinder (son-in-law Harinder), Ginger, Sharon (son-in-law Shinda), Sukhdev (daughter-in-law Jaspal), and Munjit; eight grandchildren Sathi, Amrita, Shaunjit, Simi, Arjan, Rumyn, Vikram, and Nevin.
