DHATT, Punjab Kaur
Be the first to share your memories or express your condolences in the Guest Book for Punjab DHATT.
The Matriarch of our family was 97 years young when she passed away peacefully at 3:43 p.m. on July 6th, 2012. Punjab was the eldest of seven children born to Ind Kaur & Kishan Singh Rai in the village of Raiyan, Ludhiana District of Punjab. She was predeceased by her loving husband Sardar Jagdish Singh Dhatt from the village of Sheikhupura and survived by her younger sister Ajaib Kaur Dhatt. Like her mother, she was blessed to have seven wonderful children: Mohinder Kaur, Bhagwant Kaur, Rajinder Kaur, Manjit Kaur, Avtar Singh, Harbans Kaur, and Harbans Singh. The immeasurable impact she had on the lives of her 19 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren defines the incredible legacy she leaves behind. Her interests included: watching General Hospital (for over 35 years) and Pratigya, listening to her favorite radio talk shows, crocheting, and spending time with her countless loved ones. Her life was the epitome of strength and resilience; she was the glue that held the family together and a pure soul who was loved and admired by all. In her final days in the hospital, she was surrounded by over one hundred family members who watched her gracefully depart. Punjab Kaur Dhatt, our "Bibi ji", will be forever missed and never forgotten. Come celebrate her life with us at the Five Rivers Funeral Home on this Sunday, July 15th, located at 7410 Hopcott Road in Delta, BC at 2:00 p.m. followed by prayers held at New Westminster Gurdwara at 4:00 p.m.
