Oovi Farhad Irani Obituary
Oovi Farhad Irani

AGE: 71 • Wilmington

We say farewell here on earth as the heavens welcome a true angel coming home. Beloved wife, mother, grandmother and sister, Oovi Farhad Irani, 71, of Wilmington passed away on Sunday, Dec 27th. She went out of this world as she lived in it, with grace and dignity.

Oovi is survived by her husband of 45 years, Farhad, her younger brother Gustasp, her children, Zarir (wife Nicole) and Shirin (husband Greg), and her five cherished grandchildren, Jasper and Jade Pinkus and Kirah, Keagan and Keelin Irani. She was predeceased by five days by her dear dog, Percy.

Born in Pune, India, Oovi attended Presentation Convent, Kodaikanal and Sophia College in Bombay. After working as an air hostess for Air India she married and emigrated to the US in 1970. She became a US citizen some years later. She worked for years with the federal government where she made many close friendships.

She will be remembered as one of the most kind, gentle, devoted and patient people one could know. She always chose to see the good and be the light. Selfless and giving to all beings large and small, she brought joy and love to so many and her light will live on through all she touched with her graces.

We wish her peace as we say our goodbyes. Services will be held at 1:30pm on Wednesday, December 30th at Chandler Funeral Home 7230 Lancaster Pike, Hockessin, DE 19707. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to UNICEF in Oovi's name.
