I first met Fiona through a Sathya Sai Baba Satsang near Ottawa and was instantly struck by her warmth, her beauty, and poise. Over the following years we became close friends, a friendship which survived occasional heated arguments amidst the predominant sweetness, joviality, and inspiring intimacy. Fiona was a veritable encyclopedia of Theosophy and related subjects. What a rare treasure, our spunky pilgrim, steadfast in her devotion to family, friends, Theosophy and the Eternal Truth. I dearly miss her as she often comes to mind.
She's undoubtedly basking in higher dimensions and beaming blessings and assistance on us all, especially her beloved Victoria T.S. group..

Fiona was a special light in the world. I met her at Sri Sathya Sai Baba ashram in India in the 1980s and we kept in touch since then.

On March 9, 2019 a special worship was made for her at Adi Annamalai Temple, Arunachala. The puja was dedicated to Lord Siva and his consort Goddess Ambal and also to the Navagrahas ... to bless Fiona and help her transition and make a good rebirth as a devotee of the Divine.

During the puja the 108 celebratory names of Lord Shiva and the Aditya Hridayam (hymn to the Sun) were chanted.

Blessings of light and grace from Arunachala, India and Meenakshi...a friend who loves you.

It was in the early 1980s, that I first met Fiona, after she had just moved to Victoria BC.
I was immediately struck with the combination of so much cheerfulness, grace and seriousness in a single personality,
That combination even included a touch of "divine tipsiness".
These traits were ever-present constants, despite life passages through times of great turbulence and suffering.
Fiona was also a seeker after hidden things.
Now she is in a place where she may find the things that she had been seeking and thereby prepare for her next adventure.
Till we meet again, Fiona !
