March 31, 1963 – August 22, 2020
With great sorrow and heavy hearts, we announce the peaceful passing of Mrs. Daljit Kaur Sidhu of Abbotsford (Village Khote, Moga) at the untimely age of 57 years, after a brave battle against cancer.
Daljit is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 25 years, Nirmal Singh Sidhu. Nirmal and Daljit wed in 1995, a marriage arranged by Nirmal’s sisters, Harbans Kaur Gill and Balwinder Kaur Tiwana (Jit Singh). Their marriage was characterized by their unwavering mutual commitment to each other, a selfless willingness to fiercely prioritize their extended family, their mutual love and respect for one another and a sense of playfulness and good humour. They have been active members of the community in Abbotsford where they
raised their children; Sandy, Robin, Harman (Manpal) and Justin and nieces and nephews Jag (Preet), Jason, Jasmeen and Amrit. Daljit was endlessly patient and nurturing and her
loving maternal support for all of her kids was unconditional. She was never too busy for a competitive family game of Monopoly or hours spent on a challenging puzzle with her brood. Anyone who has entered her home knows her door was always open to family, friends and neighbours to drop by for cha, conversation and her famous pakoras. She was an exceptionally talented and creative seamstress with an eye for detail. Her style was understated, elegant and graceful. Her granddaughters Aikam and Emaan, hold fond memories of learning to sew with Naniji and will cherish her lovingly handmade clothing for them and their dolls.
Her mother-in-law Surjit Kaur Sidhu, whom she affectionately called Beeji, and her mother Hardev Kaur Mann, survive her and will miss her endlessly. Daljit’s sisters Charanjit Kaur Cheema and Manjit Kaur Cheema, brothers Satnam Singh Mann and Harmeet Singh Mann, sister-in-law Kuldeep Kaur Sidhu, wife of late Darshan Singh Sidhu, cousins, nieces, nephews and all of Daljit’s family in BC, Calgary, Winnipeg and India will remember her as compassionate, altruistic, humble and joyful. She will be missed dearly by all whose lives she touched. She leaves a void, in our lives and in our hearts, that cannot be filled.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a private, immediate family only funeral service will be held on August 29, 2020 followed by a socially distanced prayer service at Abbotsford Gurdwara Khalsa Diwan.
