March 4, 1936 - May 4, 2024

Born March 4, 1936, affectionately known as Bebe, peacefully passed on May 4th, 2024, in her hometown of Abbotsford B.C. with all of her loved ones by her side.

She is survived by her husband, Hardev Singh Bath, her children Bhupinder, Surinder, Naginder, Sukhminder & Sikander; her 14 grandchildren & 7 great-grandchildren.

On February 27, 1975, she emigrated with her five children from India to Louis Creek, B.C. to join her husband, thus beginning a new chapter of her life in Canada. Shortly thereafter, the family made its way and settled in Abbotsford where she worked tirelessly to create a legacy for her family.

She had a kind soul. Jaswant was one of the most selfless people that we knew; her mission in life was to help the less fortunate. This was exemplified through her countless charitable endeavors, including the construction of the Bhageechi Sahib Gurudwara, and the Bath Eye Hospital in her village of Jalaldiwal.

She also made numerous contributions to Tahliana Sahib Gurudwara and School in Raikot. But perhaps her greatest legacy is in that she raised principled, independent, and charitable children and grandchildren.

Bebe was famous for her cooking -- especially her samosas and saag. She loved to gather her friends and spend the day cooking and regaling everyone with stories. She was generous, thoughtful, and the hardest working person we knew. Her legacy of love, resilience, and service leaves a lasting mark on all who knew her.

We miss her dearly.
