Balbir â??Sukhminderâ? Kaur Nijjar

Our beautiful wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. Born in Pawadra, India on June 21, 1947 she married Amarjit Singh Nijjar and came to Canada in 1969 settling for most of her life in the Cowichan Valley where her charming personality attracted a large network of friends and family who loved her dearly. She moved to Burnaby in 2003 where again her caring personality endeared her to all who knew her.

She passed away peacefully on July 6, 2015 at Burnaby after a very short but courageous battle with cancer. She will always be remembered for her: amazing strength, hard work ethic, beautiful smile, fun loving personality, genuine and infinite love for all family and friends, positive outlook, and her strong faith in God.

She is predeceased by her parents Gurbax Singh and Surjit Kaur Dosanjh, and her brother. She is survived by her husband, her son and two daughters and their respective spouses, three grandchildren, and her sister and brother. Thank you to all those who have supported the family during this difficult time.

Mom, you will always remain in our hearts.
