Annamma and her husband worked very hard and were able to support and bring siblings from both sides of their family to the US. Their marriage of over 45 years was a testament to love and faithfulness and together they built a beautiful family under the love of Christ.

Her home was always open and full of love and joy.

In 2002, she was diagnosed with Lymphoma. By the grace of God, she was able to fight it and be in remission. She went through many illnesses, injuries and surgeries where she was admitted to the hospital but through it all God strengthened her and delivered her. Recently she became sick and her lungs stopped functioning properly. She wanted to be home with her family and was dearly taken care of by her husband and family and was surrounded by their love in her last days. Now she is with her Heavenly Father to a place where there is no sorrow, no sickness and no pain.

She is survived by her husband, Paul Abraham, son Abe (Manoj) Paul and wife Betsy, daughter Ruby and husband Abu and grandchildren David, Elyssa, Timothy and Elijah as well as four remaining siblings Susamma, Jose, Lizzy and Sam and their families and many nieces and nephews. She will be deeply missed.
