October 4, 1952 – September 11, 2020
Our beloved mother Malvinder “Papu” Kaur,
“ Lady with the big heart” was born on October 4th, 1952 in Moradabad, India and passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family in Richmond, Va. on September 11th, 2020. She was a devoted mother and one of the hardest working individuals for those that truly knew her. She was loved by so many for her selfless, kind and giving nature. For the past 30 years, she was an integral part of the Indian-American community in Richmond as well as her Sikh-American family for her humanitarian nature. She taught us the true meaning of life by giving back with an open heart, making the most of what life gives you and most importantly take time to find joy in the little things and create your own happiness. We are forever grateful to her. Her presence and million dollar smile will be deeply missed by her family and all those who were closest to her.
Please do take the time to share thoughts, memories and your friendship with our sweet mother.
A private funeral service will be held on Wednesday, September 16, 2020. In lieu of flowers, we humbly request you to donate towards the below causes that were supported by our mother:

I am sadden by the news. You have talked so much about your mom that she is strong woman full of goodness..Here are few lines from the poem I wrote
When you feel helpless and think how you can cope & have no clue
And you think life is being unfair to you
Remember you are not on your own
You have friends and family
you are not alone
When we met we became instantly friends
I know our friendship will never end
When you are walking on the life's dark road
And have no hope
Be strong, keep your faith, her fo
You will find solace & will be easier to cope

We are so fortunate to have known our dearest Papu Didi.
Her beautiful smile was very infectious. She was a generous and loving person. Always there for everyone. I have so many beautiful memories of times we spent together.
Her love for cooking and feeding everyone was something my mother would do. Her always doing things for others with no one knowing was true seva Her love for doing path, her connection with Waheguru was a close one.
She is now with him and is smiling down upon us with that radiant smile which we all love and remember.
We will miss you always our dearest Papu Didi

I have known Pappu Di for long time through Gurdwara & social gatherings in Richmond. She was always smiling & full of life. We often used to have our monthly pot luck lunches with our group of friends she would recommend eating healthy meals very health conscious. We loved ❤ having her as part of our little group . She will be dearly missed. May Waheguru bless her soul & give strength to the family & loved ones to bare this loss 🙏🙏

I have know Pappu Di since she moved in to Richmond and in 2017 we became neighbors. It was a beautiful time and she made me feel as if my Mayka had come there. She loved feeding and taking care of everyone and during my two surgeries, she pampered me a lot. Her memories and love will always be in my heart.
