Gurdev Kaur Pandher
July 21, 1923 – August 3, 2019
On the morning of August 3rd 2019, surrounded by the people she loved, Gurdev Kaur Pandher (nee Sekhon) passed away peacefully in her sleep. Matriarch, Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother, her legacy lives on in her 4 children, Baljinder Thindh (Ajit), Dilbar Pandher (Harinderpal), Shingara Pandher (Paramjit), and Sikander Pandher (Maninder). She was also greatly loved by her 11 grandchildren, and her 3 great grandchildren.
Gurdev was born in Ber Kalan, Punjab, India. A great story teller, she would often reminisce about her childhood and family life in India. She immigrated to Canada in October of 1982, where she spent the remainder of her life.
Our Bibiji will be remembered for her big heart, selfless nature, and the life lessons she imparted on us. She loved having a full house, and making sure no one left her home on an empty stomach. She was fiercely independent, strong willed, and was a magnetic force that drew generations of her family together.
We take solace in the fact that Bibiji is now surrounded by those that predeceased her - her husband, Bhag Singh Pandher, and her brothers and sister. Although gone in body, the essence of her spirit lives on in all of us.
A funeral service will be held on Thursday, August 8th at 10:00 am at Thomson “In the Park” Funeral Home, 1291 McGillivray Boulevard, followed by Antim Ardas and Bhog at Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara, 900 McLeod Ave.

Dear bibi, I feel as if it still hasn't completely hit me that you are gone. When I saw your obituary today it seemed kind of surreal.
I am so grateful for having you in my life and being able to spend so much time with you. I know you are happy wherever you are and it gives me solace that you are finally reunited with nanaji.
You have left such a void in all of our lives and our hearts. I love you bibi and hope I have the privilege of being your granddaughter in every lifetime. Thank you for everything you did for me and thank you for giving me my mother.
