July 24, 1940 – July 10, 2022
In loving memory ~
Our Bibi Ji, Shrimati Bachin Kaur Birdi, wife of Late Shri Lachman Birdi, passed away on Sunday July 10th 2022. Exactly two weeks before turning 82 years of age, she concluded her successful journey through life. Bibi Ji was a sibling of four – one brother lives in Canada and one sister is in India.
Bachin was born in the village of Patara in Punjab, India on July 24th, 1940, to her parents Munshi Ram and Dani Badhan. Married at the age of nineteen, she added ‘Kaur’ to her name after her marriage and together they raised their family in Ram Nagar, Jalandhar.
Our dad, Lachman immigrated to Canada in 1972. In 1973 he called Fort St. James his home. Our mom, along with us, joined our dad in 1976 flying from New Delhi.
She grew up in India where she was unable to receive an education since there was only one all-boys school in her village. In Canada, Bibi Ji was free of these barriers and worked hard to achieve many milestones. She got her driver’s license and owned and operated her very own building maintenance company.
Mom and Dad raised and educated the family and contributed to society in many meaningful ways. Bibi Ji along with our dad continued to visit Jalandhar during the winter months and established a school where they funded the education of those less fortunate. As well as provided countless scholarships to promising youth. Bibi Ji supported several other charitable causes that work towards the elimination of poverty and improving education globally.
Bibi Ji fought pancreatic cancer for two years. Bibi ji will be sadly missed by family and friends including her children: Harbans Kaur & Kamaljit, Jai Paul & Nirmala, Surinder Paul & Jaswinder, Dev Raj & Harjit, Gurdeep Lal & Narinder, Meena Kumari & Balbir, and her ten grandsons, five granddaughters, and one great grandson.
Multi-faith funeral services and final prayers were held on July 15th.
There are not enough words that can describe just how important our mother and Bibi ji was to us and what a powerful influence she continues to be. Bibi Ji left many fond memories. She was a very strong and respected human being.
Bibi Ji will be fondly missed.
