BANKI, Samin

March 21, 1988 – August 25, 2011

Samin Banki, beloved daughter of Behrooz and Shiva, passed away peacefully on Thursday August 25, 2011 at the age of 23 years.

Samin was born in 1988 on the first day of spring in Tehran, Iran. She came to Canada at age of ten and continued her preliminary education in city of Calgary. Though from a different culture, she adapted to the new environment very quickly. She always appreciated the cultural differences and always maintained the ability to understand and apply them correctly. She graduated from University of Calgary in Commerce – Finance in Spring 2011.

She was full of life and like a wild deer running on cliffs, she was discovering life. On her very short journey through the life she touched many, through their needs, joy, and sadness, with her love.

Samin is survived by her loving parents, Behrooz and Shiva; grand parents, Hamid, and Ghamar.

Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Wednesday, August 31, 2011 from 5:00 to 8:30 p.m. Graveside Service to be held at Queen’s Park Cemetery on Thursday, September 1, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Samin Banki, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.

Offer Condolence for the family of BANKI, Samin
