NARANG, Nirmal (nee Grover)

It is with great sadness to announce the passing of our dear mother, wife, sister and friend, Nirmal Narang.

Nirmal was born in Akalgarh, India in 1937. As a result of the Partition in 1947, her family moved to Chandigarh, India where she went on to become a public health nurse. She married in 1963 and moved to England before settling in Calgary in 1969. She was a founding member of the Hindu Society of Calgary and played a significant role in the establishment of the Hindu temple. She was dedicated to helping others in her community by her compassionate and giving nature. She had a smile that would light up a room and touched many with her generosity and mentorship.

She will be greatly missed by her loving husband of 52 years Chaman Lal, son Vineet (Mina), daughter Ritu (Mark), grandchildren Monika, Natasha, Nathan and Meghana, and by family and friends in England, India, Calgary, Toronto and Phoenix. She is survived by her brother Ajay Grover and sisters Raj Arora, Monica Kaila and Nisha Nanda and is pre-deceased by her parents Kundan Lal and Kailash Vanti Grover, her sister Kamlesh Juneja and her brother Avinash Grover.

Special thanks to her nephrologist, Dr. Samuel Schorr, for his support and guidance over many years.

  3. It is extremely hard and painful to come to terms with the fact that you have gone so far. Your smiling face and laughter often comes in front of my eyes but it is really depressing to know that I would not be able to see you again. This loss is inconsolable and the void that you have left will stay forever.
    I cant do much but pray to God to give courage to Narang saab, Ritu, Vineet and all the family members and help us come to terms with this reality.
    I will miss you dearly… Every minute… every day.

    Hello Chaman:

    I am sad to know about the passing away of Nirmal. I would have liked to attend the funeral. However, I am presently in India and hence could not. Passing away of Nirmal is great loss to you. She supported you for 52 years in your married life. I pray that the God give you courage and strength to withstand this loss.

    My heartfelt condolence to you and all in the family.

    Jagan Wani
