June 15, 1920 – Sadhar, India
August 24, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved “Mama” on Sunday, August 24, 2014 at the age of 94 years.
Omwatti was born in Panjab, India. After her marriage in 1938, she immigrated to Uganda where she lived until 1971. She immigrated to England for two years and settled in Canada in 1974. Mama spent most of her time with family in Calgary, but was loved by family around the world. Mama was gentle, kind hearted, generous and had a loving nature. Mama had a winsome personality and will be fondly remembered by her family and a multitude of friends.
Omwatti is survived by three sons, Ravi (Indu), Warrendar (Kamlesh), and Vishan; two daughters, Nirmala (Subash) and Primla (Prem); and many loving grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband in 1953 and daughter in law Veena in 2013.
