It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother, Sarujanie Ramjattan, known as Leila, who passed away peacefully on December 23rd, 2022, in Canada at the age of 95. She was the sixth of seven children born to the late Ramjattan and Rajwantie of No. 58 Village, Corentyne, Berbice, on July 3rd, 1927.
She lived in Springlands, Corentyne, No. 58 Village, Corentyne, No. 2 Village, East Canje, Guyana, before migrating to Toronto, Canada, in September 2004.
She was married to the late Samlall, known as Harry of Springlands, Corentyne, Guyana. Mother of Krishna Sewkumar, mother-in-law of Sewkumar Fagu known as Isaac and Ono. Grandmother of Chandra Raghubir (Dru), Sevita Roophnath (Sabi), Nan Sewkumar (Mala), Mohinie Sewkumar (Tara) and Bhuwaneshwar Sewkumar (Dharm).

She was the matriarch of the family and a wonderful Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother who was always there and a well-loved member of the community in which she lived. Many referred to her as Nanny, who was the light of her family because of the loving, kind, humble, and compassionate person she was. We were blessed to have her in our lives. Nanny would be dearly missed and forever be in the hearts of all those who were lucky to be blessed by her.
Aum Trayambakam, Yajamahe Sugandhim Pusti Vardhanam Uravarukam-iva bandhanat mrtyormuksiya mamrtat (We worship the three-eyed one, who is fragrant and who nourishes all. Like the fruit falls off from the bondage of the stem, may we be liberated from death, from morality).
May Lord Krishna bless your soul with salvation and eternal happiness.
Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti, Hari Aum.
