Our Beloved Acamat Rampersaud was born to Mr. and Mrs. Bissoon on May, 20th, 1935 in
Ogle, East Coast Demerara, Guyana. She received her formal education at the Ogle Primary
School in Guyana. She was the youngest of seven children (Lakhan, Magelene, Soakie, Lilian,
Gobin and Bajan ) whom are all deceased.
One day, during her teenage years she saw a handsome young man, Mr. Michael Rampersaud
a/k as Bulla lifting weights with her brother-in-law, Cyril. The pair immediately fell in love and
got married on 12th May, 1951. Together they built a life for seven beautiful children Patsy,
Beatrice a/k as Evo/Yvonne, Dave, Cecil, Aeran, Valire, and Gaitri.
Life in Guyana
Life in Guyana was a bitter sweet one but this is where she blossomed into a well cultured,
industrious woman, a remarkable homemaker and seamstress. She enjoyed the rich culture of
her homeland such as preparing great Guyanese cuisine, listening and dancing to the melodic
Indian music, and going to cultural events and church/temple.
Raising seven children in Guyana was not an easy undertaking, but she and her husband give
their best to ensure that their children were educated and equipped for life. In an effort to
support her family, she and her husband worked a mini farm where its produce were parceled
and sold every Saturday morning at the Kitty Market. It was an arduous task, but she faithfully
went out to market her produce on a weekly basis.
Throughout the years, she was blessed to see her family expand through marriages and the
births of several grandchildren, whom she welcomed with pride and joy.
Culture, faith, good values and love were important qualities she instills in her children and to a
larger extent her grandchildren. She was a selfless mother and grandmother who made
countless sacrifices for her family, always striving to provide them with a better life. She worked
tirelessly to ensure their happiness and well-being.
In Guyana, Acamat experienced unspeakable loss when her husband Bulla and three of her
precious children [Cecil, Dave and Patsy] died. Despite these inconsolable pains, she carried on
with grace and dignity, always striving to find joy in the little things and to bring happiness to
those around her.

Life in Canada
In 1996, a whole new chapter awaited her as she was able to migrate to Canada along with
three of her children. She is eternally grateful to her daughter Beatrice and her son-in-law
Chead/Ram who made migration to Canada a possibility.
Here in Canada, life was far easier on her. It was quite a new experience but she quickly
adjusted. She reunited with relatives, made new friends, worked as a baby sitter and lunch
room supervisor at Hazel McCallion School in Mississauga, and traveled to different places. Her
children ensure that she was well taken care of. They provided homes where she always
enjoyed visiting and living. During her pastimes, she loved watching Soap operas, Young &
Restless, Bold and the beautiful and the Price is right, having a good hearty laugh and a cry,
reminiscing about the good old days, attending church/Temple and praising God. She was a
member of the Full Gospel Redemption Center; she was loved by the Church family. She enjoy
shopping at Albion Mall on Saturdays. She had her personal hair dresser and shopped her
favorite groceries, then had a hearty meal at Mac Donald. She experienced much needed peace
and happiness.
As the years progressed, she was again blessed as her family continues to grow through several
more marriages, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and a great-great grandchild. She took
pride in celebrating her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren accomplishments and
She lived a full life but the inevitable happened. Age and illness caught up with her and her
body started to degenerate. Her health continued to decline but her family provided the care,
love and support needed. Her family gave her around the clock attention especially when she
was taking dialysis and became feebler. Her son Aeran and daughter in law, Stacey were her
primary caregivers. Her daughters Beatrice, Valerie and Gaitri gave their utmost. Also her
To us and others she is Mommy, Mom, Nanny, Grandma, Puwa, Mamee, Bhowjie auntie
Acamat and Auntie Doldol/Dolly, names that commensurate the true meaning of love, sacrifice,
determination, courage and strength. Despite facing numerous difficulties and hardships for
more than half of her lifetime, she never lost her unwavering love and devotion for her family.
Her journey was a testament to her inner strength, loves the Lord, resilience, courage and
mental fortitude. She was a true fighter and has always put the needs of her children above her
own. Acamat is the true matriarch and heroine of our family.

She leaves behind a legacy of love, resilience, and courage that will continue to inspire future
generations. Her infectious smile, warm embrace, and unwavering spirit will never be
“Who can find a virtuous woman? She is worth far more than rubies.Her children arise and call
her blessed; many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” -Proverbs 31. Acamat,
has run the race, fought a good fight, has kept the faith and now is laid up for her a crown of
righteousness which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to her.
Rest in peace, Mom, Nanny, your love, strength, and sacrifice is forever etched in our hearts.
You will always be loved and deeply missed.
She is survived by her four children Beatrice, Aeran, Valire, and Gaitri; sons-in- law Raj, Chead
and Raymond; daughter-in-law Stacey; 11 grandchildren ( Rayon & Carlotta, Sunil & Gaitree,
Debbie & Gary, Sharon & Sarwan, Anil & Vanessa, Vishal & Gigi, Melissa, Bethany, Johnathan,
