Born on January 19, 1937

Departed on January 8, 2018


Amarjit Kaur Biln, a long time resident of Richmond, passed away on January 8 at Vancouver General Hospital surrounded by her loving family.

Born in 1937 in Jalandhar, India, Amarjit married Latief Biln in 1953 and immigrated to Canada in 1965 with their then two young daughters in tow. They went on to have three more children; two daughters and a son.

Amarjit worked very hard to ensure her family thrived and that they had the most important things in life: love and a sense of security.

Amarjit loved to socialize with her many friends and enjoyed cooking, knitting, and mastering any domestic art she came across.  She was always active and enjoyed taking long walks.  She was completely devoted to the Gurdwara and reading Gurbhani every chance that she had.  She had an unforgettable smile and a radiance that could light up any room she was in. She also had a razor sharp mind and a keen wit, with the kind of inner strength we can only aspire to achieve.

Amarjit is survived by her loving husband Latief; daughters Hermesh Atwal (Monnie), Parm Johal (Terry), Kam Alam, and Tina Gautama (Bob); son David Manjeet Biln (Raman); and her 10 grandchildren.

We love you – you will always be in our hearts and minds.

Funeral services will be held on Monday, January 15 at 10 a.m. at the Riverside Funeral Home and Crematorium (7410 Hopcott Road, Delta) followed by a religious service (bhog) ceremony at the India Cultural Centre of Canada (8600 No. 5 Road, Richmond).
