DHALIWAL, Amrit Kaur (nee Mohar) Amrit was born March 22nd, 1956 in Tongi, Burma. Passed away in Vancouver B.C., July 28th 2004, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Amrit died surrounded by family and loved ones at the age of 48. A devoted wife and proud, loving mother, she is mourned by her husband, Herb, and her children, Andrea, Justin and Jessica. Predeceased by her father, Tehal Singh, Amrit is lovingly remembered by her mother Rattan, brothers Viryam (Dolly), and Baldev (Sonu), and younger sister Amarjit (Parmjit). She will also be dearly missed by a close-knit extended family of in-laws, nieces and nephews, many relatives and good friends. Amrit arrived in Canada in August 1980 as a fresh-faced bride-to-be. As she got to know her mischievous young husband, she embraced the challenges of a new country and a new life with grace and good humour. Her children were a constant source of inspiration, pride and comfort to her. When she wasn't tending to her young flock, she took pleasure in learning the finer arts of flower arrangement, gardening and interior design. In 1993, Amrit left her treasured social circle in Richmond, B.C., taking her easy smile and ready laugh to Ottawa, where Herb was starting a new job as an MP. There, she displayed her trademark knack for making friends, and submerged herself in adventure, experiencing real Canadian winters by cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and even sleigh riding. Always aware of her role in public life, she worked tirelessly on the campaign trail through three elections. Proud of her heritage and culture, a devout follower of her Sikh faith, Amrit appreciated the importance of being the spouse of the first federal Cabinet Minister of South Asian descent. She was a strong advocate of her unique constituency. In spite of the unyielding pain she suffered towards the end of her life, Amrit fought valiantly, exceeding even her doctors' expectations. Special thanks to the outstanding team of doctors and nurses at St. Paul's Hospital. Prayers will be offered on Sunday, August 1st , at the Five Rivers Funeral Home in Delta, B.C. Donations to the B.C. Cancer Foundation and/or the Canadian Cancer Society are appreciated. The Ottawa Citizen
