Shah, Jyoti

February 2nd, 2019

We are deeply saddened to share the sudden passing of Jyoti Shah, on Saturday, February 2, 2019.  Beloved wife of Dr. P. C (Raju) for 52 years.  Cherished mother to Chirag (Ritu) and Amit (Anita).  Grandmother to Deena, Priyanka, Sabina, Shreyas, Shivani and Sujai.  Sister of Jitu (deceased), Anil, Chetan, Ketan, Swati and Sonal.  Jyoti was born in Ahmedabad, India.  In 1970, she and Raju took a leap of faith and travelled across the world, eventually settling their young family in Canada in 1973. She dedicated her life to family, friends and community.  Jyoti was a kind, loving spirit who left an indelible impression on all who knew her.  Her warmth, generosity, and sense of humour gave her a special place in many hearts.  She was legendary for her hospitality and magical culinary touch.  Her love for travel and get togethers with friends and family was only surpassed by her dedication to her six grandchildren.  Her unexpected departure has left a huge hole in our hearts.  A visitation will be held at WESTVIEW FUNERAL CHAPEL, 709 Wonderland Road North, London, on Saturday, February 9, 2019 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. Cremation will take place in a private family ceremony.  In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Hindu Cultural Centre of London or London Health Sciences Foundation.
