It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Surinder Kaur Gill, on May 7th, 2020 after a short illness. She was 80 years old. Surinder was the beloved wife of the late Didar Singh Gill (2004), loving mother of the late Harjinder Singh Gill (2018) and Harbinder Singh Gill (Michelle), cherished grandmother of Dilshad, Jasmine, Aviana and Rohan, devoted sister to her siblings, a fun loving aunt to her many nieces and nephews and friend to all she met during her journey of life.
During her 80 years, she lived a full life. Those who had the good fortune of meeting her and knowing her would say she was a strong, loving, always cheerful and face any adversity - head on, kind of lady. To her children, grandchildren and friends, she epitomized a wholesome kind of maternal zest and love. She was a great cook who could have Parathas ready for her children and their friends in no time - at any hour of the day. In fact some say that "Gill Aunty" used Parathas to let them know how much she loved them. It was her way of showing that she cared about you and that you were dear to her. No guest or visitor was allowed to leave her home without enjoying a cup of tea, a treat or delicious meal. She also loved to knit, and gifted many scarves and hats to friends and family.
She was a self-empowering type, who would help you get up after a fall - dust you off, help you back in the saddle and send you on your way with sage advice delivered in kind words. She was the most loving, humble, gentle, compassionate, family oriented, completely selfless and inspiring soul. A hallmark characteristic of her's was helping others in their hour of need, and being besides family and friends to help them face any adversity. She loved to laugh and talk to friends, family, and people from all walks of life. Her zest for life was unmatched, and her love for everyone in her life was completely unconditional. She had an incredible sense of humour, a remarkable memory for birthdays and anniversaries and a knack for telling stories that imparted life lessons. Whenever one asked how she was doing, she would always respond in Punjabi with "Chardi kala" , which can be loosely translated as being in a state of “relentless cheerfulness, optimism and hopeful even in the face of challenges or adversity."
Her unbounded energy, genuine love and affection for family and friends, and her infectious laughter will be deeply missed by all who had the honour and pleasure of knowing her. Her culinary skills, love of sharing recipes, and figuring out new recipes to enhance her cooking skills will be missed by family and friends. Most of all, her tight hugs will be missed by her grandchildren, children, nieces and nephews, as well as sisters and brothers.
Funeral services have been entrusted to Brampton Crematorium & Visitation Centre at 30 Bramwin Court, Brampton. A religious service will be held at a later date.

Today I said a final goodbye to my bhuaji. She was a woman with so, so many virtues. She was loving, compassionate, wise, funny, welcoming and magical. In fact, she was our very own genie. As children, my sister and I had the honour of spending a summer with her and our wish was her command. And that too with a smile. She never frowned at the mess we made and spent the days doting on us, from preparing new and tasty dishes, to sleeping with us on the veranda and buying us gifts of our liking. And she continued this into our adult lives and would apologize now that she had become too weak to cater to us. My bhuji was resilient and adjusting. I can imagine her coming to Baroda as a simple girl from Punjab and then in her later years making Canada her home. She was ever the optimist and only wished for the best for all of us. I do believe that the blessings we received over our life from bhuji and phuphurji have made us who we are today. She had the biggest heart and is one of the very few people in this world who never had a negative word for anyone. Whenever bhuji came over our house was filled with laughter and joy. Bhuji always had a smile and brightened the life of all those she touched. I hope that I can be even half the Bhua that she was to me to my nieces and nephews. You will be missed bhuji but your beautiful memories will never be forgotten.

Gill Aunty was my mother's best friend and dearly beloved by everyone in my family. Her love for us knew no bounds. Each time I visited my parents, she would bring over a bowl of "sheera" (sweetened wholewheat flour cooked in ghee) right before lunch each day. She would even apologize if she missed a day because she was tied up with other chores. Gill Aunty was a constant source of support for our family, a pillar of strength through some of the darkest times we faced. She was always there, even in the middle of the night, if somebody fell ill. After my mother passed away, she looked after my father, who was living by himself. Without Gill Aunty keeping an eye on his well being, I don't think he could have continued living on his own. She was always easy with a hearty laugh and had a keen sense of humor, with a naughty smile on her face as she asked a sarcastic question or two. What I will remember most about Gill Aunty is the warmth and love that she showered on us all, and the strength of her character that was often on display when times were tough. She was the glue in her family and drew us all in to be part of hers as well. We will always remember her generosity and kindness and miss her dearly.
