December 4, 1982 – November 4, 2012
It’s been a year since you’ve been gone and it feels like yesterday you were here. They say time heals all wounds, but time doesn’t heal, it just gives you a chance to get stronger to deal with reality.
Born December 4, 1982 in Kamloops, she graduated from Salmon Arm Secondary in 2000 and completed her BBA at Kamloops Thompson Rivers University in 2005. Mandy married Davinder from New Westminster on September 4, 2010.
Mandy was a devoted wife, loving daughter and youngest sibling. Her exuberant personality and zest for life left all who met her with indelible memories. Mandy got sick and was not able to recover from the complications from an auto immune disorder called Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS). Mandy had a stay at the Shuswap Lake General Hospital and was very impressed with the level of care she received except the fact that there wasn’t a Blanket Warmer on the 4th level of the Hospital. Her parents have made a donation to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation and they purchased a Blanket Warmer in her honor for the 4th floor.
Quote by mother Nancy Dhaliwal in the Shuswap Hospital Foundation Progress Report November 2013: “The warmth of a blanket is appreciated in the hospital. I am happy to have donated to the purchase of a Blanket Warmer in memory of my daughter Mandy Dhaliwal-Sumra to support patient care in times of need.”
