Fatemeh Samandar Merati (Nowkhah)

Kind, loving, gentle soul peacefully ascended from this earthly world to the spiritual kingdom with her family by her side at home on July 3, 2015. She was born on September 23, 1922 in Iran. She studied to be a teacher and worked as one in the same city she was born. She met and married Abbas Nowkhah in 1941, their hearts became illuminated with the love of baha’u’llah and both became devoted Baha’i and raised their children with Baha’i values.

Fatemeh is survived by her loving children; Bijan (Shahnaz), Nasrin (Kamal), Simin, Jila (Siamak), Auri and Azita (Anise), her grandkids; Nezhla, Niusha, Nima, Negin, Ali, Navid, Neda, Samir, Anissa, Burhan, Sina and Keyvaun.

Fatemeh served the society in many ways but mainly focused on teaching reading and writing. She lost her husband in 2000, and then proceeded to move to Canada. She moved to Warfield 8 years ago and illuminated that village with her kindness. Her presence, voice, smile, advice and snow flake kisses will be missed.

A Celebration of Fatemeh’s life will be held at “Carberry’s Chapel” in Trail on Thursday, July 9, 2015 at 10:00 am. There will be a Graveside Service at Mountain View Cemetery and immediately following there will be prayers and refreshments at Azita and Anise’s home, 8239 Old Waneta Road, Trail. Bill Clark of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with the arrangements. You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family’s online register at www.myalternatives.ca

As an expression of sympathy, donations made in her honour to Greater Trail Hospice Society at Suite 7, Kiro Wellness Centre, 1500 Columbia Ave., Trail, BC, V1R 1J9 would be greatly appreciated.
