Obituary (UK): Indra Pedropillai, Beloved wife, mother, grandmother and sister
It is with deep regret and sadness that we inform you that Mrs. Indra Pedropillai – wonderful and loving wife, mother and sister, retired professional accountant, finance director, teacher and active member of her church – passed away peacefully in the early hours of 22nd January 2020, following a stroke on 20th December 2019.
She was the devoted and cherished wife of Ivan Pedropillai and the dearest mother of Ajith and Corinne, loving mother-in-law of Damian and Marina and the proud, kind and caring grandmother of Rhys, Edward and Harry.
She was the second daughter of the late Mr Soosapillai and Mrs Josephine Rayappu (both of Jaffna, Sri Lanka) and a much loved sister of Teresa Joseph (England), the late Anton Rayappu, Rajes Bastiampillai (Canada), Punitha Benedict (England), Bonny Rayappu (Australia), Suba Rayappu (England), Niranjan Rayappu (USA), Jacinta Regis (England) and Nirmala Simon (Canada).
She will be missed dearly by her in-laws, godchildren, nephews, nieces, family friends, work colleagues and the church community to whom she was so devoted.
A life fulfilled through dedication to all those around her and a happiness that she has touched so many in such a wonderful way. A bright candle has gone out amongst us all.

Gone But Not Forgotten
We sat beside your bedside,
Our hearts were crushed and sore;
We did our best to the end,
‘Til we could do no more.
In tears we watched you sinking,
We watched you fade away;
And though our hearts were breaking,
We knew you could not stay.
You left behind aching hearts,
That loved you most sincere;
We never shall forget you,
And hold you ever near.
