Mandeep Mandy Dhaliwal-Sumra, 29, of Langley (formerly from Salmon Arm), passed away peacefully in the arms of her husband on November 4, 2012. 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. She worked alongside her father and brother to build the successful City Furniture store in Salmon Arm. She showed incredible strength, courage and dignity whilst battling with Guillain Barre Syndrome for the last 12 months and recovered from paralysis of the lower body.
Her approach to life is succinctly expressed by the following words of Khalil Gibran:
Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by
the way your mind looks at what happens.
Mandy is survived by her husband Davinder Sumra and parents Gordy and Nancy Dhaliwal of Salmon Arm and siblings Rav Khrod, Sandip Khrod, Prab Dhaliwal, and Sunny Dhaliwal.
