Savitaben was the heart of the family who always showed us the way to live life and always care for one another. She was a kind, intelligent and devoted wife, mother and grandmother who loved to share her amazing knowledge and skills. She was greatly admired for her wonderful sewing and used to run a sewing school in Mombasa.  Her strong minded determination can be seen through her family and will live through us. She will sorely missed by her husband of more than 65 years. We all take comfort that she always said “she had a wonderful life” and now continues her journey to find eternal peace.

her soul to rest in peace. The funeral will be televised and those who wish to attend virtually please email us and we will send you a link.
