Mohinder Kaur

On Tuesday 11 December 2013, one of the Scottish Sikh community’s oldest Sevadaars (volunteers), Mrs Mohinder Kaur Sidhu, passed away in a Glasgow hospital.

Mrs Mohinder Kaur arrived in the UK over 50 years ago and quickly settled into Glasgow’s nascent Sikh community. She was a passionate and committed Sevadaar (volunteer) who spent many weekends preparing the Langar in the community kitchen.

In April 2013, she witnessed the opening of Scotland’s first purpose-built Sikh Gurdwara, a moment of personal joy for her and celebration for the whole community. On this day she remarked, that she was leaving behind a lasting legacy having inspired a generation of Sikhs to serve the community.

Mrs Mohinder Kaur’s funeral will take place on Tuesday 17th December 2013 from 11am at Linn Crematorium. This will be followed by an Akhand Path at 12 noon at Gurdwara Guru Granth Sahib, 37 Albert Drive, G41 2PE.
