Beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother
Sardarni Ranjit Kaur Kohli, 78 of Carmel, Indiana, passed away surrounded by family at her home on Saturday, September 12, 2020.
Born March 8, 1942 in Karachi, she was the daughter of Avtar Singh and Mata Ram Kaur Sethi. In 1961, she moved to Kuwait after her marriage to Ajit Singh Kohli at which point they began their life together. From Kuwait, to Dubai, to San Francisco she finally made it to her last home in Carmel, Indiana.
She is survived by her husband, Ajit Singh Kohli; son and daughter-in-law, Gurprit Singh and Mona Kaur Kohli; daughter and son-in-law, Ena and Surinder Singh Chadha; daughter and son-in-law, Vinny and Sumit Gogia; grandchildren, Manveen-Hansveer Chandhok, Jasjit-Anna Chadha, Shajit, Noor, Shaan, and Manik; and great-grandchildren, Kiara and Zayne.
She battled kidney disease for many years and despite many ups and downs she persevered. Any doctor, nurse, or medical professional that knew her would attest to her incredible resilience. Her generosity was well known. No matter how hard life was, she never gave up. Her strong faith in the Creator gave her limitless strength.

Gurbani says only Waheguruji controls the comings and goings.
The almighty holds the power and the authority to create and destroy.
None can interfere with his Hukam (command).
Her life was a blessing, her memories will be a treasure we hold dear.
Loved beyond words and will be missed beyond measure by:
The Kohli Family
The Sethi Family
The Chadha Family
The Gogia Family
The Kochar Family

Antam saskar means last rite.
Sikhism considers Death a natural process and God's will or Hukam. To a Sikh, birth and death are closely associated, because they are both part of the cycle of human life of coming and going Aaavan Jaan. which is seen as transient stage towards Liberation Mokh Du-aar, complete unity with God. Sikhs believe in reincarnation. The soul itself is not subject to death, it is only the progression of the soul on its journey from God, through the created universe and back to God again.
What to wear to a Sikh funeral
It is best to dress modestly, in muted colors with not too much skin showing.
You will be expected to cover your heads at the funeral, with a headscarf and to remove your shoes.
Someone will be there to guide you.
Sikh funeral etiquette
If you are a non-Sikh attending a Sikh funeral, you will not be expected to participate in prayers and readings. Simply stay respectfully silent, and sit or stand when the rest of the congregation does so.
