Carolyn Foley Dutta
With deep sorrow we share with you the sad demise of Caroline Foley Dutta – Sukla Dutta’s younger daughter-in-law. Sukladi, one of our founder members suffered an immeasurable loss in her family on the eve of New Year. Suman, Sukladi’s younger son and his family got into a serious car accident on their way back from Canada on 31st December. Suman and the three children survived the accident with injuries but Carolyn succumbed to the injuries and passed away the same night.
We pray to God to give Sukladi and family the courage to bear this loss. The Dutta family has set-up a web site to collect charitable contribution to donate it for a worthy community cause.
We cannot bring Carolyn back but we can create a memory for her by donating to this fund that will be used for a worthy cause. We will also keep a box to collect your donations during the Sarawati Puja on the 28th for your convenience.
