Obituary of Sukhni Sookhlall

Sukhni Sookhlall was born in Georgetown, Guyana on December 2, 1929. She was the eldest of nine children and grew up in Cornelia Ida, Guyana. Sukhni was a hard worker and learned the meaning of sacrifice at a young age as she wasn't given the opportunity to get an education. In her early life, she was a field worker doing manual labor in the sugar cane fields in Guyana. When she was 15 years, she married Doman Sookhlall and  together the two had 11 children - 2 boys and 9 girls. With the help of eldest son, she immigrated to the U.S. in 1981, starting a new chapter of her life in a new country. Shortly after, the rest of her 10 children immigrated to the U.S. and began their lives anew, as well. Sukhni was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. She leaves behind an incredible legacy of 11 children, 26 grandchildren, and 29 great-grandchildren.
