Surinder Mongia (Bhutani)
It is with profound sadness that the family of Surinder Mongia (Bhutani) of Oakton, Va., announces her peaceful passing on Saturday, April 23, 2022, at the age of 82.
She was born on June 15, 1939, in India, and was a proud resident of Jamestown, N.Y., for 44 years.
Mrs. Mongia was a loving woman with a truly generous heart. She was a joyful, caring person who touched the lives of all those that met her. She was a friend to all, welcoming many into her home as if it was their own and lovingly prepared the most delicious food. Her culinary talents were appreciated beyond friends and family and were recognized in newspapers.
Mrs. Mongia leaves her husband, children, and grandchildren with the knowledge that they were truly loved.
She is survived by Dr. Satish Mongia, her husband of 60 years; her son, Sanjay Mongia of Washington, D.C.; and her daughters: Sumedha Mongia married to Greg Fischer of Oakton, Va., and Nisha Mongia married to Mason Gasper of Providence, R.I. She is also survived by three siblings: Jagdish Bhutani, Urmil Minocha and Harish Bhutani. Mrs. Mongia was a loving grandmother to Arjun, Anika and Ranya Fischer of Oakton, Va., and Kinara and Kavi Gasper of Providence, R.I. She also leaves behind a host of nieces and nephews.
Mrs. Mongia was preceded in death by her father, Hukam Chand Bhutani, who died on Dec. 13, 2001, and her mother, Kundan Kaur Bhutani, who died on Nov. 8, 2014.
