Gurdev Kaur, 103 of Livingston, passed away at her home early Sunday morning. She was born in Pakistan, married Rattan Singh, and they moved to India in 1947. Her family were farmers and Gurdev was a faithful wife, mother, and homemaker. A daily task for her was spinning cotton and making clothes and quilts out of the cotton they spun. The family moved to Livingston, California in 1978 after her husband passed away in 1964. As the family grew, Gurdev remained the faithful leader, cooking, maintaining the family, and caring for the grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her mind remained sharp and her health was excellent until a recent illness, which took her life. She will be fondly remembered and greatly missed.
