“To everything, there is a season, a time for every
matter under heaven; a time to be born,
and a time to die; a time to plant,
and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away.”
In loving memory of Marina Niranjala Jeeva Ratnam (known affectionately as Niri) who entered glory peacefully on 31st October 2018 surrounded by family and friends after an illness fought with courage and determination. A devoted and much-loved mother to Ian (Sherran) and a loving mother-in-law to Monika. A dearly loved sister, sister-in-law, aunt, niece, cousin and godmother; and a much-cherished friend who will be greatly missed.
The Funeral Service will take place at 1:45 pm on 15th November 2018, at Trinity Baptist Church, Broadway in Bexleyheath, followed by the Committal at Eltham Crematorium. Those who wish are welcome to join the family afterwards at the Bexleyheath Marriott Hotel for a celebration of Niri's life.
No floral tributes by request. Those who desire may make memorial donations in memory of Niri to Footprints, Sri Lanka via Pearl of Hope (http://www.pearlofhope.org.uk). This is a cause close to Niri's heart which she supported for many years.
