We Remember

KHURANA, Pritam Devi

September 4, 1936 — February 3, 2024

It is with great sadness that we share the peaceful passing of Pritam Devi Khurana, who left this Earth on the morning of February 3rd, 2024, in Edmonton, Alberta. Pritam, lovingly known as Maa Ji, is predeceased by her husband, Harbans Lal Khurana; her son, Tony Khurana; and her son-in-law, Tony Bajaj.

Maa Ji is survived by her siblings, Gyan Ahuja and Bimla Khurana; children, Balkrishan Khurana (Shavinder Khurana), Kamlesh Bajaj (Subhash Bajaj), Ashok Khurana (Sarita Khurana), Jim Khurana (Seema Khurana), Asha Bajaj, Sweeta Monga, and Sean Khurana (Babita Khurana); daughter-in-law Anu Khurana; twenty grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren who all absolutely adored her.

Maa Ji was born in a small village in Tharaj, Punjab, India to Moolchand Ahuja and Parsinno Devi Ahuja, and had 7 siblings. She enjoyed sewing, singing, dancing, and spending time outdoors with friends and family. Maa Ji immigrated to Merritt, British Columbia, Canada in 1981, and moved to Edmonton, Alberta shortly after that. She worked tirelessly with her husband to provide her children and grandchildren with an amazing life, including working at the Edmonton International Airport, Versa Foods, making samosas and spice blends for the farmer’s market, and much more.  As Maa Ji got older, she continued to expand her hobbies, including knitting, crocheting, gardening, and joining in on the occasional TikTok dance.

Maa Ji lived her life to the fullest, never missing a moment to laugh, sing, or dance with her loved ones. She inspired everyone around her to be a little kinder, give a little more, and love a little harder. She treated everyone she met as family and extended her love to those who needed it most. She trusted faithfully in God for all 87 years of her life, and ultimately took her last breaths in perfect harmony with a final “Om” from the Bhagavad Gita.
