KOHAR, Prabjot “Prab”

June 6, 1993 — August 18, 2021

In Loving Memory of Prab Kohar.

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Prabjot “Prab” Kaur Kohar announce her passing on Wednesday, August 18, 2021, while surrounded by family in Vancouver, BC.

Prab is a beloved daughter, sister, cousin, niece, dog mom, and elementary school teacher.

Born on June 6, 1993, to Sarbjit and Ranjit Kohar, Prab was raised and lived in Kelowna, BC.  She attended Springvalley Elementary School; Springvalley Middle School; Rutland Senior Secondary; and attended UBC Okanagan for both her Bachelor’s of Arts and Bachelor of Education degrees.  Prab was passionate about giving back to her community of Rutland and continued to do so in her career as a teacher, at her very own elementary school, Springvalley.

Prab was a compassionate, loyal, and selfless person who radiated love and positivity.  Prab was adored by all the lives that were lucky to meet, interact with, and know her.

Prab is survived by her parents; her younger siblings, Tania and Vishall; her maternal grandparents Balbir and Harjinder Randhawa; her paternal grandparents Gurdev and late Joginder Kohar, as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

As well, Prab will be deeply missed by her dog, Astro; dear friends; School District 23 colleagues; and the endless elementary school students who were lucky to have “Ms. K” as their teacher.

    Dear Kohar family,
    I met Prab when she was a teacher candidate in our BEd program at UBCO. In recent years, Prab was a mentor teacher for our current teacher candidates and it was delightful to reconnect and work with her and her candidates at Springvalley. Prab was a talented educator who taught with grace, compassion, wisdom and kindness. She created a beautiful classroom community where everyone- students, colleagues, and visitors- felt welcome and valued. It was an honour to know her.
    My sincerest condolences,
    Anne MacLean

    Dearest loved ones of Prab.
    She was the most beautiful person inside and out, she radiated love everywhere she went. We went to high school together, but became close over working together for multiple years at la senza. I loved her quirky humour, never in my life have I met someone so pure and full of light. But also equally hilarious and mischievous. We had planned to get together soon and I am sad to have missed that chance. I want to send my deepest love to her family, I am thinking of you all at this time. It was a great honour to have gotten to known her beautiful self and I hope you all are proud of everything she was and continues to be 🤍🕊

    Dearest loved ones of Prab,
    I first met Prab in Kindergarten, I have memories of picture day and we would be beside each other, sneaking into each others photos when they were taken. In high school, we would talk about this and laugh about how many photos were taken with just one of our heads in the photos. Prab and I recently re-connected and planned on getting together to catch up with each other, that’s when she told me she was teaching in the same elementary classroom that we were in and how it looked almost the exact same. I missed the opportunity to spend time with Prab again. She was such a loving and kind person with an infectious smile that could light up the room. I’ll cherish those memories.
    My sincerest condolences.

    Dear Kohar family and loved ones,

    I was lucky enough to have been placed with Prab for my 2021 teacher candidacy. During my time with Prab, she showed me what it means to be an exceptional teacher, mentor, friend, and human being. She also showed me that it is okay to have bad days, it is okay to have fun, and it is okay to love with all your heart. Throughout my candidacy, I was consistently astonished by how much Prab’s students and colleagues looked up to her and valued her as a teacher and confidant. I thank you all for being a part of nurturing such an influential person in my life, and I intend to carry all that Prab has taught me into my future teachings and throughout my life.

  • Jaime Vandergronden says:

    On behalf of Ms. Kohar’s final class of kids taught, we (as parents and your students) are gutted to hear of your passing. No longer are we going to hear of the fun dance parties and movie days you threw in class. Instead they are now only filled with memories of the times you shared together. My son has lost his mentor, the one who taught him how to read and how to be a “mathematician”. He is convinced you will be watching down on all your students.
    Rest in paradise Ms.K “the best teacher ever”
    – Brayden and all his friends

  • Talor Osberg says:

    Prabjot you are so so loved and missed! Sending a big hug to all your family members. We first met in middle school, such an awkward time for everyone. And you were so fun, kind and funny. So many giggle shared and you made me feel welcome, and that I could genuinely be myself. I am still shocked you are gone.
    All my love, Talor

    Dearest Kohar Family & Loved Ones,
    Prab was a vibrant, artistic and free-spirited soul. As child, she was kind, smart and an energetic little girl who loved to hang on the monkey bars upside down. I was privileged enough to have met Prab on my first day of grade one in a brand new school. She welcomed me with open arms and quickly became my first friend turned into best friend. We both shared a love for food and introduced one another to items that quickly became our favorites. Lunches would always be packed for two, I enjoyed a veggie hot dog while she devoured a chutney and cheese sandwich. Uniquely, Prab left a footprint on my heart. At merely 6 years old she played a role in shaping my journey, leaving an everlasting memento. I was lucky enough to have found that special human who put my needs before hers and would constantly look out for me. We began our journey in grade one and were able to be a part of each others live until grade twelve. As the years passed we did grow apart, however, the love and bond we cemented in our early years did not ever fade. We had planned to reconnect and I am very sad that I have now lost that opportunity. The legacy Prab has left behind is unforgettable. The amount of laughter and joy she was able to provide in everyone’s live is unprecedented. I am so very sorry for your loss, the world has truly lost the most beautiful soul. Rest in paradise Prab, I love you.

  • Joey Vecchio says:

    Mrs. Kohar,
    I hope one day your tears will pause long enough for you to read all of the beautiful condolences that show how everyone loved and appreciated what an extraordinary girl Prab was and how she was a positive ray of sunshine to everyone she met.
    I hope you can feel warm inside knowing you were the most important person in her life and with your love and devotion you raised her to be extraordinary.
    I pray that God gives you the strength to survive the horrible pain of separation from your baby.
    You are Prab’s beloved mother and she will always be with you. Always.
    I send you warm hugs,
    Joey Anne Vecchio

    My son, William, along with his father and I had the privilege of knowing Ms.Kohar through Springvalley elementary school. She was William‘s kindergarten AND grade 1 teacher. Ms. Kohar was and always will be the kind of person that you are so relieved to find out she is leading your child in learning. She was so amazing with our son, as he constantly told me “ms.kohar is in my heart”. She will be forever remembered by our family as the woman who changed my sons life. Best wishes to the family and our very sincere condolences for your loss.
