We Remember


April 24, 1960 — March 8, 2023

Aisha Ravindran passed away on March 8, 2023, in the presence of her husband, Brendan, and her close friend, Sherry. Aisha was born in Kerala, India, where she completed her PhD in English Literature based on the poet Muriel Rukeyser. She taught at St. Theresa’s College, Kerala as an Assistant Professor, then moved to the UAE to teach at MAHE Manipal University, followed by George Mason University and the American University of Ras Al Khaimah. She migrated to Canada in 2014 to complete a PhD in Education (which she planned on defending in the Summer/Fall of 2023) at Simon Fraser University and was also an Associate Professor of Teaching at University of British Columbia – Okanagan campus. She touched the lives of many that she interacted with, from her colleagues and her students to the many friends she made around the world. Her work as an educator was central to her motivation in life. She never shied away from taking on challenges and met them with gusto and drive. Such was also the case when she became ill with cancer; her will to live and achieve her dreams were her strength and motivation to carry out her activities despite her struggle with her illness. She will be missed by her husband, her mother, niece, her extended family, as well as by her colleagues and friends.

Her family is grateful to her GP, Dr Zeits Hendriks; her oncologist Dr. Sanjay Rao; the nurses and staff at the BC Cancer division of Kelowna General Hospital; and the community nurses at Interior health for their various contributions in helping alleviate her illness.

Any donations may be made to the BC Cancer Foundation and specifically directed to pancreatic cancer research.

A private cremation ceremony was held on March 18, 2023, to honour Aisha.

    It is with a very heavy heart filled with much sorrow after getting the unpleasant Whatsapp messages of Her demise from her beloved husband Mr. Brendan. I have known Ma’am for short while back in the UAE where I worked as her cleaner some time ago around 2012 but the memory of her kindness and concern has never escaped my mind. “she was a lovely person”. we later lost contact and after about 10 years of trying to know her where about, I bomb into an email address she ones gave me and I wrote to her which she promptly replied my email with so much joy to have gotten to hear again from me. she asked for my phone contact which I gladly gave to her and we kept the link since I am now in my country Cameroon. She one day told me her health situation which kept me so worried but instead she asked me not to be worried but to keep praying for her to remain strong which of course I have never gone a day without doing this which I promised to 🙏. Today is a very sad day for me😥😭, but one thing I am certain of is that, SHE IS IN A BETTER PLACE. Her memory will live forever in our hearts. I will forever remember you in my time of prayer until we shall meet again😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭.


    I loved her (AISHA REVENDRAN )because, she was the sister of my sister DEEPA’S late husbend MR. ASOK REVEENDRAN….. WE LOVE ASOK and AISHA
