elevated 9yEYI July 19th, 1936- March 9th 2024

elevated 9yEYI Leena Kurian was born on July 19, 1936 in Calcutta, India. This city is called Mother Teresas’s city of refuge. She passed away on March 9, 2024 in Mississauga, Canada after a rapid decline in her health. Leena was 87 years of age. Leena is survived by her only child and son Jeffrey Kurian, wife Natasha Kurian and grand daughter Zoya Kurian. Jeffrey and his family have been living in Ontario, Canada since 2000. Leena moved to Canada to live with her son and family in 2006.

Leena was the eldest of seven siblings. She leaves behind her brothers, Ian D’Cruz (wife Angel D’Cruz and children Ashley, Angie and Natalie), Edwin D’Cruz (late wife Mearl D’Cruz and children Fenella and Venessa), sister Janet Paul (husband Keith Paul, children Mark, Christine and Dolly) and sister Violet Nainsukh (late husband Albert Nainsukh, children Prisilla, Richard and Caroline). Leena was predeceased by her brothers: Augustine D’Cruz (wife Cecilia D’Cruz and children Rosalind, Cabrini, Angelo) and Leon D’Cruz (wife Leela D’Cruz and children their late son Leslie, and surviving son Lyn). Leena married her husband Joseph Kurian in 1965 after they met via a pen pal connection. Joseph left Leena to depart to his heavenly abord in July 2005.

Leena had a natural ability to make friends and hold on to those relationships. She leaves behind several friends in Canada and India, several extended family members from her side and her husband’s side who dearly loved her. They will miss her authentic nature and compassionate heart. Leena cared deeply for people without judging anyone in her circle of influence. Even at the end of her life she found a way to smile and laugh. Leena enjoyed her life with her family and treasured her relationships. We love you, Leena.
