Her funeral service will be held at 11:00 am on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 at March Life Tribute Center, 7601 Sandy Spring Rd, Laurel, MD 20707. Mrs. Raj K. Sharma, known as ‘Mummi Ji’ by her children and grandchildren, was born in Banga, Punjab India on February 15, 1937. She was married to Amrit L. Sharma on July 1, 1963; they were married for 57 years. Her husband was a Captain in the Indian Army, and while he was deployed, Mummi Ji raised two sons, Kapil and Gulshan, and two daughters, Urmil and Kusam, whom she was always proud of. Mummi Ji grew up with one older sister and four younger brothers; she is survived by her younger brother. She also had two daughter-in-laws, Rashmi and Ekta. Mummi Ji had an extraordinary life and leaves behind a lasting legacy. She worked as a primary school teacher in India for 21 years where she taught her students both academics and kindness. Being a teacher was more than a profession for her; it was her passion. Mummi Ji left a remarkable impression on all of her students and many still kept in touch with her. Mummi Ji came to the United States on August 15, 1992, and made her home in Germantown, Maryland. Here she lived with her husband, Amrit, son, Gulshan, daughter-in-law, Ekta, and four grandchildren, Esha, Neha, Ajay and Samir. Hearing the sounds of her grandchildren playing filled Mummi Ji’s heart with joy. In total, she had twelve grandchildren that she loved deeply: Richa, Mahesh, Angela, Rajan, Shelly, Rajesh, Priyal, Rohit, Esha, Neha, Ajay, and Samir. She also had two grand-daughter-in-laws, Steffi and Chahat, whom she loved dearly. Mummi Ji was a kind wife, loving mother, caring sister, and the best grandmother in the world. No one who met Mummi Ji could ever forget her infectious smile, cute laugh, warm hugs, kind and gentle soul. Everywhere she went, she bestowed her blessings upon others. She will forever be in our hearts. The Sharma family thanks all of her family and friends for joining us in celebrating her life. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to Assa Mai Temple at 230 Awkard Ln, Silver Spring, MD 20905.
