Pouce Coupe dedicates lane name to community builder Sukrit Parmar

Unveiling of Sukrit Parmar Lane.

Thursday was a day to celebrate the life and work of Sukrit Parmar.

The Village of Pouce Coupe gathered Thursday afternoon for the unveiling of Sukrit Parmar Lane – in recognition of her community building.

Son Vinay and grandson Rayman were on hand along with extended and community family.

Vinay said the day was a celebration.

"It is about the lifetime of work and charity work in Pouce Coupe," he said.

From a practical point of view – the village fire chief Blair Deveau said the naming of the lane helps first responders in navigating a lane previously without a name.

Before coming to Canada in 1966 she received her Teaching Degree and in 1967 School District #59 hired her and she taught for 36 years in a variety of roles.  Parmar sponsored many children through World Vision and initiated the Pouce Coupe Food Bank, sitting on many committees.She was also an entrepreneur of several businesses in both Dawson Creek and Pouce Coupe.  The opening of her restaurant Curry Et Cetera was a lifelong dream of hers.
