Ranjini Corea, wife of Vijaya Corea laid to rest on December 11th

Posted on 17 December 2014 by TSL

Ranjini Corea, wife of Vijaya Corea and mother of Viran and Sashika passed away peacefully at 5:30 in the morning of Wednesday, 10th December 2014 surrounded by family.

In keeping with her wishes, her mortal remains were laid at A. F. Raymond Funeral Parlour for the paying of respect and the funeral was held on the very next day (Thursday, 11th December 2014).

A service of thanksgiving for her life and work was held at the funeral parlour at 4:00pm, officiated by the Anglican Bishop of Colombo, Rt. Rev. Dhiloraj Canagasabey, assisted by Rev. Marc Billimoria. A message was shared by Pastor Colton Wickramaratne, who said that having associated Ranjini for many years both before and during her battle with cancer, he saw in her a great conviction, commitment and love for God and her family. He said, he witnessed in her true hope of eternal glory through Jesus Christ. The selection of hymns was picked, based on their special relevance to the significance of the occasion.

Thereafter, she was laid to rest in the family grave at the Jawatte Cemetery, where Pastor Tissa Weerasinghe expressed similar sentiments. At the time of her burial, the hymn "In The Sweet By And By (We Shall Meet On That Beautiful Shore)" was sung as she had requested, as a message from her especially to her husband, children and three sisters (Doris Wijesinghe, Nalini Perera and Anoja Jayawardhana). The final rites were conducted by Rt. Rev. Dhiloraj Canagasabey, Bishop of Colombo assisted by Rev. Melvin De Silva and Rev. Sunil Ferdinando.

Ranjini had faced and fully overcome colon cancer in 2010. In 2012, she was diagnosed with a primary breast cancer. Since 2010, she was actively but quietly involved in providing relief, assistance and comfort to sufferers of cancer and their families. She frequently gave thanks and glory to God, attributing her ability to face the challenges associated with cancer to the sustenance and hope of eternal life through her belief in Jesus Christ. She wanted this message made known to people in life, and in death – which to her, was a portal to eternal life.
