1951 to 2020
It is with great sadness that the family of Chandra Angle announces her recent passing at the age of 69.
She will be deeply missed by her husband Randy of 49 years and her children Daryan (Jill), Trisha (Serge), and Kiri (Brad); by her grandchildren Poesy, Astrid, and Sullivan; by her brother Gwabal, her sisters Phulmattie, and Coomtie; by her nieces and nephews; and by her many friends and relatives.
Our Chandra was a lifelong learner. Her educational journey began after she completed her A-levels in Trinidad, her country of birth. Driven by a strong thirst for knowledge Chandra then moved to Alberta where she completed first an Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry, followed by a Master of Science degree in Mineral Engineering and a PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology, United Kingdom.
In addition to her formidable academic achievements, Chandra had an esteemed 40-year professional career doing energy-related research for the Government of Canada. She authored over 130 publications and reports, 7 book chapters, 2 reviews, and delivered over 107 oral presentations at meetings and conferences worldwide. In recognition of her contributions to Canada she received the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal.
A shining example of strength, Chandra achieved all of these professional and academic successes while simultaneously raising three children and creating a loving home.
Even in retirement, Chandra continued to learn and develop herself. Pursuing her passion for spirituality and creativity she became a yoga instructor, took up drawing, painting and jewellery-making. She enjoyed gardening, going for walks, talking with her many loved ones, and reading stories to her grandchildren.
Many thanks go out to her nieces and nephews Sasha, Deepa (Avinesh), and Nadira (Amit) for their help and guidance in the last few difficult weeks.
Close family will attend a Funeral Service at 10:00 am on Friday, November 20 at Country Hills Crematorium & Funeral Services in Calgary, Alberta.
Friends and colleagues are welcome to attend virtually. Please contact email@example.com for particulars.
