Dahiben Patel, 96, of Manheim Township, Lancaster, PA, passed away June 4, 2023, at the age of 96. She was born in India February 5, 1927 and was the daughter of Madhabhai and Javerben Patel.

Dahiben Patel grew to become a woman who enjoyed many things in life. She was a great homemaker who lived in the US for 36 years with her sons in Lancaster, Florida and California. She attended Jalaram Mandir and was very adamant about reading religious books, especially in her native language.

Traveling and staying up to date on current world news were among some of her favorite things to do. But above all else, her ultimate favorite past time was spending time with her family and grandchildren. She treasured her family, and it made her happy to be around them.

Dahiben Patel leaves to cherish her memory her five sons: Dr. Harshadkumar (Sudahaben) Patel of Lancaster, Madhusudan B. Patel, of London, England, Girishchandra (Kalpana) Patel, of Canada, Yogendra (Jayshree) Patel, of California, and Bhasker (Bharti) Patel, of Florida, 10 grandchildren, and 14 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her daughter-in-law, Induben Patel, and her grandson Vijay Patel.

Dear Ba,
Thank you.
Thank you for your generosity, Thank you for always sharing your favorite chocolate, Kit Kat, with us whenever you bought it at the store
Thank you for always thinking of everyone else.  For having everyone’s birthday written down in your book and always calling to wish everyone in the family on their special day, no matter where you were 
Thank you for loving us unconditionally. For always asking us where we were in our lives. What we were studying, what our occupation was, and when we were getting married. And for never being disappointed in the answer, but for asking us to know, encourage, and support
Thank you for showing us the importance of family. For always reminding us to listen to our parents and for showing us your picture albums and showing us where we came from
Thank you for being our Ba, but more so, thank you for also being our friend. We love you very much
Rishin & Neera

Param Pujya Dahiba,
Jai Swainarayan. Pranaam.
You have left this mortal body and world but you will be immortal in the minds of all who were fortunate to have you in their lives. You were a proud parent who raised five sons that their spouses, children, grandchildren and friends are proud to have them in their lives. Your lamp of legacy have lit many more lamps.  Our Ottawa family in particular has benefited in all aspects of life by having friends that Kalpnaben and Girishbhai are to us. 
We pray for your eternal peace in God’s abode that is beyond time and space. 
We pray for strength and healing to Harshadbhai, Sudahaben, Madhusudanbhai, Girishbhai, Yogendrabhai, Jayshreeben, Bhaskerbhai, Bhartiben and the entire family.
