Dipika Rathod grove


DIPIKA RATHOD - dearly loved daughter, sister and friend to those who knew her

1966 to 2006

Dipika passed away at the end of September from a rare type of cancer - leiomyosarcoma.

Dipika had a great passion and enjoyed travelling, classical music concerts, the theatre, sports, reading, cooking, baking and spending time with her friends. She was always on the move and you hardly ever found her sitting at home. We were all very proud with the way she looked after her flat.

Dipika's guide dogs - Yoko, Pippa, Nash and Morris, all with individual characters have all been loyal companions in her life. Another passion of Dipika's was working in the studio and meeting readers, some of whom have become very close friends.

She was a kind, caring and loyal person. Always gave and encouraged others to live life to their fullest. She was always sincere and was there for you when you needed a shoulder to cry on. Dipika will be greatly missed. Dipika was cremated and her family placed her ashes into the English Channel at Brighton on the 29th November 2006 along with the ashes of her first Guide Dog, Yoko.
