Sridevi writes from Finland with news of the death of Sumati, one of the elders of the Triratna Sangha in Finland.
She says - “This is to let you know that Dharmacharini Sumati, from Helsinki, Finland, has died. She was ordained by Bhante in 1977 or 1978 in Finland and was very active in the early years of the Helsinki centre, especially in translating many important Dharma texts into Finnish. Her younger son has been attending some classes in recent years and told us that she died on 18th October because a major bloodvessel burst in her abdomen. She was eighty and had been housebound for several years with various ailments. The family are organising her funeral”.
