Dr. (Mrs.) Christabel Selvaranee Arumainayagam (born September 11, 1932) beloved wife of the late Dr. Ariaratnam Arumainayagam, loving mother of Christopher and Allen, mother-in-law of Shalini and Gunasithirakala, beloved grandmother of Christine and Michael, sister of Dr. Joy Canagarajah, the late Rajan Gunasegaram, and the late Bala Gunasegaram, passed away peacefully on May 28, 2022. While she was a trailblazer for women doctors in Sri Lanka, faith in God and prayer were central to her daily life, and she would, without fail, pray individually for dozens of family members and friends scattered around the World. Her mission in life went far beyond ensuring the best possible education for her two sons. Her life of extraordinary sacrifice was exemplified by unwavering service, both medical and otherwise, to family, friends, and strangers. Her acts of kindness knew no bounds. In the midst of many trials and tribulations, she found solace in her deep and abiding love of God. May her soul rest in peace.
