I just saw in The Hindu today that V Rajalakshmi aged 94 passed away on 16th April 2016. Smt V Rajalakshmi is the mother of Cleveland V V Sundaram . It is mentioned that Smt Rajalakshmi is wife of Late V S Venkatasubramony (Retd deputy collector). Condolences to Shri V V sundaram and his brothers and sisters (8 children names are mentioned), their extended family.
Sincere condolences.

Condolences to the family. When I met VVS in Cleveland recently when I enquired about his mother(who is related to our family) and about his wife Gomathy.He said Gomthy could not come because she had to take care of his mother. I asked him what his return plans are.he said he has to get back ASAP and was planning to leave USA on April 8th or so which I presume he did.. It seems God made it possible for him to be around his mother(he is the eldest). What a damper it would have been to him if it had occurred during the festival.
I visited her on my last visit-she was a very genuinely affectionate elderly lady--typical of their generation. Her elder sister-in her late nineties is also under the care of VVS and Gomathy. VVS's uncle who lived till his early nineties who passed away just a few years back was also being looked after by VVS/Gomathy. Whenever we visited them my wife used to joke to Gomathy that she has the best experience of managing an elder home.

The couple and the whole family are a shining example of inter-generational comity and duty and service to the community.

May her soul rest in peace!!

Condolences to VVS & family.
MKR is right in saying that it was providential that VVS managed to be with his mother at her last moments.

May her soul rest in peace. She has been ailing for quite sometime, from what I know.Even last year, I was hoping that her end would not come during the Cleveland Aradhana.

She made sure she did not disrupt the festival, or the gods did!

Matriarch of a music-loving family, a hospitality-extending family. Someone who would live on in her descendants' deeds in that...
