In Loving Memory of
Alexandra Diengdoh Pavel
After almost two years of battling two aggressive cancers, Alex passed away on 17th May 2021 at the age of 29.
Throughout her life Alex has been cherished and loved by her friends, colleagues and family for her humour, wit, compassion, understanding and down-to-earth approach to life and death.
She was known for her wicked sense of humour till the last days, always posting inspirational quotes such as “I must not fear, fear is the mind killer”. Her rules of engagement were no pity, no bombardment of questions but she welcomed dark jokes at her expense.
Her strong will and determination to fight the dreadful disease by all means included in her last moments, a virtual experience of the ocean or a sail ship, a room spray that smells of the sea and a feast for the senses.
She was an accomplished writer, has published a book of short stories and comics, currently working on a novel in a series of six to seven. She was also a talented artist and a gifted musician, playing the piano, duitara (traditional Khasi instrument), violin and guitar.
Above all she was ever ready to support those in need from helping Mother Theresa’s nuns in St Petersburg with cooking and feeding the old and sick to other activities such as victim support and providing moral support and comfort to friends.
Alex left a huge void in our lives and shattered our hopes and dreams.
Rest in peace our beloved angel, we will be together again in a better world.
