Former Holy Cross Librarian, Kaumudi Parikh Passes Away

Miss Kaumudi Parikh, librarian at Waterbury Catholic High School and Holy Cross High School from 1972 until her retirement in 2002, passed away unexpectedly on February 8, 2018 while on a visit to her family home in the Republic of India. In accordance with Hindu customs, her remains were cremated in India and her ashes were scattered on the sacred Ganges River. A Memorial to honor Kaumudi will be held in Connecticut on March 3rd. Out of recognition of Kaumudi's concern for others rather than herself, her family asks that any memorial donations be made in her name to a charity of the person's choice.
