We are deeply saddened by the unexpected demise of one of our own, Sr John Sahya Rani (Sr Rani). She was 51 years old and had served the larger society as a Sister for 29 years. Sr Rani was the finance administrator of St Luke’s Hospital, Shrirampur, Maharashtra, and was part of the leadership team that was caring for COVID patients for several months. In addition to her responsibilities in St Luke’s hospital, Sr Rani was also a Board Member of the CHAI Western Region.

She belongs to the congregation of the Sisters of Charity of St Anne, Mumbai Province, and is originally from Trichy, Tamil Nadu, the fourth of five sisters in her family.
