Christine Besson

In the evening of Sunday 25 September, our friend and sister Christine Besson left her body at Marika Home, where she had been taken two weeks ago as her struggle with lung cancer became critical. She was 65 years old.

Christine came from France to Auroville in 2008. Having worked in the Parisian banking world, her accounting skills were readily welcomed by the Financial Service where colleagues remember her as a kind and pleasant person to work with.

She moved into Vikas, where she lived an unobtrusive, reserved and solitary life. True to her lifestyle, she expressed the wish to have no visiting hours at Farewell after her passing. Her remains were cremated at the Auroville mandapam in the afternoon of Wednesday, October 28th.

Our warmest condolences go out to her mother and sister whom she visited every year.

Farewell, dear sister, thank you for having been with us.
