uncles and 6 aunts.
Phoolan was heartbroken that she was denied an education, not being told about her parents and

grandchildren: Kimberly and Ryan; Ashley (NanKumar) and Aaron; Teg and Surina; Jason and Natalie;
and Jordon and Alex.
Phoolan valued education and instilled this among other values on her family. In addition, she went back
to school in her 50s and 80s for a GED. She was astute, witty, organized, clean, neat and took pride in
her appearance. In addition, she loved all her those who came to know her and visa versa. She enjoyed
cooking, gardening (fruits, vegetables, flowers), flower arrangements, art and music. Phoolan was
detailed oriented. She always wanted to learn how to play the piano and learned to play the key board
at age 88 years.
Phoolan worked very hard from sunrise to sunset in Trinidad with her husband to build her empire while
raising 8 children. This work ethics stayed with her into her Golden years. She sang “You are my
Sunshine” to all her babies. She loved her doctors, nurses and other care providers. In 1978, Phoolan
loss her husband, a son and a grandson. She persevered, and was extremely independent as a widow as
well as a private person. Phoolan lived independently in Trinidad for about 25 years and designed the
addition to her home.
Phoolan was graceful, elegant and took great pride in her appearance. She chose to live with her
daughter Radhika Nandlal and son-in-law Richard LaRonde in Branford CT for the last 4 years of her life.
