Her 10 grandchildren Parisa, Shameem, Shawyon, Saba, Sana, Sama, Olivia, Tony, Lily, and Zane whom loved her dearly and enjoyed being around her.

She was dearly loved by everyone that have crossed her path.

Pari and her family left Iran as persecution of Baha’is caused  them many hardships. Pari lost her job of 10 years being a 5th grade teacher. They then went to another city to find jobs and to be closer to their family. 5 more years of hardships and they decided to leave Iran as their country did not give them freedom of religion, freedom of life and freedom of choice.

Pari almost lost her daughter as the result of their escape through the mountains of Zahedan first time.  They attempted their 2nd escape one year later. They stayed in Pakistan for 2 years to be able to come to the US.

They struggled with English and having to start a new life here when they arrived in 1986 was not easy.

Pari loved everyone, loved to cook and serve everyone in her path. She was happy and dancing all the time. She was very sensitive to the needs of others and hers was always placed last.

She truly believed in God and her faith kept her going during the most difficult times of her life.
