MRS ANNABELLA CHRISTIE DORAISAMY (picture in centre), wife of the late Bishop Emeritus Dr T. R. Doraisamy, passed away on Jan 27, 2004 at the age of 80.

She was the daughter of Mr J. D. Christie of Seremban and studied at the ACS Seremban where she was active in the life of the school. Completing her studies in 1940, she married the future Bishop on July 12, 1941 and narrowly escaped the Japanese Occupation of Singapore, and spent the intervening years at Nagercoil, Tamil Nadu, where her husband had been born.

Returning to Singapore after the war, she prepared to teach by taking the Normal Certificate course. She taught at Fairfield (Methodist) Girls’ School from 1957 to 1960, and then at Anglo-Chinese Junior School (Barker Road) from 1961 to 1979. She also served the Church as President of the Tamil Provisional Annual Conference (TPAC) WSCS from 1968 to 1973.

Mrs Doraisamy is mourned by her four children, Dr Daphne Prema, Christine Padhma, Pauline Heima and Michael Rabindran, and seven grandchildren.
