Please share your memories
There is no doubt that the same destiny awaits all of us, the only question is WHEN, not If, Where or How.
My mother may no longer be amongst us, but she will not be forgotten. She will continue to live in our hearts through the good memories she left us with.
Please share one or more of the memories she left you with, or write anything else you feel like writing.
If you have a photo you want to share, old or new, please email it to me at email@example.com.
I will put a selection of these memories and photos on this site for all friends and family to read and remember her
May Her Soul Rest In Peace
Many thanks to you all

We will never forget the wonderful days we had together in Damavand. We also had many wonderful days together in Tehran going to parks and other places. Lots of good memories and good times we spent together, which will never be forgotten.
Dr and Mrs Binesh
We will never forget her kindess, she was a lovely friend of mine. She has left great memories for me to look back on, the lovely times we spent together in Iran. The last time i spent a great amount of time with Mehry jan was in America, a memory i will never forget. She is dearly missed and will always be in my heart.
I miss my best friend.behesht jaigahash.
اخرين بارى كه مهرى جون را ديدم شبى در رستوران سنت دفن سال ١٣٨٩ دو مهرى ودو ميترا چهار نفر بوديم شب به يادماندنى روحش شاد يادش گرامى
Condolences to all the family members ...
I didn't have a chance to spend a lot of time with my mother-in-law Mehry (Maman - as I used to call her), but all her visits to England and our time in America, Austria and Iran were most enjoyable. We always spent time sight-seeing together, just doing everyday activities, laughing a lot and chatting about the past, mainly how naughty was Fash when he was a little boy. Well, not only when he was a boy. I remember one of our trips to London together. Maman, Baba, I and Fash walked along the South Bank where many human statues, singers, dancers and all sort of entertainers perform to collect some money from the tourists. They usually have a little stand where they perform their act. When we were passing by we saw one empty stand. It was just a little stall covered by a cloth and there was a small garland lying on top of it. It seemed that the owner of that stand went for a break and left everything as it was. Fash didn't think too long. He grabbed the garland and put it on his head and stood on the stand in a funny position with one leg up. Shortly a group of people surrounded him with me, Maman and Baba laughing our heads off. Then someone put a pound coin in Fash's pocket. I and Maman were in tears from laughing :-)
I also remember a lovely day we spent with Maman, Baba, Homa, Hooshang, Fardin, Elizabeth and Kian by the lake. It was a sunny day; with the blue sky, green vegetation and water reflecting all the colours, the view was stunning. We all walked around and then had a little BBQ and just chilled out and enjoyed the atmosphere. I made a head piece from flowers for Maman. She was laughing and I really like the picture of her taken at that time (it is included in the photo gallery of this page). For some reason when I think of Maman I remember her as in this picture: although already very unwell, but happy, hopeful, jolly and somehow careless and laid back as this beautiful sunny day by the lake.
When Maman use to come to England she had most of her luggage filled up with cooking ingredients, herbs, sweets and various unknown to me food items. She would then cook traditional Iranian dishes for us, which I have to say, were not always to my taste as I am used to less flavorful European cooking. One of the deserts Maman used to make was faludeh. It requires a lot of work and she was very proud to make it for us. When I tried it first time I didn't like it, it just wasn't 'my piece of cake'. I didn't want however to tell Maman that I don't like it as she put a lot of effort in making it, so I said that it is very nice. When Maman wasn't looking I changed glasses with Fash who already finished his drink, so when Maman looked again I had an empty glass and Fash's glass was still half full. She thought that I must have liked it very much as I drank it so fast and she brought me another serving of faludeh :-)
Maman was trying to teach me Iranian cooking, but I guess I am a hopeless case in that respect, so we often end up with the simple English food. Maman even brought for me from Iran a proper rice cooker and my first attempt to cook rice ended up with an enormous amount of rice overflowing from the cooker. I bagged and froze all that rice and I and Fash were eating it for months :-)
I remember I was complaining to Maman about Fash being very messy and collecting all sorts of things considered by me as rubbish. She was saying that she has an older model of the very same 'thing' - Baba, and we were joking about it a lot and competing whoes model is worse and which one of us is better of :-)
Maman was a beautiful woman and she took a very good care of herself to make sure she looks at her best. She always had a perfect make-up, manicure, pedicure; she was following various diets, putting some strange (smelly :-) ) oils on her hair. She was also using food as beauty treatment and you could see her sometimes at home with various fruits or vegetables on her face :-) She was a real woman. I remember that she brought few outfits to wear at our wedding and couple of days before the ceremony she was trying them on in front of me, my mother and my friend, and we all were deciding which one looks best. Finally she settled for two of them. After the church part of the wedding we all were waiting in front of the church to have a group picture taken. We realized that Maman is not present. We started looking for her and finally she appeared all happy and smiling, in her second outfit :-) She actually went to the Reverend and asked him if she can change quickly in one of the back rooms, so she can use both outfits and look gorgeous in the pictures. And so she did.
Maman was not only beautiful on the outside, but most importantly she was good-hearted, loving and giving. She always cared for other people, sometimes more than for herself. She was helping her friends and family whenever she could and she was always thinking of everyone else but herself. She was also very generous. I never forget a wonderful trip to Disney World she arranged for me, Farshid, Baba and Fardin's family. She was receiving chemotherapy at that time and didn't feel well enough to go with us, but wanted us to have this unforgettable experience and she was happy that we had a good time; that's a very unselfish act.
But the quality I admire in Maman most is her courage, strong will and determination; her ability to keep up hope even in the most difficult and hopeless times. She went in life through a lot, more than some people could possibly bare, but rather than dwelling on the past and pitting herself, she used to say that other people have worse traumas in their lives and she is just ok, she is grateful for everything she has. When she was diagnosed with cancer and was given very negative prognosis she decided not to believe doctors and was determined to beat the disease. And she did to some extend. She fought for a long time and overcame the biggest crisis while suffering from a severe infection couple of years ago. The doctors were not giving her any chances for survival, but she never lost her hope and seeing pictures of her beloved granddaughter just before going for a major operation gave her this extra strength to fight harder. She never lost hope and was making plans for future almost to the last day. She was bossing around everyone too :-) We all thought that this is a very good sign :-)
Undoubtedly Maman was a very strong and courageous woman, who set up example for all of us. She passed away surrounded by family and friends leaving a lot of good memories in our hearts. Her life journey reflects true Zoroastrians' values - being kind, spreading love, wishing everyone good and doing good.
God bless her soul.

Mehry jan I always remember the amazing Mehmoonies you had. From chilhood I remember all the great gatherings were at your residents or better yet at your baghe with the amazing swimming pool. I left Iran for 20 years and when I returned you threw a mehmooni for my arrival. It brought back grwat memories. One o which was seeing the ornaments of the Spanish Dancers in your living room. After 20 years I actually remembered fiddling with them as a child.
Mehry jaan, yadet hamisheh dar dele ma khahad bood. Tatilat akhare hafteh dar baghetoot hanooz az behtarin khaterate dorane teenagerie man hast. Ravanat shaad. Arezooye saabr baraye azizanat daram.
Atrem va family.
