Sosamma Skariah was born in Kalluthra House, Vallamkulam, India, as the daughter to the late K.M. and Mariamma Varughese, on September 23, 1944. Throughout her life, she radiated joy and touched the hearts of all who knew her. Sosamma was a woman of grace and resilience, facing life's challenges with a quiet strength that inspired those around her.
She graduated from St. John's High School, Eraviperoor, and pursued her nursing studies at Tirth Ram Hospital, in Delhi, India. After completing her studies, she relocated to Zambia (Africa) to work as a nurse. She returned to India to marry K.S. Mathew (Kuttiyil, Pullad) on February 8, 1975. Together, they moved to Chicago, Illinois (USA), to start a new life.
In 1985, the family relocated to Dallas, Texas. She worked primarily as a Registered Nurse at Medical City Dallas for 28 years. Her passion for nursing was evident in her commitment to care. Her compassion knew no bounds, which she brought to every aspect of her life-always smiling and ready to lend a helping hand to those in need. Her acts of kindness left a mark on the lives of those she served.
Sosamma was actively involved with the church. Her life was a testament to the transformative power of her faith in Jesus Christ. Her days were marked by kindness, humility, and a deep sense of devotion to her Lord. She celebrated her faith as a member of St. Paul's Mar Thoma Church of Dallas. Sosamma's faith extended beyond her immediate family, encompassing a wide circle of relatives and friends who were touched by her grace.
Sosamma is survived by her devoted husband of 48 years, K.S. Mathew. Together, they shared a lifetime of love, companionship, and a spiritual partnership. Her memory will be further cherished by her children-Joanna and Joe Skariah, along with her daughter-in-law Brandie Skariah, and her precious grandchildren, Mathew and Madison Skariah. She is also survived by her sister, Aleyamma Geevarghese, and brother, Mathew Varughese.
As we mourn the loss of our beloved sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, we find comfort in the knowledge she is now in the presence of her Lord and Savior, where pain and sorrow are no more. May her soul rest in eternal peace.
