Celebrating Life and Legacy of Mrs. Usha Mahrjan

Celebration of Life and Legacy of Mrs. Usha Devi Maharjan 
No tribute could ever come close to adequately describing 
Mrs. USHA DEVI MAHARJAN.

Mentor, friend, wife, grandmother,great grandmother—Usha lived a life of many roles and with many talents. 
Born in Nepal 88 years ago, Mrs. Maharjan would ultimately become one of the most-beloved and well-respected person in Pulchowk. We call her an “Unofficial Mayor of Pulchowk”. She was the pillar of the community and family.

She was not educated, however, she managed to send her two sons to China and USA to study. She admitted her grand kids and great grant kids to St. Xavier and St. Mary school and helped many underprivileged children to get into St. Xavier school and other schools in Patan. 

Helped many local people financially and motivating people in the community to do better by giving her life example.

In 1960 she worked in China with the Nepalese Ambassador Mr. Keshar Bahadur KC and took her elder son along with the family to study in China.

In 1972 she managed to send her 15 year old son to America to study.


Even though she was not a Rotarian she lived by Rotary’s 4 way test.

1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all?

While her notoriety was great and her accolades numerous, for many in the community, she was a mentor. Approachable and authentic, Mrs. Maharjan was available to community people to help anyway possible. 


We are celebrating her Life and Legacy by creating a Memorial scholarship at her favorite St. Xavier School. 

May she REST IN PEACE.
