Congrats to All of You!

 

Dr. Chaya Venkat passed away on September 20, 2023, at her home in Rancho Mirage at the age of 74 (heart disease).  Chaya was born and educated in India—one of just 20 women in her class of 2,000 to earn a master’s degree in chemistry.   With her husband, P.C. Venkat, she emigrated to the U.S.A. where she received her PhD at the University of Michigan.  Her careers included teaching at Michigan and Princeton and a decades-long career at Mobil Oil where she was awarded 26 patents in areas of R&D. Shortly after her retirement in 2000, her husband was diagnosed with cancer, and Chaya’s focus became a supercharged quest to find him the best possible care.  Using the results of her research, she and P.C. founded CLL Topics as a non-profit patient education and patient advocacy website.  When P.C. passed away in 2008, Chaya retired again, and took up duplicate bridge. As a member of the Unit 533 Board, Chaya generously contributed to create and fund Unit 533's unique "WIN" Awards (Welcome Intermediate and Novice players), which awards free plays to our highest achieving newer players.   We join Chaya’s daughter and son-in-law and her many friends in mourning the loss of this remarkable woman.
