She was well known in the rural areas she served as a teacher with endless devotion to the children she taught. Ananda and Dharmasiri remember the free classes she conducted every year at their home to prepare students for the Government Fifth Standard Scholarship examination. Listening to what she taught the children in the verandah while playing in the yard were the first lessons that Ananda and Dharmasiri learnt that made them brilliant students later in their lives. This scholarship is established as a small gesture to commemorate a courageous and compassionate mother and a devoted teacher to thousands of children who benefited from her teaching.
