SARMISTHA’s Story

Site created on August 2, 2020

Welcome to Sarmistha Sens CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.  Please share your memories of our dear Sarmistha.



Sarmistha was born on January 2nd, 1977 in Sindri, India. Sarmistha grew up in Sindri and later moved to Bangalore, India for higher studies and work. Sarmistha got married to Arindam Roy and moved to Plano TX in 2004. She studied in UT Dallas and University of Birmingham, Alabama and worked on cancer research for most of her career. 

Sarmistha was an avid runner. She was an early riser and she liked to jog around the Chisolm trail every morning. On Saturday, Aug 1st, 2020 morning she went for her regular jogging and never came back home. She was brutally killed by a stranger for no apparent reason.

Along with her husband Arindam, Sarmistha has two little kids, Neil is 12 and Ryan is 6 years old. They recently also got a puppy named milly. Milly is only 3 months old.

Sarmistha lived a free and fearless life inspiring many with her infectious energy and carefree smile. Sarmistha was an avid runner, gardener and a great cook. She practiced healthy mindful living and she could cook extremely healthy food that tasted amazingly good. She was a trained singer of Indian classical music and loved to teach and perform music. She was passionate about cancer care and was a lifelong supporter of cancer research.  

We have setup a GoFundMe page that can be accessed from this CaringBridge website. The funds will be used for charities that are devoted to issues that Sarmistha deeply cared about such as Cancer Awareness, Cancer research and protection of environment.

Please note that if you use the “Donate to CaringBridge” link, the donation will go to CaringBridge for operation and maintenance of the website. While we encourage such donation, we wanted to note that such donation will not go towards Sarmisthas favorite charities.
