Shobha Contractor Memorial Fund

A legacy of family, friends and devotion to social causes...

Soon to be established in March 2021, the Shobha Contractor Memorial Fund celebrates and honors the extraordinary life and legacy of Shobha Contractor.  The Fund will plan to endow a memorial scholarship in the name of Shobha Contractor at Hillsborough High School, as well make other annual grants to charities in Somerset County, focused on food insecurity, education and woman's issues.

Shobha was widely admired for her gracious spirit,  warm smile and generous personality.  Besides spending time with her family and friends, she was passionate about international travel, Bollywood movies and music, cooking, and national politics.

Shobha Contractor passed away on Friday, March 5, 2021 near her home in Hillsborough, NJ where she lived with her family for over 39 years.  She was 77.

She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Kanti Contractor, and 2 children:  her son Ashish Contractor and his wife Amy Lung Contractor, and her daughter Kavita Contractor Morris and her husband Jason Morris; and her five grandchildren, Austin Contractor, Aiden Contractor, Adrian Contractor, Elijah Morris and Alisha Morris.

Shobha Contractor will be forever missed by everyone who knew her… and through her family, friends and this Memorial Fund, her legacy will live on.
