Obituary for ANN JEVIZIAN

Ann Jevizian peacefully passed away in her home on December 19, 2018, with her family present. Born in Detroit on January 26, 1927, she was the daughter of Sahag and Mary (nee Jundigian) Jevizian. Growing up in the warm Armenian community of Delray, Ann was active in school sports. Graduating from Southwestern High School, she had been on the swimming team, the basketball team and later became an excellent tennis player.

After WWII began in 1941, her brother, Dr. Edward Jevizian, joined the US Army Air Corps as a flyer. Ann’s interest in airplanes blossomed. She took flying lessons and became a Cadet in the local Civil Air Patrol unit, an official volunteer organization of the US Air Force. Her patriotism was unmatched as she helped the CAP in their Homefront duties.

In 1946, she applied for a job at the National Bank of Detroit. Working hard, she became a Teller. Due to her expertise and loyalty, Ann became a Branch Manager, serving in several branches. As the years passed, NBD became Chase Bank and Ann was promoted to the position of Assistant Vice-President of the bank.

Ann became a prominent member of the Southwest Businessmen’s Association. To help support her community, she also joined the local Lion’s Club. Her talents were unlimited. Even while working in the bank, she purchased and operated an Ira Wilson Ice Cream & Dairy store. Ann proved her entrepreneurial skills in two different fields of business at the same time.

Faithful to her heritage, Ann was a long-time member of St. Sarkis Armenian Apostolic Church. Active in the Ladies’ Guild, Ann helped for many weeks during the year to prepare for the church’s Annual Bazaars. Because of her leadership abilities, she was elected Chairwoman of the St. Sarkis Board of Trustees. In addition to her donations to the church, she went above and beyond with her support. She also sponsored needy orphaned children in Armenia.

A family oriented woman, she was philanthropic and generous with open hands and a humble heart, seeking no accolades.

In her leisure time, Ann enjoyed going to the casino. Her complete enthusiasm for sports was prominent as she also became an avid golfer. But, her loyalty was to the Detroit Lions, as she rarely missed a game in person, or TV. The University of Michigan was second to none for her. She even traveled to California to be present in the Rose Bowl when the UM Football Team was playing.

Above all else, she was primarily dedicated to her family, her siblings, many nieces and nephews, cousins and friends. Attaining the role as a Great-great Aunt, this remarkably successful, tactful and thoughtful lady leaves all a legacy of love and devotion.

Dedicated daughter of the late Sahag and the Late Mary (nee Jundigian) Jevizian.
Beloved sister of the late Virginia (the late Kegham) Megregian, Dr. Edward Jevizian and the late Vartkes Jevizian.
