March 1, 1948 ~ July 7, 2021 (age 73)


Carol Frances Janigian passed away July 7, 2021 in Northville, Michigan.  Born March 1, 1948, she was the daughter of Sam and Paulette (nee Videcoq) Ingesoulian. As she was growing up, Carol was very active in her school years. Athletically, she excelled in the Synchronized Swim Club and also ran track. With an alert mind, Carol took active part in the Debate Team. Her human side shined in several stage plays with the Theater Group. With her devout belief and love of Jesus, Carol was always close to the church and was a member of the Armenian Church Youth Organization of America.

After graduating from Thurston High School, she felt the need to help the sick and disadvantaged health patients. Carol studied nursing at Wayne State University and subsequently earned her Associates Degree from Schoolcraft College. She proudly became a coveted licensed practical nurse (LPN), who are noted for their care of the sick, injured, convalescent and disabled. It was a perfect fit for Carol, as she helped to treat patients in doctors' offices, nursing homes, but  most of all patients in Botsford Hospital.

As the saying goes, it all starts at home. Carol was first the caring angel for her family at home. She loved her family and was a big champion for the kids. Anytime or anywhere help was needed, Carol was the first to reach out to help. This year marks the 50th anniversary of her marriage to Jan. With love in her heart, the family enjoyed many years of travels and camping trips together, while they shared her amazing cooking skills in delicious family dinners. 

Carol's devotion to serve, with faith in the Lord, shows how she would bravely step out of her comfort zone to always help others. May she rest in peace.
