January 7, 1932 ~ June 24, 2021 (age 89) 89 Years Old


         Minnie Shoushanian peacefully passed away June 24, 2021, in her home in Farmington Hills, Michigan. Minnie (Mannig) Mooradian was born January 7th, 1932, in Detroit, Michigan. Her parents were Arshag and Satenig (nee Aslanian) Mooradian. Growing up in the Armenian community of Delray, she attended Cary Elementary School and graduated from Southwestern High School, where she had played basketball and had earned a Letter Sweater in Fencing.

          Upon graduating from high school, she worked in accounting at Revere Copper and Brass.

          She married Charles Shoushanian June 4th, 1955, and they were blessed with the birth of two daughters, Suzan and Denise.

         Minnie, always involved in her community, was an active member of the ARS Sybille chapter and, as a teacher, she taught Sunday School at St. Sarkis Armenian Apostolic Church. Additionally, Minnie had an innate  sense of the beauty in life, so she furthered her appreciation of it by earning a degree in interior decorating from La Salle University.


Minnie is survived by her daughter Suzan and son in law Dr. John Zazaian;  Grandchildren Dr.Danielle and Alexander Zazaian, Chase Shoushanian-Traphagen (James Edayan Jr.), and many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.


A private service will be held with final resting place next to her late husband, Charles, in Oakland Hills Memorial Gardens, Novi, MI. 


The family suggests that Memorial Donations be sent to St. Sarkis Armenian Apostolic Church, 19300 Ford Road;  Dearborn, MI 48128
