Obituary for Caroline "Carol" Gosun

Caroline “Carol” May Gosun passed away in the loving care of her friends on March 1, 2017.

Born May 27, 1931 in Bronson, Michigan, Carol was one of seven children born to parents Elmer and Hattie Bowsman. Carol and her siblings were raised on farms in southern Michigan. She graduated from Hillsdale High School and continued her education, earning a Bachelor of Science degree from Eastern Michigan University. Carol spent most of her career as an administrative assistant at the Ford Motor Co.

Carol will be remembered for her sharp wit and humor. She was the true definition of an independent woman. At times she was a real pistol and spitfire. Colorful, feisty and eclectic, Carol was an accomplished pianist who had perfect pitch and could play "by ear.” She had a special appreciation for the simple things in life like a blooming flower or a bird's song.
As an avid reader of classic literature and contemporary novels, Carol had an extensive personal library. She appreciated fine art and adorned her home with watercolors, tapestry, and limited edition prints, figurines, and pottery. Carol had a passion for pearls and pearl jewelry— she was a Platinum member of JTV. Indoors, Carol loved her cats, listening to classical music, and watching the television show “Downtown Abbey;” out of doors, she loved gardening, horticulture and bird-watching.

Preceded in death by son Steven Gosun. Survived by son Edward and many nieces, nephews, friends and cats, Max and Georgie. Special gratitude to in-home health caregivers, Cindy P, Kathy P, Cindy S, Linda, Erin, Kym, and Jessica who gave her compassionate 24/7 TLC the last couple years of her life.

Memorial service/gathering Sunday 3/19 3:00pm. Food and refreshments will be served. Please contact Diane Gietzen-Jett for location and more information. She can be reached at 586-295-7070

Because Carol was a true animal lover and a generous donor to local and national animal charities, memorial contributions are encouraged in her name to: Humane Society of Huron Valley
