Carolyn L Fakouri


Carolyn Fakouri died on Feb. 7, 2019 with her family present. She was born to Michael and Caroline Hacker on April 19, 1939 and grew up on a farm in Naperville, Ill.
She graduated from the Augustana School of Nursing in Chicago and went on to earn a BSN and Ph D in nursing from Indiana University.
She met her husband, Ebrahim, at Indiana University and they both joined the faculty at Indiana State University in 1966.
Carolyn was blessed with a loving family who inspired her to keep on learning throughout her adult life. As a nursing professor, she appreciated the many students she had the opportunity to know and was honored to receive the Caleb Mills teaching award in 1985. In retirement she enjoyed traveling, book clubs, and most of all, spending time with her family.
She is survived by her husband of 53 years, her son, Bejan, and her daughter, Maryam, grandchildren, Haley and John Fakouri, a brother, William Hacker (Lorraine) and nieces and nephews.
Graveside services will be held on Tuesday Feb. 12, in Highland Lawn Cemetery, and a celebration of life to follow in the Immanuel Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall. Greiner Funeral Home, 2005 North 13th St., Terre Haute, Indiana, 47804, was entrusted with care and arrangements. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to the Indiana State University nursing program.
