Carol Jean Hainault, age 89, of Edmore, formerly of Escanaba, passed away Sunday evening, May 3, 2015 at her home under the loving care of her family. 

The daughter of Arthur & Estelle (Turner) Erickson, she was born on April 11, 1926 in Massillon, Ohio.  On June 15, 1952, in Escanaba, she married Joseph Louis Hainault and together they raised 3 children and enjoyed almost 63 years of marriage.  Carol earned her licensed practical nursing certificate and worked in the office of Dr. Donald Fitch.

Locally, she and Joseph attended the Cedar Lake Seventh-Day Adventist Church and have been long-time members of the Escanaba Seventh-Day Adventist Church.  Carol was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother and especially enjoyed working with children.  Her hobbies included doing stained glass with her husband, artwork and bike riding.

She was preceded in death by her parents.  Surviving are her husband, Joseph Hainault of Edmore;  their children Cindy and Doug Peterson of Vestaburg, Dan and Heidi Hainault of Castle Rock, Colorado, Kathy and Steve Roderick of Edmore; six grandchildren; two brothers, Arthur Erickson of Gladstone, and David and Elaine Erickson of Escanaba; and many nieces and nephews and other dear friends.

Memorial services will be held at the Escanaba Seventh-Day Adventist Church (210 S. Lincoln Road, Escanaba) on June 20, 2015 at 4:00 p.m.  Instead of flowers, Carol would have appreciated contributions in her memory to Great Lakes Adventist Academy worthy student fund.

    Joe and Family,

    Carol was a bright light in my dark world when I came to Christ and the SDA Church. She and Joe accepted us and loved us in a way that enabled us to find our Savior. There is no question in my mind I would not be where I am in this life without Carol Hainault’s constant love and concern for me. I’m so saddened to lose that influence in my life but so excited for the 2nd Coming that I can hardly wait!!!

    Oh great I just typed the whole statement I made in the wrong place., yeah I could copy and paste. I remember Carol, as being always loving and concerned about everyone. She was a lovely and wonderful women. I especially looked up to her for her walk with the Lord. She was an example few can match. I know we will see each other again in that Heavenly Kingdom some day.Praying for you all for strength and knowing the hope that Jesus gave us all. Love you always Jeanne Brezinski Gilbert. We live in Valparaiso Indiana now, since 1980. I love you all very much.
