Beatrice Injajigian went to be with the Lord, March 31, 2018. She was predeceased by her husband Simon, her parents Misak and Rosa Bedrossian, brothers Mgurdeech and Hagop Bedrossian, sisters Varteni Bedrossian and Madelyn Drogitis, and sister-in-law Satenig Ketchoyian. She is survived by her son Jack, several nieces, nephews and cousins. Beatrice was born in Izmir, Turkey and at a young age moved with her family to Pireaus, Greece where she spent her early years helping her father with his tailor business.
Her faith in God, strong love for family and the Armenian Church were the cornerstones of her life in America. Beatrice was a longtime member of the Women's Guild and the ARS. She sang in the choir, taught Armenian School, and was the caretaker and Sacristan of the church for years. She prepared the "Mas" for over 40 years distributed after each Mass. Beatrice was also an accomplished seamstress, baker and cook, as she was involved in preparing many church dinners. Her signature "choreg" (sweet bread) brought comfort to her friends during joyous and trying times. She was well read in Armenian, Greek and English. All her accomplishments were always done in the spirit of unrequited love, kindness and integrity.
The Easter Holiday proved special to Beatrice throughout the years as she meticulously prepared the altar. So it was appropriate that the Good Lord welcomed her into his arms during this time. She will be truly missed.
Funeral services will be held 10:30 am Thursday at St. Gregory the Illuminator Armenian Church, 12 Corbett Ave. Binghamton, with the Very Rev. Fr. Daniel Findikyan officiating. Burial will follow in Floral Park Cemetery. The family will receive friends at the church from 9:30-10:30 am. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation St. Gregory The Illuminator Armenian Church or the Armenian Relief Society, both c/o 12 Corbett Ave. Binghamton, 13903. Services provided by the Hopler & Eschbach Funeral Home, 483 Chenango St. Binghamton.
The Twenty-Third Psalm
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul. He leadeth me in the
paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art
with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the
presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my
head with oil: my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the
house of the LORD forever.
