Carol Norquest Dugan. May 10, 1942 - April 7, 2017. Carol Dugan died suddenly on the morning of April 7th at her Indianapolis home. She was born in Richmond Indiana to Donald Andrew Norquest and Catharine Clarke Norquest.
Following World War II the family settled in Decatur, Indiana. In her teen years she was an excellent student but on Friday nights she could be found at the sock-hop dancing to the latest hits. She met and married her love, John Rickwood Dugan, while attending Indiana University. Carol changed her major from pre-dentistry to medical technology, as John entered medical school and they started their family. As the boys grew older Carol worked alongside John at the office. Anne was later raised in the "Family Practice" in Broad Ripple. At the time of her death she was still working two days a week in Jim's office and enjoying countless hours with her beloved youngest grandchild Genevieve.
She was predeceased by her husband. She leaves behind; sons, Michael John(Demaris), James Andrew, and daughter, Anne Marie (Dugan) Skiles (Aaron); grandchildren, Allison Nicole Dugan, Lauren Renee Dugan, Ava Grace Dugan,Zachary James Dugan, and Genevieve Marie Skiles; sister Rita M. DuBois (Michael) brother, James K. Norquest (Julie) and sister C. Lisa Norquest (James Rusine) and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
Those on her Christmas card list will never forget the over 40 years of handmade ornaments. Carol was proud of her time as a docent at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Some of her dearest friends were from Bridge Club and multiple Book Clubs. Carol and her cherished friend and beautician Judy always strove to present her with the latest in hair styles.
