Magat, Rene (Dudie) Isip, Elvira (Sid) Magat, Rebecca (Mario) Laureta, and Rudy (Laura) Isip. She graduated from the Philippine College of Commerce in 1963. After five years of courtship, she married her pen pal, Miguel "Mike" Fajardo on March 19, 1972. In November 1972, she was reunited with her husband in the United States and eventually resided in Carson, California. Her very first job in the United States was at Pepsi-Cola.

She was a devoted Catholic, amazing mother to three kids, Medelyn (Jason) Collado, Melissa (Michael) Sales and Alvaro Fajardo and a proud grandmother to three energetic grandsons, Noah Orion Collado, Lucas Marcelino Collado, and Myles Jacob Sales. She surrounded herself among family and friends and always threw great parties and family softball games in the summer. She was always known for wearing her signature color: Purple. In 2009, she was diagnosed with hydrocephalus. Although a long and arduous journey, she met many angels and touched many hearts with her willing spirit. She will be deeply missed by her family and friends. Carol passed away peacefully at Charlou Guest Home in Anaheim on Tuesday, May 13, 2013.

  1. Although no words can really help to ease the loss of your sister, just know that you are very close in my thoughts and prayers.

    I pray that the love of those around you, help you through the days ahead, and that your fond memories give you strength. I always look up at the stars at night and just admire the beauty in them, and it gives me peace. But, perhaps they are not stars at all…but rather openings in heaven, where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. My God put his arms around your entire family…and comfort you.

  2. Took care of her the last few weeks of her life. Miss joking with her about us going to VS store and collect all the fragrances they all have. Ate Carol, miss you but I won’t say goodbye cuz I know eventually when it’s my turn, I will see you again as we can party non stop with those angels in heaven.

  3. Dear Isip-Fajardo Family,

    I am sorry to hear about the loss of your loved
    one. Although, I don’t know your family personally, I surely empathize with
    what you may be feeling; as I have also lost loved ones in death.
    Thankfully, our Creator, has lovingly provided a means for us to see our dead
    loved ones again and cope with our pain the meantime. The scriptures tell us at
    John 5:28,29, “Do not marvel at this because the hour is coming when all
    those in the memorial tombs will hear my voice and come out.” Isn’t that a
    comforting promise? Other scriptures point to this happening in the very near
    future. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Take care.
