Dr. Saroj Goyal of Monroe passed away peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones on Wednesday, March 8, 2018. She was 68.

Saroj was born Aug. 26th, 1949, in Govardhan, India, as one of eight children. She earned her medical degree from Lady Harding Medical College and Hospital in New Delhi, India, before moving to the United States to practice medicine.

Over the course of her long career, Saroj served in many capacities. Early in her career, she was a professor of child psychiatry at the Chicago Medical School, where she was recognized as a brilliant educator.

Later, she served as a child psychiatrist for the states of Pennsylvania and New York and maintained her own practice.

Saroj was also a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. She was a tireless connector who found joy in bringing people together to celebrate occasions big or small in her own style.

She is fondly remembered for her bright laughter and delicious cooking, and she was the life of every gathering.

Along with spending time with loved ones, Saroj enjoyed cultivating her beautiful garden and playing with her three grandchildren.

Her loved ones remember her for her fierce inner strength, grace, deep spirituality, unyielding positivity and readiness to support anyone in need.
