Carol Joan VanHouten

September 8, 1929 — May 11, 2021

Carol Joan VanHouten, 91, of Santee, South Carolina, wife of the late Eugene B. VanHouten (divorced 1977), passed away on May 11, 2021 at Hoffemeyer Assisted Living at The Oaks in Orangeburg, South Carolina. Carol was a resident of Santee for the past three years, formerly living in Rancho Mirage, California.

Born on September 8, 1929 in New York City, Carol was the daughter of the late Raoul W. Ullberg and Nora Mae Ullberg (Arthur).

Carol is survived by two loving sons Robert Glenn VanHouten and Gary Richard VanHouten, both living in Manning, South Carolina. Carol was pre-deceased by a third son David Raoul VanHouten of Closter, New Jersey. Carol is also survived by several, loving nieces and nephews, mostly living on the west coast.

Carol spent most of her working life in the medical profession as both a nurse and caregiver. Carol’s biggest joy in life was making new friends, staying in touch with old friends and bringing love and happiness into the lives of everyone she met.

The family will receive friends at a memorial tribute on Saturday, May 22, 2021, at 2pm. All are welcome to join us at this tribute which will be held at the clubhouse, in Bradford Village, located in Santee, South Carolina. Burial will take place at a later date, to be announced.
