Carol Anne VanDoorne

23 December, 193613 March, 2020

Carol, 83, passed away peacefully on the morning of March 13, 2020. She was a resident of The Carriage Club for the past five years, where she made many, many wonderful friends who gave her a new lease on life after the passing of her soul mate Jack, in 2014.

Born and raised in New York City, she met the love of her life on a trip to Miami Beach during her college years. She graduated from Lady Cliff College in New York in 1958 and married Jack in 1959, immediately after his graduation from The Stephens Institute of Technology in June of 1959.

She was a resident of Manhasset, NY for over 25 years where she raised her family and was involved in numerous volunteer activities, especially in her children's schools. In 1987, she moved to Palm Beach, FL when Jack retired. They made the very best of their years in the sunshine state, enjoying golf and lots of traveling, until Jack's passing in 2014.

Carol is survived by her three children, Lauri Mead (Don) of Charlotte, Raymond VanDoorne of Brandon, FL, and Suzanne Fairnak (Greg) of Raleigh; and four beloved grandchildren, Kelly Mead Sherron (Alex), Kristin VanDoorne, Michael Fairnak, and Nicholas Fairnak. She was preceded in death by her adoring husband, Jack.

A Funeral Service will be held at 11 am on Tuesday, March 17th at Harry & Bryant's "Chapel in the Oaks." The family will receive friends prior to the service at 10 am. Private interment will be in Florida on Saturday where she will be reunited with Jack once more.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to No One Buried Alone, c/o St. Nicholas Catholic Church, 5715 Lake Ida Road, Delray Beach, FL 33484.
