Obituary: Carol Hansen

April 6, 1929 – April 9, 2019

Carol Ann Hansen (née Anderson), 90, of Sturgeon Bay died at Pinecrest Village in Sturgeon Bay. She was the daughter of Endre and Esther (Olson) Anderson. Carol attended Silverdale Grade School and graduated from Sturgeon Bay High School. 

After high school, Carol moved to California for employment. Upon her return, she met and married Robert Hansen of Oak Park, Illinois, on Dec. 5, 1952. They were both employed in the Chicago area for many years. Carol and Bob spent their summer months in the Sawyer Harbor area in Idlewild, where they eventually built a home to enjoy. They later retired to that home. 

They had a passion for every kind of boating and were fortunate enough to take their boats to explore the beautiful towns in Michigan and Wisconsin that lie on Lake Michigan. Carol and Bob went on a couple of Caribbean island cruises and even ventured all the way to China to visit her daughter and son-in-law and visited the cities of Beijing, Xian and Shanghai.

Survivors include her daughter Karen (Chuck) Hyttel, Sturgeon Bay; two grandsons, Bob (Wendy) Hyttel and David (Linley) Hyttel, all of Winter Garden, Florida; two great-grandsons, Chase and Weston; a brother, Richard (Kathryn) Anderson; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, son John, husband Robert, and siblings: Everett (Marie) Anderson, Betty (Emil) Mickelson, Ardis (Henry) Witt, Janice (John) Hogan; and her brothers-in-law, Jack (Sandy) Hansen and Charles (Lorraine) Bremer.

Private family services will be conducted. Forbes Funeral Home & Cremations is in charge of arrangements. Memorials may be directed to help Carol’s five-year-old great-niece Harper Dubauche, who is battling cancer. To make donations online, Google “Harper Dubauche” to find the GoFundMe page, or mail donations to Mike Dubauche at 405 S.
