Carol Ann Doggett Hinshaw


Carol Ann Doggett Hinshaw, passed away August 29th.

HINSHAW—Early Monday morning August 29th, 2022, long time Florence and Reedsport resident, Carol Ann Doggett Hinshaw passed away at her home surrounded by her daughters Tresa and Tiffany from complications of cancer. Many family members and friends had visited Carol prior and after hearing the news and have sent condolences; all have been appreciated. Carol passed two months and two days after her husband Harold.

Carol Ann Doggett was born on May 6th, 1943, in Colorado. Later, the Doggett family moved from Colorado to Mapleton, Ore., where Carol’s father Chet worked for Davidson’s Lumber Company and her mother Mildred raised their four children Kay, Carol, Gary and Pat.

Carol and her siblings prospered while growing up in the small timber town. Carol was active in school activities and her big personality made her extremely popular with her classmates, with whom she continued many close friendships through the years to this day.

Throughout her life, Carol was known to have both wits, charm, grace and tremendous beauty both inside and out. During the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s heydays, Carol had the hair, sunglasses, cars, bell bottoms, color TV, shag carpet and attitude that were in style. One thing you could say for certain — not only was Carol beautiful, she was also very, very, very cool!

Carol married Harold Hinshaw in 1990 and they embarked on several adventures together, travelling from state to state and finally settling in at Brandy Bar Landing in the late 1990s. Both Carol and Harold were familiar faces within the association community, where they made many new friends.

Carol had a tremendous work ethic and a lifetime’s worth of experience as a real estate agent, restaurant worker, International Paper Company employee, KOA Campground manager, and later, managing the local Reedsport liquor store for more than 20 years until her retirement in 2017.

Carol enjoyed many activities, but her favorite was being mother to her three daughters. When Carol’s girls were around, her face glowed and she was truly at peace and happy.

Carol loved to shop, cook, knit, visit with friends and many other things, but being with her daughters was unquestionably her favorite pastime; the girls all enjoyed their mom just as much as she enjoyed them. Carol was very proud and protective of her girls and there was a very close and special bond between them.

Carol was preceded in death by her parents, sisters Kay and Patricia, daughter Tracy Benson and granddaughter Alyssa Ann Haberly. She is survived by her daughters Tresa Haberly of Phoenix, AZ, and Tiffany Jayne of Dallas, TX, brother Gary Doggett, several grandchildren and great grandchildren, and of course, her dog Peanut.

Carol was humble, friendly, dependable and loved. Tresa and Tiffany wish to thank all who have called and to Carols closest friends who were with her and Harold throughout their illnesses.

A memorial service was held at Brandy Bar Landing Saturday September 3, 2022.
