Carol Jean Voss, daughter of Leslie and Alma (Prien) Voss was born on April 22, 1933 at home in Pottawattamie County, IA. Carol attended country school until graduating from Treynor High School in 1951. She met Robert "Bob" Henderson at a dance in Mineola. They were married on October 11, 1952 at Carol's family home near Treynor, IA. Carol and Bob lived on Pleasant Valley Ranch near Silver City where they farmed for 10 years. The couple moved to Glenwood in 1962. She worked at the Mineola State Bank for 18 years, after a short retirement cooked at the Glenwood Schools and then cooked at Glen Haven. She prepared her favorite recipes for the residents, many of which they used for years to come. They enjoyed many years of dancing in Mineola, Malvern, Missouri Valley and Omaha. They enjoyed camping, going from a tent to truck camper and on to motorhome until they joined the Heritage Club in Glenwood and traveled many states in the U.S. They enjoyed water skiing, teaching many people how to ski, and fishing all over the country. Carol loved to hunt mushrooms in the Spring on the Missouri River Bottom and in the timbers. Eating her fresh fried mushrooms was a treat! Carol loved playing Bingo and going to the Casinos! Which Bob Hated!!!
Carol was a number one Volunteer, receiving the Iowa Heritage Volunteer award. Some of her volunteer work was helping at the Glenwood Museum, Blood Mobile and particularly the Senior Center which she played a major role in organizing. Thru the years she was a member of the Legion Auxiliary Bluebird Club and Bowling Teams. Hobbies included reading, puzzles, cards and board games, along with bowling. Carol was a wonderful cook and baker. Family favorites were her ham wrapped pickles and her angel food cakes with her "special" glaze!
Carol is preceded in death by her parents, husband, Bob; Sisters, Kay "Susie", Mary, Dorothy, Andrea "Andy", Brothers, Leslie, Larry and Edward "Eddie", sister in law, Betty Burgoin and niece Gayle Hayden.
Carol is survived by nephew and caregiver since Bobs passing, Bill Burgoin and his wife, Suzanne of Silver City, IA, and their family, Special Niece, Emma Nenneman, Sister, Barbara, and many nieces and nephews and many friends.

My childhood is full of memories with Carol & Bob camping and boating, including teaching me to water ski. I envision Carol, Bob and my mom & dad all together again planning the next RX/Boating trip or signing up for that late Friday night bowling league. Thank you for the memories and rest in peace.

Carol was a very sweet and caring lady. Many memories of her. I have known her most of my life. She is with bob once again. And we all knew he was her best sidekick. The group is all together again talking, playing cards and telling stories. Prayers are with everyone. Carol will be missed.

I so enjoyed getting to know her. She was always meticulous in her appearance and very classy. She could grow the most beautiful plants in the world. God blessed us letting us be a part of your life. RIP kind lady.
