Born in Jamestown, NY to the late Charlotte C. Highhouse and Harry R. Freeborough of Youngsville, PA. Carol was a graduate of Youngsville High School (’62). Recruited pre-graduation, she started her professional career in Washington DC as clerk/steno for the FAA. During her diverse professional career, she excelled in a variety of roles including Secretary to the Maintenance Chief at Dulles International Airport, School bus Aide/Driver &  Classroom Assistant at NREP (VA), Administrative Assistant for Preservation of Historic Winchester, Administrative Assistant for the American Red Cross, Winchester chapter (VA), and Administrative Assistant for Encore Productions and Studio K (SC). In 2012, she retired from the Horry County Department of Public Works after 15 years of dedicated service.

In addition to her parents, Carol is predeceased by her husband, Wilbur Maben (VA) and her life partner and soulmate, Larry Johnson (SC).

Carol is survived by her only child, Angela Robb & son-in-law, Karl (VA). Her beloved bonus family Charles & Cathy Gore (SC) and their extended family, David & Angela Johnson (FL), Gena, Benton, & Gary Karnap (TN), many dear friends at Public Works, and Carol’s canine companion, Blaze.

She served her community as a volunteer for Mt. View United Methodist church (VA), 4-H leader (Frederick Co. VA), James Wood High School band booster, and many more.
