Denae was such an amazing person. She was the counselor for my three kids at Buchanan. I am sure she saved them many times over in their academic lives. She was an amazing friend to me during those years and after. She always had a bright smile and a hug to give. I am so grateful that she is out of pain and whole again. May God hold her family in His arms during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Hansen family.

Denae was one of the most pure of heart humans I have ever met. She had this unique ability to be kind, empathetic and a nurturer while still being able to be tough and hold students accountable. She had the best smile and warm heart, I cannot imagine Buchanan as a student or as a staff member without her. She embodied everything that Clovis strives for- integrity, respect, caring, trustworthiness, the list could go on and on. It is not an exaggeration to say that Denae was the heart and soul of Buchanan High school and has left an incredible legacy of students, colleagues and her own children that will carry on in her memory.

I pray for comfort and strength for Steve and all of the Hansen and Duerksen family. I am filled with joy knowing that Denae is free from pain and suffering in heaven with her dad. I was extremely blessed to have worked with her and to have enjoyed our friendship. I am thankful for all of the thousands of students she helped including my own children. She was a great counselor, colleague and friend. The best part was her ability to get everyone to laugh. She truly lived life and gave so much to so many. I’ll never forget the things she taught me and how she approached life.

All my love goes to the entire Hansen family. Denae was so much fun, had the most infectious laugh, and would brighten anyone’s day with her beautiful smile. She touched so many souls here on earth but I know she is pain free, running and dancing in Heaven!
