Helen G. Hansen of Snohomish WA, born February 20, 1916 in Auburn, Nebraska, was called home into the loving arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on October 6, 2012.

She is survived by her sister, Bonnie Cratsenberg; son-in-law, Richard Schuler; grandson, James Schuler and wife, Kim; granddaughter, Deanna Schuler-McCulloch and husband, Tracy; grandson, Matthew Schuler and wife, Lannatt; great-grandsons, Kyle, Michael, Ryan and Cameron; great-grandson-in-law, Tucker; great -granddaughters, Kaitlyn and Jenna; and many very special nieces and nephews. We grieve for our loss and shed our tears but we rejoice in having enjoyed the blessing of being loved and loving such a wonderful human being. Our lasting memories of Helen will be of joy, knowing she lived a full and wonderful life. We will never forget all her stories that she would tell us over and over again. And we will dearly miss her sharp humor to forever express her witty comments. Helen shared a lot with her family and friends over the years and touched many lives in many ways. Helen loved and she was loved in return. No greater gift can any person hope to give or receive. She was an active member of St. John's Episcopal Church in Snohomish, WA where there will be a memorial service at the church, 913 - 2nd Street, Snohomish WA 98290 on Friday, October 12, at 1 p.m. The family would like to give special thanks and appreciation to the staff of Tender Loving Care. Owner, Claudette and her family gave our beloved Helen so much love and attention during her last few years with us on earth. In lieu of flowers, the family wishes that memorials be made to Tender Loving Care to help support their foundation to continue to care for elderly people. Donations can be made to TLC, c/o Richard Schuler, 414-15th Street, Snohomish WA 98290.

Our family has so many positive memories of times spent with Jim, Helen, and Lynda in Snohomish there is not enough room here to tell them all. We remember my parents and the Hansens playing cards and completely ignoring all of the kids. Smart move!! We loved the time we spent together. Noone deserved to be as gorgeous as Helen. Helen was our mother's best friend and they graduated together from Custer Union High School. Our memories are many and full of love and wit. May your memories sustain you in this difficult time. We love all of you!
Steve and Linda Dodd, Susan and Keith Bakker, Phil and Caroll Dodd, and Stan and Chris Dodd.

Helens family, I am sorry for your loss, Helen had a long life. I met her in the 50's when her and mom became such great life long friends. Helen was mad when my mom died first so hopefully they will meet up again

My Auntie Helen was a woman of faith and grace...of love and compassion and had a moral fortitude and sternness that was to be respected.
I will hold her dear to my memory forever.
