Mom was born in Theodore, Saskatchewan to Charley and Elena Hansen. She was the youngest of eight girls with three younger brothers being born after her.

She raised her children in Saskatchewan and Vernon. Mom and dad moved to Vernon in 1946. She baked bread and cooked on a wood fired kitchen stove.

She always found time to play outside games with her children which we will always remember. Mom looked forward to family get togethers for picnics, home cooked meals and camping. She looked forward to her birthdays with family and friends.

Mom liked playing cards and games. She embroidered, quilted and put puzzles together. She enjoyed the winters, sleigh riding with her family and close friends next door (the Edwards). She has numerous house plants which she cared for, liked having the wild birds outside, especially hummingbirds, quail and bluebirds.

Mom was a caring and wonderful mother and our friend. She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all her family and friends.

Rest in peace sweet mother of ours. Give dad a hug for us.

A funeral service will be held at 10:00 am on Friday, September 18, 2020 at Pleasant Valley Funeral Home, 4303 Pleasant Valley Road, Vernon, BC, with burial to follow at Pleasant Valley Cemetery.
