Lois A. Hansen

Lois Ann Hansen

Lois Ann Hansen, 83, died Tuesday, November 16, 2021.  She was born on January 21, 1938 as the fifth of six children.  After graduating with a teaching degree, she married Jerry Hansen, who was her best friend for over 52 years until his passing in 2011.  She had a quick wit and was often an instigator of practical jokes.  Her thoughtfulness and deep affection for others, including strangers, knew almost no limits.  Always one to provide a kind word, a hug, or a laugh, Lois was the ideal companion for any adventure or day spent sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee.

She is survived by her daughter Laura (Dave Reed) Hansen of Bellevue, NE; a son, Matt (Kristi) Hansen of Everett, WA; a sister, Donna (Wayne) Granneman of Davenport, IA; and four beloved grandchildren, Charlie Hansen-Reed, Jack Hansen-Reed, Madeline Hansen, and Christian Hansen.

She was preceded in death by her husband Jerry Hansen; parents, Frank and Dorothy Campbell, of Audubon, IA; siblings Richard Campbell, Doris Greer, Frances Fairchild & Howard Campbell.

    Laura and family,
    I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. She was such a sweet lady and so thoughtful and caring with Vickie. I still have the prayer shawl that she brought over for her.

    Lois and Jerry were true friends of ours for many years, including the early years of Redeemer Lutheran Church in Bettendorf, Iowa.. Lois was a person who was the very definition of a friend as was her husband Jerry. So many wonderful memories, sorry to learn of her passing.
