Obituary for Ruth Hansen

Ruth Hansen was born July 11, 1922 on the family farm south of Tyler, Minnesota to Victor and Signe (Mikkelsen) Jensen. She was baptized August 6, 1922 at Danebod Lutheran Church in Tyler, and later confirmed there on May 23, 1937. She grew up on the farm, attending Danebod parochial school for grades one through five, and then Tyler public schools, graduating from Tyler High School. On November 20, 1941 Ruth married Ralph Hansen at Danebod Lutheran Church. Their union was blessed with four daughters and 70 years of life together. The couple farmed near Tyler from 1941-1997, when they retired and moved into town. Later they became residents of Danebod Village. Ralph died September 13, 2012 at which time Ruth and Ralph lived at Sunrise Manor Nursing Home. There, on September 20, 2016 Ruth died at the age of 94.

Ruth was a member of Danebod Lutheran Church where she sang in the choir and participated in the women’s group. She enjoyed playing golf, knitting, playing cards, bowling, reading, winters in Arizona, gardening, singing, and raising her four daughters.

Ruth is lovingly remembered by her daughters: Elizabeth Baxter and her husband William of Phoenix, Arizona, Karma Dingman and her husband Richard of Littleton, Colorado, Ruthann Dorn and her husband Darwin of West Bend, Wisconsin, and Gail Newell and her special friend Neil Enderson of Tyler, Minnesota; 9 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren, and 4 great-great-grandchildren; two brothers-in-law, Alfred Hansen and Ejvind Hansen; and many other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ralph; her parents; and a granddaughter, Megan Dupre.

Blessed be her memory.
