HANSEN, Cecile

With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Cecile Hansen our beloved Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother. Cecile passed away peacefully at Peace Arch Hospital on Tuesday, October 19th, 2010 after a long, full life. She was 92 years of age. Pre-deceased by her beloved husband Robert and son Don, she is survived by her children, Rosalyn, Gerry, Julie and Dale; her three stepsons, Harold, Dave and Dick; her sister, Violet Statt; fourteen precious grandchildren and many great grandchildren. Cecile was a long time resident of White Rock and previously made her home in Penticton and Prince Rupert. She touched the hearts of the many people who knew her. Friends and relatives will miss her friendliness and good humour. She had a zest for living: loved adventure, travel and meeting new people. She enjoyed her life right up to her last few hours as she shared her treasured memories with grandson Cooper, son-in-law Bruce and daughters Rosalyn and Julie. Her greatest joy in life was her family. Her pure and unconditional love knew no bounds. She was a dedicated mother and grandmother who often sacrificed herself to help her family. She will be greatly missed but will live in the hearts of her family forever.

A celebration of life will be held for family and special friends at her daughter Rosalyn’s home on Sunday, October 24th at 2:00 p.m.
