Afton J. Hansen Obituary

Afton J. Hansen, 99, of Yuba City, passed away April 13, 2016. She was born July 3,1916 in Brigham City, UT and has been a resident of the Yuba Sutter area since 1929.

Afton was a Secretary for the State of California, Division of Highways and earlier for Yuba County Title Company. She was a member of the Feather River Ward, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Yuba City. She was a graduate of Marysville Union High School, Class of 1934, and attended Yuba College.

She has been a source of strength, wisdom, kindness and generosity to all of her family and friends. Her door was always open, with a welcoming smile, a comforting home, and an understanding heart. She provided a place of acceptance and comfort to all who came.

Her nature was one of sweetness and giving of herself with an intelligence and fortitude that sustained her through many of life's challenges.

A kinder, gentler, more generous person you could never meet. She never said a bad word about anyone. She was calm and considerate of others, and was always fun to talk to and be around, and she could speak to any topic.

She was the perfect parent, grandparent, and great-grandparent. She taught us all how to live, not only in words, but also by her example.

Survivors include daughter Daralyn Hansen; sons Tracy Hansen, Norman Hansen (Carole) and Martin Hansen (Jan); 5 grandchildren and 6-great-grandchildren.

Graveside services will be conducted on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 at 11:00 am at the Sutter

Cemetery. Visitation will be at the Ullrey Memorial Chapel on Monday, April 18, 2016 from 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm.
