Lola Hansen Obituary

Lola Belle Hansen, 86, of Rigby, died Monday, Aug. 12, 2013, at her home surrounded by her loving family.

She was born May 27, 1927, in Driggs to Evan Burbank Floyd and Norma Grover Floyd. She was raised and attend- ed schools in Driggs, graduating from Teton High School.

On June 18, 1947, she married DeWayne L. "Dutch" Hansen in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple. They were blessed with three daughters and two sons.

Over the years, Lola worked for Radee's Dress Shop in Rigby, for the Jefferson Co-op, Bearing Sales and Service in Idaho Falls and for Jones Custom Meats in Rigby.

Lola was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; she served in the Primary and Young Women's organizations. She also served as president of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Posse Auxiliary and was a member of a pinochle club.

She enjoyed quilting, singing with her husband, camping and snowmobiling. She always made sure she had a good home-cooked meal for anyone who visited at mealtime, and she especially loved spending time with her children and grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents; a sister, Marcia Berger; and a grandson, Zach Beard.

The family extends their sincere appreciation to Teton Hospice for their gentle hand in caring for Lola.
