Eileen G. Hansen Obituary
Eileen G. Hansen, (née Smyth), 88, Aug. 28, loving wife of the late Kenneth; beloved mother of Brian, Jeff (Joy) and Susan Hansen, Mary (Bill) Metzler and Beth (Steve) Rockey; dear grandmother of Nicole, Michelle and Ashley Hansen, Charlie, Jack, Danny, Katie, Bill and Elizabeth Metzler, Kara, Matt and Emily Rockey; devoted sister of Kay (the late Bill) Dodd, Elaine (the late Eugene) Barry and Patricia (Ed) Harmening; cherished aunt of numerous nieces and nephews; and a loyal, empathetic friend to many. A graduate of Mundelein College, Eileen started out as a Chicago Public Schools teacher. She later earned her Masters in psychology/counseling and went on to build a second career as a marriage and family counselor, first at Little Company of Mary Hospital, where she co-founded the bereavement support program, and then in private practice. She was a kind, fun, sensitive, spiritual person with a strong social conscience who did her best to make her community and the world more peaceful and just. She never gave up. Peace and love, Mom.
