Lois Ann Hansen, 75, died Saturday, October 10, 2020 at home in Leisure Lake.
Lois Ann Clark was born November 29, 1944, in Danbury, IA, the third of four children born to Raymond (Butch) and Martha (Schuyler) Clark.
She was baptized and confirmed in Christian faith.
Ann graduated from Sac Community High School in 1963. She attended Omaha School of Practical Nursing in Omaha, NE where she obtained her LPN degree. She later went on to obtain her RN degree from Iowa Central Community College.
Ann was united into marriage to Dale Hansen on December 29, 1968, at Sac City, IA. They made their home in Valley Forge, PA for two years before returning to Sac City, IA. Ann continued her nursing career at Loring Hospital. Three children were born into this union: Kenzie, Karen, and Kelli Jo.
Ann and Dale raised their children in Sac City, IA. Ann was very active in the Sac City Community, especially in her church and the fine arts. She was also incredibly involved in the costuming of the community productions in both Sac City and Newton. Dale and Ann fostered several children, many of whom continue to be a part of the family.
In 1993 Dale and Ann moved to Newton. She continued her nursing career at Skiff Medical Center where she developed a diabetic education program. Ann also followed her love for fine arts and her passion for Christ by serving on serval committees at First Christian Church. Ann also served God through several mission trips.
In 2012 Dale and Ann purchased their dream home on the lake in Trenton, MO at Leisure Lake. This home is where Ann spent much of her time on the dock honing her fishing skills, reading books on the porch, sewing, and playing cards. She continued her community service serving on the association board as an auditor, Chair of the Shelter House Committee and served as a member of Ladies on the Lake. Ann also enjoyed weekends filled with preparing new recipes shared with dear friends.
Ann is survived by her husband Dale. Four daughters: Nedra Mahone of Washington, DC; Kenzie (Fred) Alderson of Nevada, IA; Karen Gunderson of Ida Grove, IA; Kelli Jo (Ron) Ouellette of Telford, TN. She is also survived by 4 grandchildren – Peyton and Aiden Alderson, Ashly, and Mason Gunderson. Siblings: Bruce (Sue) Clark of Iowa City, IA; Wayne (Janna) Clark of Newton, IA; Jean (Mike) Simpson of Manchester, IA; many extended family members and friends.
Ann was preceded in death by her parents and her beloved dog Rosco.
A family graveside service will be held later. In honoring Ann’s request, there will be a private lakeside service followed by a celebration of life.
Memorials can be made in Ann’s name to support Bright Futures through the Hodge Presbyterian Church in Trenton MO.
