I received a phone call last week sharing that Shirley Hansen had recently died. She was the widow of Pr. and District President/Bishop Edward A. Hansen from the Southwest Minnesota District of the American Lutheran Church. She recently died.
Lee Anne Lack (her husband is Gene), one of Ed and Shirley’s daughters, shared the news with me. They are also survived by Linda Hansen, her husband Bruce and son Matthew Kau.
The photo I am sharing was taken on Epiphany in 2007. I had the privilege of visiting with both of them and took some video footage for our synod’s history file a few years ago. I enjoyed and appreciated my visit.
May God surround their family as they grieve, mourn, remember, give thanks and trust in the promises of God we know in Christ Jesus.
