Elinor Hansen

Died: Monday, November 19, 2012
Age: 80
Elinor Hansen, 80, Williams Bay, died Monday, Nov. 19, 2012, at Aurora Lakeland Medical Center.

She was born Feb. 19, 1932, in Williams Bay, to Walter and Winifred Hansen. She attended Williams Bay High School, graduating in 1949, and went to nursing school at Passavant Hospital in Chicago. Her nursing career took her to Colorado Springs, Colo., where she became an enthusiastic skier, and eventually to Madison, serving in a physician’s office and then as a claims adjuster for Wisconsin Physicians Service.

Upon retirement, she returned to Williams Bay and spent several years as support for her parents. She was an avid reader, an excellent embroiderer and knitter. Many of her friends and family were lucky recipients of her handiwork. She took an active interest in her nephews and nieces. Her other interests included family history and the wildlife surrounding her home.

Elinor is survived by a brother, Robert Hansen, Lake Geneva; a sister, Irene Osterbrock, Santa Cruz, Calif.; nephews, Joseph Hansen, Edgerton, Christopher Hansen, Westminster, Calif.; Jeffrey Hansen, Lake Geneva, and William Osterbrock, Santa Cruz; and nieces, Carol LePage, Santa Cruz, and Laura Osterbrock, Seattle, Wash.

No services are planned. Memorial gifts may be made to the Restless Legs Syndrome Foundation, 1530 Greenview Dr., SW, Suite 210, Rochester, MN, 55902.
