SOMERS – Mrs. Beverly M. Hansen, 92, passed away peacefully at her residence, surrounded by her family, on Friday November 30, 2018.
A lifelong resident of Racine, she was born on March 4, 1926, the daughter of the late William and Ella (nee: Pedersen) Allen. A woman of strong faith, Bev was a member of Emaus (Emmaus) Lutheran Church her entire life. Bev graduated from Washington Park High School in 1944. She was united in marriage to Chris S. Hansen on August 17, 1946.
Bev and Chris owned and operated Hiawatha Farm on the corner of Hwy H and KR in Kenosha County. A self-taught bookkeeper, she worked as a tax preparer for H & R Block for a period of time. In retirement, Bev and Chris enjoyed golfing, taking many golfing vacations with friends. After Chris’s death she continued golfing in the Ives Grove women’s golf league. She also loved sewing, knitting, gardening and traveling with her family; including two trips to Denmark. Bev was a lifelong avid reader and in recent years she enjoyed water aerobics with her friends.
