Adelaide E. “Addie” Hansen
MOSINEE, Wis. — Adelaide E. “Addie” Hansen, 87, of Mosinee, (formerly of Iron Mountain and Foster City) went to be with her Lord and Savior on June 25, 2019, at St. Josephs Hospital in Marshfield, Wis., following a brief illness. Her beloved family was at her side.
Addie was born Oct. 27, 1931, in Carlshend, daughter of the late Neil and Beatrice (Brown) Winters.
Addie grew up in Carlshend and graduated from Marquette High School, Class of 1949. She married Raymond Hansen in Marquette on Oct. 13, 1951. After marriage, they enjoyed four years together while Ray served in the United States Air Force stateside during the Korean War.
Addie was an amazing homemaker who took great pride in providing for so many. She helped raise numerous children in her home, providing a nurturing atmosphere for many families.
Ray and Addie raised five wonderful children: Daniel (Peggy) Hansen of Coleman, Wis., Julie (Mark) Osterberg of Tucson, Ariz., Kathryn (Robert) Carlson of Canandaigua, N.Y., David (Laurie) Hansen of Stevens Point, Wis., and Peter (Erin) Hansen of Mosinee.
They delighted in their 16 grandchildren: Amy (Kevin) Dugan, Jane (Matt) Schultz, Kate (Mark) Gross, Britt (Christian) Felix, David Osterberg, Kirsten (Robert) Hasler, Kristina (Matt) Harter, Kara (Mark) Anderson, Gabriel (Luba) Carlson, Zachary, Daniel and Grace Carlson, Jana (Nathan) Brown, Tyler (fiancée Emily Lund) Hansen, and Noah and Lily Hansen.
They were blessed with 19 great-grandchildren: Hannah, Collin and Ava Dugan, Isaac, Eli and Emmett Schultz, Adam and Leo Gross, Shea, Paige, Lauren and Grant Felix, James Hasler, Arabella and Everett Harter, June, Faye, and Charlie Anderson, and Henry Brown. Two additional great-grandchildren are expected later this year.
Addie’s faith in God was what defined her life. She was a member of First Covenant Church, Iron Mountain, serving as a Sunday school teacher, choir member and senior high league leader.
Upon moving to the Hansen family farm in Foster City following their retirement, Adelaide found great fellowship in attending Mission Covenant Church for ten years. She was a faithful attendee of Good News Church in Mosinee over the last four years.
Addie is survived by her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She also leaves two sisters-in-law, Dorothy (Raymond) Edlund, and Carolyn (Elwood) Anderson, both of the Iron Mountain area. There are numerous nieces, nephews and cousins who will miss her as well.
In addition to her parents, Adelaide was preceded in death by her husband, Ray; siblings, Malcolm, Sadie, Phoebe, Jean and Allan; aunts, uncles, and several very special sisters and brothers-in-law, as well as dear friends of many years.
Visitation will be 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, July 12 at First Covenant Church: 125 East H Street in Iron Mountain.
The funeral service will be at 1 p.m. at the church. Pastors David and Tyler Hansen will officiate. Burial will be at 4 p.m. in Foster City.
