Betty Sue Hansen was born Nov. 25, 1957, to Oscar and Jennie Fischer in Oklahoma City, Okla. She was united in marriage to Kevin Hansen on Oct. 11, 2008 in Cedar Rapids.
Betty was a very kind, caring and giving person. She always cared for other people and helping them before worrying and caring for herself. She was very talented in many different ways. Betty would take her original photograph and then create a poem that would complement the photo to be framed and presented. She also enjoyed making floral arrangements for gifts. Betty also enjoyed sewing, cooking and baking. Betty and Kevin liked to go to the airport to watch the planes take off and land as well as going fishing and taking little trips. Her friends and family were the most important thing to her and at the top of her list.
Survivors include her loving husband, Kevin; sisters, Martha Anne Weaver and Dolly (JT) Slaughter, both of Oklahoma City; mother-in-law, Shirley Hansen of Cedar Rapids; many great-nieces and nephews; and many great-great-nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents and two sisters, Shirley Patrick and Loverna Marie Linn.
“My wife was so kind, caring, sweet and loving. She brought so much love into my life in the short time we were together as husband and wife. The last seven years were the best years of my life — three of courting and four of marriage. She was my world and my everything. I will be so lost without her. Someday we will be together again in heaven and then I will be happy but for now she is my special angel and watching over me and everyone else.”
A memorial fund has been established.
