It is with great sadness that the family of Lynda Elizabeth Hansen (Cleland) announce her peaceful passing in her home on Sept 3rd 2021 in her 78th year. Loving wife of Don Hansen (predeceased). Lynda will be dearly missed by her children Grant (Carrie), Brett (Laura), Mark (Patty), Kerry (Derek). She will be fondly remembered by her grandchildren Sarah, Christopher (Lena), Andrew (Ashley) and Felicity. Forever remembered by her sister Beverley Iding (Norm) and her long-time special friends Marg, Joan, Marilyn, Dave and her loyal fur companion Boots.
Lynda lived many years with cancer but she never looked at it as a “battle” to be won or lost. She simply accepted that it was a nuisance she had to deal with as she carried on living. Lynda continued her love for travel and saw many places around the world and enjoyed several trips to Disney. She said Hawaii was by far one of the most beautiful places on earth but there was no place she loved to be more than at the home she and Don built together in Uxbridge over 50 years ago where they raised their children. As the cancer eventually stopped her from being able to travel, she never allowed it to take away her joy. She found great joy in spending time with her family and friends and always made sure she didn’t take life too seriously. She said having a good sense of humour was her best medicine.
A special thank you to her nurse Tina and to Dr Wilson for all their compassionate care.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Family Home, Uxbridge on Thursday, September 23, 2021 at 1:00p.m. For directions to the Family Home, please contact Derek at firstname.lastname@example.org
