Her girlhood was spent on a farm south of Kent. She was married to Charles F.

They lived in Clearfield from 1923 till 1927, then returned to the farm. After her husbandís death September 1935, Mrs. Hansell returned to her home in Clearfield.
A little over a year ago, due to serious illness, she was taken to her daughter's home near Lenox, where she has received loving care from her children.
She is survived by three children Harry of Clearfield, Bert of Diagonal and Ruth Horton of Lenox; three grandchildren and two great grandchildren. One daughter, Mrs. Hattie Millikin, departed this life in 1930, and Jesse and Edna died in infancy. Mrs. Hansell had many friends and was loved by all. She was a very patient sufferer during her long illness, always appreciative of the loving care by her children and the kindness of her friends. Her faith in her Savior and her confidence in the welcome awaiting her in the glory land sustained her through difficult days.
