DOREEN BERNADINE HANSEN

HANSEN, DOREEN BERNADINE

SEPTEMBER 24, 1939 ~ OCTOBER 31, 2015

“When Irish hearts are happy the world seems bright and gay and when irish eyes are smiling they steal your heart away.”

Born and raised in Kelowna, this Irish angel was happily married to Keith Hansen for 57 years. She was a loving mother to Kevin (Stephanie) Hansen, Kelly (Don) Buchner and Karen (Terry) Hansen. A devoted grandmother to Matthew (Amy), Kyle (Britney), Rylee (Daisy), Wil, Triston and Julianna. A proud great grandmother to Sawyer and Kaydn. She also held a special place in her heart for Kris Rainey. A private celebration of Doreen’s life is being planned for the spring. In the meantime, if you can share a moment today with a loved one, do so and cherish it.

Irish Blessing

May those who love us, love us.

And those who don’t, may God turn their hearts.

And if he doesn’t turn their hearts,

May he turn their ankles so we’ll know them by their limping.
