Nancy (Pat) Hansen
Nancy “Pat” Hansen, 88, of Rehoboth Beach, passed away October 13, 2020. She was born in Beaver, Pennsylvania to Nels Adolf and Florence Aileen Hansen. She was known as Nancy to family and Pat to friends.
Pat was a graduate of Slippery Rock University and served in the Army for 22 years as a physical therapist. In addition to being stationed at Walter Reed, she served at many hospitals around the world allowing her to become fluent in German.
Since moving to Rehoboth Beach she volunteered with many local organizations, including CAMP Rehoboth, and was a member of Epworth United Methodist Church. She was full of spunk and lived life to the fullest. She could often be found tooling around downtown Rehoboth in her beloved BMW convertible. She was also a writer, taking classes locally and working on her memoirs from her military career. She loved to travel, read, paint, play games, and build jigsaw puzzles, as well as spend time with friends.
In addition to her parents, Pat was predeceased by her sister Barbara Hansen Johnson, brother Nels Robert Hansen, and nephew Frederick Chris Johnson. She is survived by her partner Barbara Rowe, nieces Cheryl Hansen and Nancy Coughlin, nephew David Johnson, cousins Dwight Honecker and Marilyn Powell, great-niece Colleen Coughlin, and great-nephews Connor Coughlin and Zachary Johnson.
A big thank you to neighbors Henley, Bob (aka “Popsy”) and Margee, and friend Joyce.
For the safety of family and friends there will be a service held at a future date when she is laid to rest at Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Millsboro, Delaware with military honors. Inquiries may be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org.
