Obituary for Lyle Dean Hansen

Lyle Dean Hansen, age 82, son of Emanuel and Martha Hansen, was born on May 6, 1936, in Audubon County, Iowa. He passed away January 27, 2019, at the New Homestead in Guthrie Center, Iowa. 

Lyle graduated from Audubon High School.  On February 6, 1954, he married Rosella Rasmussen in Audubon, Iowa.  They lived in several southwest Iowa communities before moving to rural Guthrie County in 1966.   

Lyle farmed his entire life with an emphasis on being a good caretaker of the land by using good conservation practices.  He also was a licensed realtor for a number of years in Guthrie County.   

Lyle enjoyed spending time with his family and friends.  He enjoyed bike riding, including completing the RAGBRAI route one year.  He also enjoyed fishing, sweet corn feeds with the neighbors, neighborhood get-togethers, fried chicken, and pride in his Danish Heritage.  Everyone knew Lyle by his one-finger farmers wave.   

Lyle and his family were members of the New Bethel Church and later became members of the Bowman Chapel UMC Church.  Lyle also served on the Guthrie Center School Board.

Lyle was preceded in death by his wife Rosella; father and mother, Emanuel and Martha Hansen; brother, Ivan Hansen. Lyle is survived by his five children, Sue Hansen (Denny), Panora Iowa; Randy Hansen (Carol), Guthrie Center, Iowa; Vicki Frohling (Wyatt), Beloit, Kansas; Lance Hansen (Lisa), Guthrie Center, Iowa; and Todd Hansen (Shannon), of Jefferson, Iowa.  13 grandchildren, Paul Buttler (Tommie), Keith Buttler (Jennifer), Amy Pavelka (Rod), Leslie Hough (Kevin), Jennifer Fletcher (Chuck), Amanda Fincham (B), Adam Frohling, Nick Hansen (Tessa), Whitney Stuart (Mike), Lauren Hansen, Olivia Hansen, William Hansen, and Jack Hansen.  26 great-grandchildren.  Brother, Charles Hansen, Atlantic, Iowa; Brother-in-law and Sister-in-law Richard and Sue Rasmussen, Ankeny, Iowa; several nieces and nephews. 

Visitation will be Tuesday, January 29, 2019, from 5-8 pm, with family present, at Twigg Funeral Home in Panora, Iowa.  The family will be holding a private memorial service. 

The family asks that memorials be made to “Family of Lyle Hansen”.  Memorials will be donated back to local organizations. The family hopes everyone will remember Lyle for his humble heart and soft soul.
