Obituary for Norma Jean Hansen

Norma Jean Hansen, 91, daughter of Cecil & Grace (Gibbons) Kahler, was born June 26, 1928 in Granger, Iowa. She passed away peacefully Monday, January 13, 2020 at the Guthrie County Hospital, Guthrie Center, Iowa surrounded by her loving husband of 71 years and her 5 children.
She graduated from Granger High School in 1945. During high school, she was a part of a Dance Troupe that traveled to many venues throughout the Midwest. On December 28, 1948, she married Theodore K. Hansen at the parsonage in Granger. To this union five children were born. Ted was still going to Simpson College so they lived in Indianola until his graduation. They then moved to Granger and in the mid 1950's, they moved to Guthrie Center, where Ted built their family home and raised their children.
In earlier years, Norma worked at a bank in downtown Des Moines. While raising her children she was a bookkeeper for their business, Guthrie Center Plumbing and Heating, but her most cherished job was being a homemaker and mother.
