May 6, 2024

Verla W. Hansen, 89, of Roy, Utah passed away on April 26, 2024, at home with her husband John and son Scott by her side. She was married to her beloved husband John for 69 years. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and neighbors.

Verla was born in 1935 and worked the family farm with her 6 brothers and sisters. After her children were in Junior High Verla went to work at IRS. She started in the mail room extracting tax returns from envelopes. By the time she retired after 25 years of service her work ethic had been rewarded with several grade and step level promotions. Verla finished her career helping develop the system to allow the IRS to accept electronic filing. She worked hard and appreciated others who worked hard no matter what their job.

She lived a life filled with love, laughter, and kindness. She was known for her crocheting. She made beautiful Afghan blankets and took joy in giving hand-made dish cloths as gifts of gratitude.

Verla and John would snowbird in Yuma with family and friends. The snowbird group was up to 10 people. The morning decision was where they would go for lunch and dinner. Verla’s favorite activity was to go out to eat with a group of brothers and sisters along with their spouses. The wait staff were always considered family.

Verla is survived by her husband, her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. Her younger sister Linda and all of the nephew and nieces and family whom she loved. Verla’s legacy will live on in the hearts of those who knew her.

The family would like to thank PrimRose Hospice for their help and a special thanks to Maline, Robert, Blanca, and Denice for their care.

A gathering of friends and family to celebrate Verla’s life will be held at Premier Funeral Services in Roy on Saturday May 11, 2024 at 2 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to a charity of your choice in Verla’s honor.

Verla W. Hansen’s memory will forever be cherished by those who had the privilege of knowing her. May she rest in peace.
