Elwood, Nebraska


Inez Lorraine Hansen, age 86, passed away at her home in Boulder, Colorado, on February 4, 2012.  Inez was born October 26, 1925, in Elwood, Nebraska, to Claude and Alma Corder.  Inez was married to Lowell V. Hansen, who preceded her in death in January of 2008. 

Lowell and Inez owned and operated the Boulder Refrigeration business for over thirty years.  Inez also did volunteer work at Boulder Community Hospital. She took great interest in the work, difficulties, and accomplishments of her family and others, and was always there to support, encourage and help in any way she could.  Most of all, Inez treasured get-togethers with family and friends, playing games, preparing delightFULL meals, and was the most gracious of hosts.

Inez was preceded in death by her parents and husband Lowell.

Inez is survived by her sister, Norma McKenzie, four children, Eric, Mark, Lynne and Kim, seven grandchildren, and two great grandchildren.
