It is with great sadness that the family of Carol Luth Hansen announces her passing, on Thursday, October 31st, 2019, at the age of 88 years old. She had suffered a hemorrhagic stroke on September 27th. Despite her body's incredible ability to heal, was overcome by its effects and passed peacefully with family by her side.
This sweet, feisty and beautiful woman loved her family, and music, and spent her entire life dedicated to both. Carol, and Omar, were there for their children's—and grandchildren's—events, and family gatherings, throughout their lives. Carol began playing the piano at four years old, studied music at Milwaukee Downer College, and spent her adult life teaching piano and later voice lessons. She was an opera vocal student for years and appeared in New York Gilbert & Sullivan Productions including "Pirates of Penzance," "The Mikado," and "H.M.S. Pinafore."
Carol will be lovingly remembered by her children: Elizabeth (John), Jennifer (Anthony), Heather and Bill; and her six grandchildren: Sean, Bridget, Pierce, Greta, Mia and Cameron. Carol was predeceased by her husband of 55 years, Omar Hansen, Jr, and son, Omar Hansen, III.
