Elsinore, Utah

    Our cherished mom, grandma, sister, and friend, Francis Kaye Jensen Hansen, 86, passed away at her home, December 4, 2023, surrounded by her four daughters and grandchildren who were her joy, light, and the beneficiaries of her unconditional love. Kaye was born October 26, 1937, in Richfield, to Leslie Niels and Mildred Louise Peterson Jensen.  
    Kaye was an only child until the age of nine where she grew up in a tiny, three-room house. She was adored by her parents, but had always longed for a sibling. She was thrilled to finally have a brother and sister when her parents adopted two cousins, Sandra Denise and Sydney Niels.  A few years later the family would expand again as three more cousins joined the family: Kent, Bradford, and Stanley Peterson. 
    Kaye lived in Richfield and graduated from high school in 1955. She worked for Mountain Bell as a telephone operator for many years.  
    On November 28, 1958, she married the love of her life, Havolyn Hansen. Together they raised four daughters while building a successful farming and ranching business in the small town of Elsinore. She was a dedicated and creative homemaker. She spent endless hours gardening, canning, sewing, and quilting. Kaye had a large heart and always put others' needs first. Her giving heart had no limits. 
    As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she ministered in many capacities. She was an active member of her community and was civically minded. She generously served our veterans as a life-long member of the American Legion Auxiliary. She enjoyed learning, was an avid reader, and was a member of The Literary Club. Gardening was her passion, and she happily shared her abundance with family, friends or anyone in need. Kaye was a skilled seamstress and quilter. The Veterans’ Hospital, the Pink Ladies organization, and many others have been the recipients of her cherished, hand-stitched gifts.
    She was a lover of all people; one did not have to be blood to be family. Always a selfless giver, whether it was a loaf of bread, fresh veggies from her garden, a jar of homemade jam, or a few bills slipped into a pocket; she had a gift for lifting spirits and mending broken hearts. 
Grandma Kaye was the heart of her family. Her home was a safe-haven to many and everyone’s favorite place to be. Her arms were open to all, and no one was turned away. She was truly an angel on earth. 
    She lived her life motto, “Love is an action word.” 
    She is survived and adored by her daughters: Leslie (Lane) Abraham, Michelle (E.J.) Corry, Melanie (Dan) Owen, and Lynette (David) Jorgensen; brother, Bradford Peterson; 18 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren. 
    She was preceded in death by her husband, Havolyn; parents; sisters: Verlene Bishop, Sandra Dutton; and brother, Sydney Jensen; cousins: Stanley Peterson and Kent Peterson; granddaughter, Joy Jorgensen; and great-grandson Drew McWilliams-Jorgensen. 
    Funeral services will be held Monday, December 11, 2023, at 12:00 Noon in the Elsinore 1st Ward Chapel, where friends may call from 10:30-11:30 am.  Burial will be in the Elsinore City Cemetery.
