Rose M. (Celiesius) Hansen

Rose M. Hansen (Nee: Celiesius), age 88, died Saturday, June 20, 2009, at Hospitality Nursing and Rehabilitation Home in Kenosha, WI.

She was born December 8, 1920, in Racine to the late Charles J. and Mary A. (Nee: Daleski) Celiesius. On April 18, 1942, Rose was united in marriage to “the love of her life” Howard W. Hansen at St. Casimir’s Church in Racine. In 2007 they celebrated their 65th anniversary with family and friends.

Most of her life was spent being a loving wife and mother. She also gave many years to the caring of her mother and father-in-law. Rose especially enjoyed cooking, sewing, traveling with her husband, volunteering at Harmony Club, being with family and just appreciating the simple joys of life.

She is survived by her daughter, JoAnn M. Hansen of Racine; her nieces, Janet Geisner of Racine and Jean Fisher of San Diego; and other family members. In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her two brothers, Charles and Frank Celiesius. In 2008 she lost her husband, Howard, and grieved his loss until her death.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, June 29, 2009, at 10:30 a.m. at St. Richard Catholic Church, 1503 Grand Ave., with Rev. Ronald Gramza assisted by Deacon Howard Wirtz. Relatives and friends may meet with the family at the church on Monday from 9:30 a.m. until time of Mass. In lieu of flowers, memorials have been suggested to St. Richard Catholic Church of Racine, St. Monica’s Senior Citizen Home, or S.E. WI Alzheimer’s Association.

Her daughter would like to thank Dr. Robert Gullberg for the many years of professional and compassionate care he gave to Rose.
