Valborg Tove Hansen
Born April 13 1928 and passed away peacefully on February 7 2010 after a long battle with a lung disease.
Val was born and grew up in Ballard, and graduated from Ballard high school in 1946.  Val has resided on Mercer Island since 1960.  She was the youngest of six children that her mother raised them alone after her father passed away when she was only two years old.  Val worked as a waitress while going to Ballard high school, and later she attended Grandview College for two years. In 1948 she traveled to Danmark with her mother, Mini Kilgren and one sister Herdis to visit family. While in Danmark visiting extended family, she met the love of her life and future husband Kaj Hansen.  They were married in Danmark in 1949. Later Val returned to U.S. where her son Greg was born, and Kaj soon followed. Val attained a job with Farmers New World Life Insurance in the early 1950’s and worked there for 38 years before retiring as a Senior Underwriter in 1993.  In retirement she enjoyed her family, especially her grandchildren.  Her favorite pass time included going downtown for lunch and shopping with family and friends. Val was a loving and caring person who brought joy and happiness to her family.  She enjoyed cooking and entertaining for them at home. She always had a smile on her face and looked at the lighter side of life.  Val and Kaj enjoyed many years of traveling to Europe and various ocean cruises. Val is survived by her loving and devoting husband of 60 years Kaj Hansen, her son Gregory, grandson Scott and his wife Lisa, and granddaughters Kerry and Erin.
