Obituary

Barbara (Calligan) Hanson, 83, passed away Sunday, December 9, 2007, at her home in Waukee, Iowa.

Barbara was born in Kenilworth, New Jersey, but was raised in Miami, Florida, with her three brothers, Bud, Gig, and Jack. She spent most of her married life in Iowa, with a short stay in California. Although she accomplished much in her life, Barbara's most enduring legacy will be that of successfully raising her eight children, Karen, Steve, Craig, Renae, Roger, Barry, Bob, and Debbie, as well as being a devoted grandmother and great- grandmother. Barbara had, among other admirable qualities, the simple but wonderful ability to befriend a stranger with an endearing smile and heartfelt hug.

She was a dedicated community activist, and as such, helped to establish the Waukee Community Center. Barbara will be greatly missed as a devoted mother and loyal friend.

Visitation will be at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday at the Westover Funeral Home with the service following at 11:30 a.m. Roger Schlaefer will officiate.

Immediately following the service, all are invited to join the family for a reception at the funeral home.

In lieu of usual remembrances, contributions in memory of Barbara Hanson my be directed to the Waukee Community Center in care of the Waukee Foundation, 230 Hwy. 6, Waukee, Iowa 50263.
