Karin Hansen

Karin H. Hansen was born May 22, 1937, in Mainz, Germany. She was one of three children born to Herbert Halm and Katharina Lindner. Karin grew up in Germany and is where she would meet Ronald Hansen while he was stationed there during WWII. She would later travel by ship to the United States and her and Ronald would meet up again. Shortly thereafter they would get married. Karin only spoke German when she arrived in the United States and learned to speak English, became an American citizen and also learned how to drive. Karin and Ronald would have their only child, Rick, while living in Minnesota. In the early 1960’s, their family would relocate to Arizona, calling Phoenix then Safford their home. Karin was a kind and caring individual who enjoyed raising her family and being a homemaker. Her gentleness and caring personality will be missed by family and friends alike.

Rick and Marsha and family, Im so sorry for your loss. I remember loving to hear her speak because of her accent. Recently, I drove down their street and passed their house and was wondering about both your parents, Rick. Now I know, they are having a grand reunion. Love to you all!! Love, Stephanie Mattice Walters

Karin was one of our customers at the Safford Animal Hospital for years. She was always a pleasure deal with. She brought her dogs in for grooming on a regular schedule and Terry was her dogs groomer. I know Terry would be saddened by her passing so on her behalf I want to extend her sympathy and the rest of us who worked with her so many years ago. We miss Terry and all of our customer friends like Karin. Rest in peace all. Bonnie Ferguson
