HANSON, Helen Ann - It is with much sadness that the family of Helen Ann Hanson (nee Porteous) shares the news of her passing, after her courageous and dignified battle with cancer. Loved by Tom for 45 years. Devoted, caring, and loving Mom to Jennifer (John), Jo-Ann (Scott), and Justin (Nicole), and best ever Nannie, Grandma Ann and Mommila to Riley, Laurel, Tanner, Tyson, Ella, and Ava. She will be missed by mother Helen Porteous (Brantford), and siblings: twin sister Lynn (Brian) of Waubaushene, Ken (Jean) of Brantford, Bob (Donna) of Cathcart, sister-in-law Jan of Simcoe, Kathy of Toronto, Susan (Paul) of Paris, Wendy (John) of Kitchener, Nancy (Brad) of Waterford, Holly (Steve) of St. George, James (Jill) of Brantford, and Ruth (John) of Burford. Fondly remembered by Tom's family: Margaret (Jim) of East Oxford, Grace of Prince Edward Island, Ellen (Tom) of Scotland, Bruce of Scotland, and Marianna (Murray) of Scotland, and sisters-in-law Nora Hanson and Joyce Hanson. Predeceased by father Edward Porteous and brother Bill Porteous. Ann has left a legacy of her baking treats and cabbage rolls for her girls who are still perfecting the craft, and her treats were always shared with family and friends. She will be missed as a true friend to so many. Ann dedicated several years to volunteering for the MS Society, Heart and Stroke Foundation, and Cancer Society, as well as being a devoted member of Otterville United Church. She was a volunteer friend of the Optimists and helped with several Chamber of Commerce events. Ann sends hugs and more hugs to all who walked this journey with her and her family. Long days, long nights, You bore the pain And hoped for cure, but all in vain, Then God decided what was best, He took you home and gave you rest. Thank you to Suzanne Christo for her sincere love and care so that Mom could be at home.
