Eileen Hansen

It is with a heavy heart that we mourn the loss of our beloved Eileen Marie Hansen.

On May 6, 2024, after a courageous battle with cancer, Eileen passed in the loving care of her husband Jeff, with their beautiful children, Lucy and William, by her side.

Eileen was born on March 5th, 1968, in Point Pleasant, New Jersey. At 5 years of age, she moved to Vermont with her family where her love of nature began to take root. She especially loved the peace of the woods. Upon graduating high school, she decided small town life was no longer what she needed and headed to Boston, Massachusetts. Eileen worked hard, putting herself through college, earning her degrees in Anthropology and Archaeology. 

Eventually Eileen met the man of her dreams. They wed shortly after and had two beautiful children, Lucy and William. Family was her top priority. They settled and raised their children in Kansas City, MO. Eileen’s greatest achievement in life was being a wife and mother. She inspired her family to be kind and generous.

She had a deep passion for the culinary arts, which led her to become an outstanding baker and cook. She hosted many private parties, school events, and outstanding home cooked meals for her friends and family. She spread her love through her own love of food.

Eileen had a significant impact on many people's lives. She cared for us all and she will be greatly missed. Eileen left this earthly world peacefully, reuniting with her heavenly family.

She was preceded in death by her brother Andy Mays and her niece Mary Harris. Leaving behind her parents Robert and Audry Mays. Siblings, Henry Mays, Darrell Mays, Suzie Lowe, Elizabeth Harris. And her 23 nieces and nephews.

And most importantly, leaving behind are her husband Jeff of 29 years, and her children Lucy and William, whom she loved dearly.

May the spirit of Eileen’s love and passion carry us through until we meet again.
