Our Losses
Winsome Gane (age 89), wife of Dr. Erwin Gane, fell asleep in Jesus early Sunday morning, April 23rd.  She had suffered a stroke, then later slipped into a coma and died peacefully.  Winsome is remem-bered as a wonderful piano teacher, devoted wife for 65 years, loving mother, and a kind, tenderhearted friend who loved Jesus and others wholeheartedly. Condolences may be sent to, or 1315 Aspen Place, Loveland, CO 80538.
Geneva Hanson (age 94), retired missionary and teacher, entered her rest in Jesus Thursday, April 20th.  Geneva's health steadily declined in the last year to the point where she was confined to her bed after a third fall.  She was a longtime member of the Saint Helena and Calistoga Churches.  She is preceded in death by her husband Otto and survived by her loving daughter, Judee Hanson and grandson, Christopher Martin.  There will be a family graveside service in August in Washington next to her husband's burial place.
