April 26, 1919 - August 29, 2016
Eunice G. Hansen is at last waltzing with her beloved Harold at the Diamond S. She passed away peacefully Monday evening in St. James Healthcare with her family at her side. Eunice was born Saturday, April 26, 1919 in Boulder, Montana to Oren "Bud" and Lula (Slade) Taylor. She graduated from Jefferson County High School and in October of 1940 she married Harold Hansen in Helena. Together they owned and operated the movie theater in Boulder then the Star Theater in Whitehall. They also owned the Rialto Theater in Deer Lodge and operated theaters in Lincoln and Helmville as well as the Rialto in Butte for four years. They operated the Fox Theater, now the Mother Lode, for 13 years and Eunice also owned a laundry-mat and co-owned the Kangaroo Pouch in the Butte Plaza Mall with her daughter. Simply stated, Eunice wasn't afraid of work, but she always had time for her family and friends and enjoyed her weekly Friday lunches with Betty, Vonnie, Norma and Jean. She is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law, Mark and Holly Hansen of Butte and David and Ruth Anne Hansen of Helena, her daughter and son-in-law, Lucy and John Helstrom of Butte, grandchildren: Jens and Kaina Hansen, Alynn and Justin Jonart, Douglas and Alessandra Hyyppa, Craig Hyyppa, Lisa Hyyppa, Michael Hyyppa, Steve Helstrom and Laura and Scott Tresidder. Also surviving are 16 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild as well as her brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Jens and Georgia Hansen of South Carolina. She is preceded in death by her husband Harold in 1994, her daughter, Judy Hansen, and three brothers, Jim, Lou and Warren Taylor. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Bagdad Shrine Temple Transportation Fund, 314 W. Park Street, Butte, MT 59701.
