Marlene Hansen | Obituary

Marlene Hansen of Renton, loved by so many, passed June 6 of this year after a blessedly short battle with cancer. She was 86 with a robust love of life and the life she shared with her family. As a professional piano player, Marlene filled the lives of everyone around her with music.

Her true loves, travel and the outdoors kept her active with a hiking group where she presided as president well into her 80’s. She is survived by her loving husband Robert Hansen of 25 years, daughters Kelly Bennett-Aurdahl of Kent and Julie Gerlach of Kirkland, grandsons Justin Gerlach of Kent, Tristan Aurdahl of Kent and granddaughter Kasey Gerlach of Tacoma.

A memorial service will be held in October and we would love for everyone to attend.

Details will be posted at Please share pictures and memories with us. We would love to see them!
