In Memory

Kristyne McGill (Hansen)


1949 – 2018

Kristyne McGill Hansen passed away peacefully in her sleep in the early hours of March 14th cradled in her husband's arms.  She fought a quick but courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote “She was beautiful, but not like the girls in the magazine. She was beautiful for the way she thought. She was beautiful for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn't beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful deep down in her soul.” He knew our Kristy well.

Kris was born March 25th 1949, in Salt Lake City. She was the oldest of two children born to Angus Nielsen McGill and Doris May Brooks. On September 20th, 2008, she married Brent W Hansen. Although they were only together a short time, she considered it the happiest years of her life. On April 9th, 2016, Kris and Brent were sealed in the Oquirrh Mountain temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and began their eternity together. 

Kris worked 43 years for a combination of Mt. Bell, US West, Qwest, and Century Link where she made many lasting and loving friendships. Kris is survived by her husband Brent, daughter Brooke Kebschull, son William (Jessica) Kebschull III, mother Doris, brother Neil (Jean) McGill, six grandchildren, one great grandson, and a ton of nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her father Angus, daughter Briney, and niece Amanda.
