Mrs. Hansbrough was born September 21, 1927, in Greenville, MS, during the flood, the elder daughter of Charles Milton Ham and Coley Erwin Ham and the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. E.G. Ham. She was married for more than fifty years to her childhood sweetheart, Robert Harold Hansbrough, also of Greenville, with whom she reared three daughters. During their years of residence in Greenville she was active in her church and the community. In 1968 the family moved to Monroe, LA, where Mrs. Hansbrough continued her service through her church activities at Grace Episcopal Church, particularly in ECW and the Altar Guild.

Following retirement the Hansbroughs lived at Hardtner Camp and Conference Center, Pollock, LA, where Mrs. Hansbrough was engaged in the ministry of hospitality. She received a number of awards, among them the Distinguished Servant Ministry Award in 2002 for 21 years of dedicated, faithful and committed service to the Bishop, clergy and people of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Louisiana. She was a recipient of the Bishop's Mount Olivet Award in 2004. In that year the Hansbroughs moved to Shreveport and transferred their church membership to St. Matthias, where Mrs. Hansbrough continued her service as the founding member of the St. Clair chapter of the Daughters of the King.

Mrs. Hansbrough is survived by her husband Bob; her three daughters, Ann Elizabeth Bishop of Tecumseh, KS, Coley Lou Hansbrough of Shreveport, LA, and Renee Susan Hansbrough of Baton Rouge, LA; sister Renee Paxton of Branson, MO; three grandchildren, Robert Daniel Bishop of Kansas City, MO, Glenn Ashley Carroll of Baton Rouge, LA, and Charlotte Emily Bishop of Tecumseh, KS; and one great-grandchild, Madeline Coley Bishop of Kansas City, MO.

The family is especially grateful for the love and care given to Mrs. Hansbrough by Reneé and Corry Wiggins as well as other family members and friends. Special thanks are extended to Dr. Manish Dhawan of Shreveport, LA, Dr. Rama Koya of Longview, TX, and the staff of Willis-Knighton Hospice.
