Theresa L. (Gentile) Hanson, 69, of Lebanon, formerly of Glastonbury, living wife to Herbert L. Hanson III, passed away peacefully on June 6, 2020. She was born on August 3, 1950, in Hartford, to the late Vincent and Eleanor (Vivolo) Gentile. Theresa was an entrepreneur, running a multitude of businesses. She achieved the Top Consultant Award for all of New England for Motive Cosmetics from 2014-2016. However, Theresa was most proud of her work with animals. She was the former President of the Protector of Animals for numerous years and was a key contributor to acquiring their current location in East Hartford. Aside from her love for work and for animals, Theresa was an extremely loving wife, mother and grandmother. She cherished her family and friends more than anything.
Besides her husband, she leaves her daughter, Traci Murphy and her husband Michael of Glastonbury as well as their children, Grady, Casey and Maxwell, a step-son, Richard Hanson and his wife Lisa, of Glastonbury, as well as a brother, Jimmy Gentile and his wife Dolly and a sister, Elaine Taylor and her daughters, Hope, Lisa, Dawn and Robin, who she cherished. Theresa will be missed dearly by her two dogs, Trixie and Libby and her cat, Miss Kitty. She is predeceased by a brother, Richard Gentile, a brother-in-law, John Taylor and sister-in-law, Pat Gentile.
A graveside sercice will be held Friday, June 12, 2020. Theresa’s funeral arrangements have been entrusted to The Farley-Sullivan Funeral home, Glastonbury. In Lieu of flowers, the family has asked to make memorial donations to a local animal charity of your choice, or Saint Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
