On the 2002 Abreast on the Creek Crew was a member by the name of Ann Hansen. This young athletic woman only paddled one season with AIAB and she thoroughly enjoyed it and the carpooling with the other four “Langley Laughing Ladies”. However she had four young daughters at home and felt the time commitment was too great.
She was born in New Zealand in 1956 and had lived in Langley since 1999. She was diagnosed in June 2008 with an aggressive form of Lymphoma and passed away on Feb. 9, 2009.
