GUILFORD and GREENVILLE, Megan Abele Hansen, RN, 35, of Guilford, passed away October 22, 2010 at Maine Medical Center in Portland, after a brief courageous battle with breast cancer. She was born September 29, 1975, the daughter of James and Beatrice (Bradford) Abele.

Megan graduated from Stearns High School in Millinocket, and went on to St. Joseph's College where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. Her career path has taken her to many hospitals before "coming home" to Mayo Regional Hospital, where she has worked for the last six years.

Megan had a passion for outdoor recreation, especially camping, photography, and U Maine Hockey that she shared with her family. She taught us "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideway, a margarita in one hand and a fun purse in the other, the body thoroughly used up and totally worn out, loudly proclaiming "WOW, THAT WAS A RIDE!!".

Megan was a cherished daughter and sister, devoted wife and mother, and trusting loyal friend whose passion for nursing touched all her co-workers and patients. Megan enriched the lives of everyone she touched.

She leaves behind her husband, Josh Hansen, and sons Tyler and Seth; her father and mother, Jim and Bea Abele; her sister, Donna Shorette and her family, Jason, Emma, and Trevor; her sister, Erin Abele; best friend forever, Jami Marston Barth; mother and step father in-law, Pam and Jim Quirke; and sister-in-law, Nicole Quirke; many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

A celebration of Megan's life will be held Thursday, October 28, 2010 at the Crosby & Neal Greenville chapel, located at the Masonic building, 281 Pritham Ave., at 3 P.M., with a time for visitation with Megan's family to follow.
