Today, June 27, 2020, our God in Heaven called home his newest Angel, Dorothy E. Hanselka. She was born April 12, 1922 in Brownwood, Texas to the late Judson and Gertrude McCrackin Black.

Visitation will be held Thursday, July 2, 2020 from 1:00 - 2:00 pm with a funeral service at 2:00 pm at First Baptist Church, 301 N. Glass St., Victoria. Interment to follow at Memory Gardens Cemetery.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband John Hanselka; 3 sisters, 1 brother and her daughter-in-law Barbara Hanselka.

She is survived by her 3 sons Wayne Hanselka and wife Lillian, Randall Hanselka and wife Barbara Smith and Larry Hanselka; grandchildren Kenneth Hanselka, Kevin Hanselka and wife Heather, Stefani AuBuchon and husband Bryan, Elizabeth McMaster and husband Steve and Alex Hanselka; 8 great grandchildren and 1 great great granddaughter.

Dorothy was a loving, caring, supportive and strong woman. She always thought of her family and others before herself. She was a homemaker, but served as a Pink Lady for 30+ years. She also served with the Home Demonstration Club for as many years. She was a loyal member of First Baptist Church. She loved to play games including Scrabble, Uno and Bingo.

The family extends a special thank you to the staff at Vitality Senior Living and Twin Pines Nursing Home for the love and care extended to their Mother. They also wish to thank Dr. Mehran Mezhad for the many years he took care of her.

Our deepest sympathy goes to the families of Wayne, Randy and Larry, and we want you to know of all the fond memories of your Mother that we have from growing up with the Hanselka family as next door neighbors. We are currently on a trip to Wyoming, and regret that we cannot attend Dorothy's service. May God's Blessings be with all of you.

So sorry to read of the passing of Dorothy this morning. She and John were like second parents to me for a lot of years. So many memories of lots of laughter and love. My sincerest sympathy to Wayne, Randy and especially Larry in their time of sorrow.
Love to all,
Sandye Kaiser Ermis
