Romaine A. Hanson, age 79, of Erie, was surrounded by her loving family before she was peacefully escorted by angels to the Gates of Heaven on November 28, 2023 where she was joyfully reunited with those who passed before her. Romaine was born in Dubois Pa. , on October 31, 1944, a daughter of the late Rome and Anna (Abramovich) Mabie. Until her retirement, Romaine had been a nurse for many years providing that same loving care and comfort that she bestowed on her own precious ones with her most valuable accomplishment being her dedication in raising her family. If you had the privilege of deeply knowing Romaine, also known as Rhoda, Boo, Mermaid, Mama or Nunga then you know she was never further than a phone call away. She was strong, selfless and the most loving woman, with an oversized heart who purposefully lived every moment for her family and friends. Anyone who met or knew her, could feel the love she had for each individual family member because she was always more than willing to brag about them. To both Romaine's immediate and extended family members, she was the "Prayer Broker", the one to call when prayers or help were needed and she could always be counted on arriving without hesitation, no matter the time of day or night. She enjoyed several hobbies over the years, ceramics, playing bingo, reading, crocheting, cross stitch, and watching Law and Order. But what she truly enjoyed most was a cigarette, a cold cup of coffee, a "piece" of cake and warm conversations with those she cherished, often until the sun was about to rise. Romaine is survived by her four, loving daughters, Cathi Beemus (Fred) of Warren, Pa. , Chrisi Valerio (Doug) of Erie, Pa. , Kim Buell (Shelby) of Medina, Ohio, and Carolyn Selby ( preceded in death by her husband Charles) of Erie, Pa. , Eleven grandchildren, Freddie Beemus, DJ Valerio (Bri), Joey Valerio, Josh Valerio (Bree), Ellen Valerio, Tyler Buell (Katie), Austin Buell, Brendyn Buell, Alex Miller (Chuck), Chelsee Selby, Meeah Selby, several great-grandchildren, sister, Colleen Foltyn (Jack) and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by five brothers, Billy, Reggie, Bubs, Mickey, and Chuck Mabie along with three sisters, Geri Yount, Becky Hoff and Evelyn Kirkwood. Romaine's family welcomes you to celebrate her life and to share special memories of their mother at the Kloecker Funeral Home and Crematory, Inc 2502 Sassafras Street, Erie, Pa on Saturday, December 2, 2023 from 1:00pm until the time of the service at 4:00pm.
