    A 91-year-old Elizabethtown resident quietly died at Hardin Memorial Hospital at 5:24 a.m. Monday, but her family and friends said that her life was anything but quiet.
    Even before Dot Hansen and her now-deceased husband, John, moved here from New Jersey in the 1960s, she was committed to community involvement, said friend Nancy Lea Owen.
