Hanne Sørensen became a widow at the age of 34, when her husband Poul Thomsen Sørensen disapeared with his ship on a trip to Iceland. A photo of the ship has the place of honour on the tiled wall in the south livingroom. On the opposite wall amongst some rather special things are photos of Hanne and her husband.
In these modest surroundings Widow Hanne Sørensen lived with her son Hans and her two daughters Karen and Maren.
Hannes house is without question the best preserved exampel of a modest but by no means poor Sønderho home, from the time, when Fanø was the homeport for a large sailingship fleet. The contents of the house are of unmeasurable cultural and historical worth.
The contents of the house have been in constant use until Karen in 1965 had to move to live with her sister Widow Maren Thompsen. The two sisters have with great reverance kept and preserved their childhood home.
