Marian D. Hanson, 89, Edina MN passed away on Tuesday, January 26, 2016 at Vernon Terrace Assisted Living Facility in Edina, MN.
Marian was born on March 20, 1926 to Halga & Charlie Thompson where she was raised on the family farm near Clifford ND. Marian earned her teaching degree from Mayville State College. She married Hilbert Hanson in 1953. Through the years she taught in a one-room schoolhouse near Clifford, a school in Sarles, ND and primarily taught Special Ed for Kindred Public Schools where she retired in 1987. She was dedicated to working with kids and loved serving her church. She was a committed wife & loving mother and immensely enjoyed her time with her grandkids. Marian’s wit, humor, compassion and love of hamburgers will surely be missed!
