Marian Hanson

March 20, 1926 - January 26, 2016


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!

She is survived by her son Perry (Christine), her grandkids Abigail (22) & Charlie (20), their father Jeff (Monica) Fazendin, siblings Lorraine Rygg & Bud (Elaine) Thompson.

She was preceded in death by her husband Hilbert, daughter Nancy, her parents and siblings Eleanor, Sylvia and Glen.

    Perry and Chrissy, many thoughts and prayers sent your way – I really enjoyed visiting with Marion and Mom and of course there was always plenty of coffee when they lived near each other in Fargo. Even in your sorrow you reminded us all that she is now with Hilbert and Nancy, and that makes me smile. I’m sure my Mom is also having coffee with everyone too. Marion will be missed. It warms my heart you are having the funeral at Kindred Lutheran – great upbringing and very glad we all have the faith to comfort us during these difficult times. Sincerely, Melody Busch

    What a wonderful obituary in memory of our Marion. I am so thankful for this lady in my life and for all of her family members. The memories are all too many, as are our heart aches. Perry your family has been blessed by all that you are, as are your friends. You carry the humor and spirit of your family members and I thank God for you all. I think that these funny memories keep everyone alive in our hearts … the giggles are many. Take care of you and Chrissy. Many hugs to Chaz, Abby, Jeff and Monica. We love you all and are always here for you. xoxo <3

    Many of our milestones of life are anticipated with pleasure. However, the passing of your dad, sister, and now, your mother, are the ones that we dread. However, they are having coffee with Kathy and many other friends from Kindred, etc in Heaven. That picture gives us hope and a semblance of pleasure in anticipation of joining them sometime in the future. When that will be….only God knows. However, we know it will BE! Condolences for the present, Perry!

    Condolences to you on the death of this wonderful lady. I had many wonderful visits with Marian as her pastor and I know both how much she loved her family and how confident she was of God’s presence in life and in death. God’s comfort for you in this time.
