While packing her belongings, said sister Dori Schlins, her siblings found what Hanson planned to use in her final year before retiring: pack upon pack of red pens.

Hanson was preceded in death by her father, Carleton Hanson, and sisters Betty Rossing and Carolyn Schildgen. In addition to sisters, she’s survived by her mother, Amy Hanson, and brothers David, Paul and Roy Hanson.

A memorial will be held at 6:30 p.m. Friday at St. Olaf’s Boe Memorial Chapel. Services will be held at 11 a.m. Nov. 8 at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Northfield.
