Rose Marie Hanson was born October 4th, 1934, the daughter of Elzor and Frances (Siemers) Matte. She was born and raised on the family farm in Minnesota Township, Burke County.
She was a waitress at the Bowbells City Café and worked at the Peterson Grocery Store until meeting the love of her life LaVern. On January 3, 1954 she was united in marriage to LaVern James Hanson at the Kenmare Methodist Church. They made their home and living on the family farm as the 3rd generation, retiring from farming in 1999, but continued living on the farm until 2009 when LaVern passed away.
Together they had two sons Duane and Dean who were her pride and joy along with her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
She was a member of the United Methodist Church of Bowbells, The Order of the Eastern Star and was mother advisor for Rainbow for Girls. She was a square dance teacher for 12 years.
Rose enjoyed spending time with her family. She loved her time spent at Mouse River Park. She had a love of flowers, gardening, and making sure her yard was immaculate. She could play the organ by ear, and even in her final days was worried about when she could play her organ. Dancing was one of her favorite things to do. She had a love of people and was always willing to help when needed. You could usually find her in the kitchen making sure everyone was fed, or by LaVern’s side helping him. She looked forward to the Hostfest every year. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother and will be missed by all that knew her.
