Obituary

Muriel (Dolly) Hanson passed peacefully on Dec.12, 2018 in Marinette WI.

Muriel was born in Hancock, Michigan on April 28, 1932 to Hilda (Kotajarvi) and Frederick Tascott.

She met Michigan Tech student, William Hanson during her senior year in High School. He proposed to her shortly before he left to serve in the Air Force in San Antonio, Texas. They were married on Dec. 23rd, 1950 and celebrated the birth of their only child, William Louis in Dec. 1951.

Muriel and their son traveled with Bill to many Air Force bases across the States eventually moving to Edinburgh, Scotland, and Wiesbaden, Germany. In 1970 they settled in Menominee and Marinette when William began teaching at Menominee High School. In 1985 they retired to a small farm in Hermansville, MI.

Muriel was a chef, master gardener, artist, cake decorator, candle maker, sewer, potter, and knitter. But her true love was weaving.

Muriel always said her years at the farm were her most enjoyable. It was there that she raised sheep, had them sheared, carded and spun the wool into yarn. She grew natural dye plants and then would dye the yarn and weave beautiful cloth on one of her many looms.

Muriel was active in the Baileys Fishing Museum, the Master Gardeners and The Sheep to Shawl Guild.

Muriel is survived by her husband of 67 years, William (Sarge) Hanson; her son Wm. Louis (Linda); her three grandsons, Joseph of Marinette, Nicholas of Philadelphia and Michael of Salt Lake City.

Friends may call at Hansen-Onion-Martell funeral home on Saturday, December 15, 2018, from 12 noon until 1 p.m. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. with the Rev. Glenn Kanestrom officiating.

The family of Muriel wishes to thank the Nurses and caregivers of BAMC Hospital and the Luther Home for their care and compassion.
