          Louise Marie Hanson, age 87, a longtime resident of Brodhead, passed away on Sunday, July 2, 2017, at Azura Memory Care, Clinton, WI.  She was born on October 12, 1929, in Beloit, WI, the daughter of Ernest and Clara (Davidson) Isely.  She married Ralph Hanson Jr. on November 16, 1947 in Beloit, WI.  He preceded her in death on November 20, 2007 after 60 years together.

     Louise farmed with Ralph for many years in Southwestern Wisconsin.  They settled in Brodhead when she worked as a cook for both the Chalet and The Harris House, both of Brodhead, and then retired from Woodbridge.  She enjoyed crocheting, sewing, crafting, fishing at their cabin, and going to the casino.

     Funeral services will be held at 12 p.m., Thursday, July 6, 2017, at the D.L. Newcomer Funeral Home, Brodhead, WI with Pastor Peder Johanson officiating. Burial will be in Greenwood Cemetery, Brodhead.  Visitation will be held from 10:30 a.m. until time of services at the funeral home.  

     The family would like to thank all of the people who lovingly cared for her in her last years, including Vicky Jones and Barb Kohl, St. Clare Friedensheim Assisted Living in Monroe, and Azura Memory Care in Clinton, WI.
