Mrs. Hanson continued her residence in Harrison. Her stepchildren from this marriage are Caroline Pyle, Wilma Geiser, Herb, Bob and Ralph Hanson. Also surviving are her sister, Marvel Wagy of Casselberry, Fla., a half sister, Marjorie Cooper of Houston, Tex..; 13 step grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, 11 step great-grandchildren.
