Fillmore, UT – Maybelle Victoria Hansen, age 98, passed away Saturday, April 29, 2017, at the Fillmore Hospital. She was born September 27, 1918, in Minneapolis, MN to Carl William Anderson and Elsie Edith Swanson Anderson.
Maybelle was raised in Minneapolis, MN and was privileged with the opportunity to travel extensively. On a trip to San Francisco, she met and later married Harry Peter Hansen on January 17, 1940, in Northern California. They settled in Marysville, CA where they raised their family and where she lived for the next 50 years before relocating to Utah. Maybelle was a homemaker and gifted seamstress. She had a passion for sewing, crafting and doll collecting, and loved travel, camping and rock hounding. She also enjoyed keeping active and giving back to the community by quilting hundreds of blankets and donating them to the abused women and children’s shelters in St. George and Richfield. While in Fillmore, she developed many close and cherished friendships that she talked about often.
Maybelle was preceded in death by her parents, siblings, spouse and children; Billy, Loren and step-daughter Elsie, and grand-daughter, Sandi.
