Romelda Ann Norma Hanson, 87, Moorhead, MN, died Tuesday, March 15, 2022 at Eventide on Eighth, Moorhead, MN.
Romelda was born on August 22, 1934 in Roseau, MN to Nels and Nellie (Edwardson) Braaten. She grew up on the family farm near Ross, MN. She graduated from Roseau High School in 1952 and Concordia College, Moorhead, MN in 1956, with a BA in Home Economics. Romelda married Lyle Hanson on August 19, 1956. She taught home economics in Ellsworth, MN, Battle Lake, MN and Pelican Rapids, MN. She worked for Oak Grove High School, JoAnn Fabric, Kvamme Travel, Eventide Nursing Home and Tammy’s Angels Home Healthcare where she made many dear friends.
Romelda’s house was always open for friends and family, for a cup of coffee, a cake and a cookie, a home cooked meal or a place to stay. Over the years, many have found Lyle and Romelda’s home to be a “home away from home”, while traveling or while staying at one of the area colleges. Romelda maintained lifelong bonds with her Pelican Rapids friends and considered those friendships treasures for life. She was an active member of Christ the King Lutheran Church in Moorhead, serving in the Altar Guild, Quilters’ Circle, WELCA, Bible Study Leader and Confirmation Mentor.
Romelda will be remembered and missed by her husband of 65 years, Lyle Hanson; two sons, Jon (Linda) Hanson and Larry (Shannon) Hanson; granddaughters, Felicia Hanson, Kayla (Ryan) Hoel, Kathryn Benson (Greg Krathwohl), Emily Hanson, Anna Hanson; one grandson, Erik Hanson; twin great-grandsons, Jackson and Soren Hoel; and his son-in-law, Lewis Benson
She was preceded in death by her parents; daughter, Debra Benson; an infant son, Bruce Hanson; grandson, Andrew Hanson; two brothers, Marvin and Maynard; and her sister, Lila Anderson.
