Marjorie Hanson

Your Hug Meant the World
Nobody else held me so tight
Or made me feel so right
No one’s eyes shined so bright with love
As my mom, who is now high above.
Tamsen Butler

  • Your mom was a beautiful person. I remember when she worked on my mom and dad’s farm and my playmate was Aggie. Such a genuine soul and so sorry for your loss.

  • So sorry for your loss. Marj was one of the most cheerful people I have ever known. I worked with her on my family tobacco farm (Abbott) and shared many laughs with her and my mom. She was a lovely person and will be missed by her family and friends.

  • My deepest condolences to Marj’s entire family. I worked with Marj and Aggie for few years at the bar and it was made so much easier just knowing we all had Marj standing behind our backs ready to assist us any way we needed. We always treated me so very kind and with respect. May your memories find you some peace at this difficult time.
