Joan Hansen

November 25, 1937 — May 9, 2023

Fielding

 

Joan Christine McArthur Hansen, passed away at the age of 85 on May 9, 2023 in Logan, Utah. She was born on November 25, 1937 in Mt. Pleasant, Utah to Perry and Lavon McArthur. Her early years were spent in Mt. Pleasant where she attended Sanpete High School class of 1955.

Joan married Dwight Elwin Hansen on June 15, 1963, and settled in Fielding, Utah. Together they made a life full of love and devotion until his passing on August 31, 2021.

Joan was a wonderful lady with a lifelong commitment to hard work. She began her career at Brigham Apparel before transitioning to Coast to Coast/Greers Hardware where she worked for many years, finally retiring in the early 2000s.

Joan had an unwavering faith in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints which guided her throughout her life. She served devotedly in many capacities within the church over the years, including Cub Scout Leader.  She enjoyed meeting with the "Lunch Bunch" ladies and participating in the Young Homemakers Association.


Joan loved writing; she authored many Fielding Flashes articles for The Leader. Her selflessness reached beyond her church and career as she took joy in working with children, particularly those from Fielding where she lived for some time.

Joan is survived by her five children: Ralph (Linda), Renee (Klane), Kenneth (Jackie), Roy (Christy), Ryan (Shelley); twenty-seven grandchildren; forty-four great-grandchildren; with one more on its way; and sister-in-law Karen McArthur

She was preceded in death by her loving husband Dwight; parents; son Roger; grandson Dakota Clark; sisters Phyllis and Doris; and brother Robin.

The family would like to express their sincerest gratitude to the Fielding ward for their constant outpouring of love and support. A special thank you goes to Rocky Mountain Care of Logan.
