Bertha Hanson

December 15, 1928 - February 1, 2020

Bertha Hanson, 91 of Shadyside, Ohio, went to be with the Lord on February 1, 2020, at Reynolds Memorial Hospital in Glen Dale, WV. with her family by her side.

She was born December 15, 1928 a daughter of the late Rudy Miller and Angeline (Brunelli) Miller in Dilles Bottom, Ohio.

Bertha was a retired hospitality aide at Anwar Eye Center and Mound View Health Center in Moundsville, WV.

She was a member of the Lincoln Avenue United Methodist Church, a proud graduate of Bellaire High School, and a US Army veteran.

Generous with her time and anything she had, Bertha was a true Christian, always trying to live out her faith by helping others, her family, friends or anyone in need.

Always joyful, she loved people and never met a stranger.

She loved to dance and did so up into her eighties.

Her hobby was sending cards, sending out hundreds over the years to bring happiness to others.

Bertha always offered encouragement to others in the form of either a kind word, a big smile, some laughter, prayers offered, or a hug.

Her greatest love and enjoyment was her family especially her great-grandchildren.

Words could never adequately express how unselfish and loving a wife, mother and grandmother she was.

She will continue to walk with her family each day and live in their hearts forever.

Bertha was preceded in death by her parents, her son Louie Hanson and a sister Marian DeGenova.

She is survived by her husband Art Hanson Sr. whom she married on Feburary 25, 1964, spending nearly 56 years together.

In addition she is survived by her children, Mary (Phil) Richardson of Shadyside, Ohio, and Arthur “Little Art” (Theresa) Hanson Jr. of Bellaire, Ohio along with four grandchildren Benjamin Hanson, Brittany (Anson) Core, Ryan Richardson, and Sean Hanson and five great-grandchildren.
