Patricia Ann (Patty) Hanson, age 68, a 12 year resident of Bullhead City, Ariz., passed away on Tuesday, June 4, 2013, in Bullhead City, Ariz. surrounded by the love and comfort of her family. She was born March 9, 1945 in Alliance, Neb., to Helen (Taylor) and Raymond C. Pierson.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her sister; and her grandson Chris Hanson.

She is survived by her husband of 47 years Robert D. Hanson Sr., of Bullhead City, Ariz. her son Robert D. Hanson Jr., her son, James E. Hanson of Denver Colorado, her daughter Bonnie L. Rogers, and four grandchildren.

Patty was business in the early 80's as a full-charge bookkeeper in Laramie, Wyoming. She later managed Parkwood Estates, an active retirement home for seniors in Fort Collins, CO.

In 2007 she was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer. She was expected to live a short time, however, with her typical "just watch me attitude", she fought the disease for nearly 6 years, all the while remaining active and productive.

A private memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Inflammatory Breast Cancer Research Foundation or to the Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation.
