Burlington - Ruth Briggs Hanson passed away quietly, surrounded by her family and close friends on the evening of August 6, 2018. Ruth was born to Ruth and Arthur Briggs on December 21, 1927 in Lincoln Vermont.

Ruth leaves her husband of 68 years, Jesse C. Hanson, daughter Linda R. Hanson, son Brian J. Hanson, daughter-in-law Pamela Scheele-Hanson, son Bruce E. Hanson and daughter-in-law Maureen Betz Hanson, grandson Ryan Donovan Hanson, granddaughter Lindsay Paige Hanson, granddaughter Michelle (Daniel) Fleshman-Carmona and great-granddaughters Meriah, Italia and Paloma Carmona. She also leaves her brothers-in-law Earl and Charles Hanson and many loving nieces, nephews and their loving spouses and beautiful families.

Ruth greatly cherished her many friends and counted them as true treasures in her life. Her love, kindness and caring of others was her greatest attribute.

Our mother spent the last few days in the Estuary Room Hospice Suite at Porter/UVM Medical Center in the wonderful care of the nurses, doctors and staff. This extraordinary place enabled her family and friends to be with her and for this we are grateful.

Please join us on Saturday August 11, 2018, 11:30 a.m. at Burnham Hall, Lincoln, Vermont as we honor and celebrate Ruth Alice Briggs Hanson and her life well-lived. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Addison County Home Health & Hospice, Middlebury, Vermont or to ARCH (Addison Respite Care Home) at Porter Hospital, Middlebury, Vermont.
