Judy was born Oct. 22, 1943, in Moline, to the late Sarah Jewel and Harold BeDuhn.
She married Brent Hanson on Feb. 23, 1964, and moved to San Antonio, Texas, when Brent was drafted into the U.S. Army and returned to the Quad-Cities upon his discharge in 1968. In 1991, she and Brent moved to Springfield, Ill., where they lived until Brent's death Sept. 23, 2012. Anyone and everyone was always welcome at the Hanson house in Springfield.
Judy was a member of Gloria Dei Presbyterian Church in Rock Island as well as an active member of King's Daughters and Home Extension. Judy was an avid reader who passed that love reading on to her daughters. Family and friends were Judy's passion and delight. She loved to host "Cousin's Get Togethers" and family reunions.
Judy is survived by two daughters, Jennifer Hanson, Fallbrook, Calif., and Becky Hanson, St. Louis, Mo. She also leaves behind numerous loving relatives and friends.
Becky and Jennifer would like to thank all those who were with their mother when they could not be.
Burial for Brent and Judy Hanson will take place at 1 p.m. on May 24, on Arsenal Island. Everyone who knew Brent and Judy are more than welcome to attend. The Arsenal requests that we rendezvous at a convenient place and enter the island together. We have chosen to meet in the parking lot at the i wireless Center, Moline, around 12:15 p.m. Everyone entering the island is required to have a valid form of identification. After interment, a gathering will be decided.
