Beverly Ann Hanson

January 30, 1934 - July 24, 2019

Beverly Ann Hanson, 85, of Cape Coral, FL, passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her family on July 24, 2019. Beverly was born on January 30, 1934 in Madison, WI to the late Lyle Shepard and Anna Beld Shepard.

Beverly was of the Lutheran faith and she cherished her friends and family above all else. With the generous heart of her husband, she was blessed to surround herself with beautiful things she loved in her life, including antiques, dolls, teddy bears, and cranberry glass. Always up for a game of cards, a good story, and a great joke. Bev’s neighbors called her the matriarch of the block, the one to gather people together to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary, a holiday, or just life. Bev never missed sending a card for any occasion and she had an uncanny way of always making you feel loved and special.

She is survived by her beloved husband of 64 years, Franklin Hanson of Cape Coral; two loving children, Mark Hanson (Catherine) of La Plata, MD and Heidi Mason of Atlanta, GA; two grandchildren, David Hanson (Carley) and Amanda Hanson Matheny (Wes); as well as a great grandchild, Roman Hanson.

Beverly was preceded in death by her son in law, Tim Mason.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Details to be announced via
