Obituary for LaVance Hanson

LaVance Hanson
LaVance Hanson, 65, of Bloomington, Indiana passed away at her home on Saturday, August 5th, 2017. She was born on September 16, 1951 to Vance A. and Martha E. Young. She graduated from Bloomington High School in 1969. LaVance brought smiles and laughter, gave a motherly scolding, and had a caring heart that she shared with thousands of Bloomington High School North students during her 29 years of employment.
LaVance was a true and loyal friend to many. Her laughter and easy spirit will be greatly missed. She loved with all her heart and when she hurt, she hurt with all her heart. LaVance was as unique as her name and her memory will continue on.

LaVance was a loving wife for 46 years to her husband Ronald W. Hanson. Together they had three children Jennifer Hanson of Little Rock, Arkansas; Melissa (Mark) Haley of Lemoore, California; and Ronald (Tiffany) Hanson of Fort Benning, Georgia. LaVance and Ron also shared the joy of having three grandchildren, Mason Haley, Tessa King, and Everett Hanson.
LaVance is survived by one brother, Ted Mishler of Albany, Kentucky; two sisters, Connie (Henry) Grubb and Loretta (Tom) Crecelius. LaVance also leaves behind several nieces and nephews.

Preceded in death by her parents and two brothers, Kenneth Young and Randolph Young.

LaVance’s family will receive friends on Sunday, August 13, 2017 from 2:00 - 6:00 pm at The Funeral Chapel of Powell and Deckard at 3000 East 3rd Street, Bloomington, Indiana and on Monday from 10:00 am until service time.

Funeral services for LaVance will be at 11:00 am on Monday, August 14, 2017 at The Funeral Chapel. Pastor David Norris will officiate the service and burial will follow at Valhalla Memorial Gardens.
