|Birth: ||Mar. 16, 1906|
|Death: ||Jan. 24, 2013|
One and a half months short of her 107th birthday, still feisty, healthy and strong, Ellen Ramona Hanks Anderson left this earth to join her husband William Bevan Anderson. They had been apart nearly 23 years.
Ellen was born to Alfred L. and Mary Alice Tate Hanks. Her mother died when she was 12 years old and her father later married Mary Alice's sister, Leuella Tate, who continued to raise her.
Ellen graduated from Utah State Agricultural College, now Utah State University, in 1929 and later taught Home Economics in Hurricane, Utah. Ellen married William Bevan Anderson June 16, 1932. She returned to Tooele where they lived until 1988.
Because of Bevan's health, Bevan and Ellen moved to Provo to live with their only daughter, Alice, her husband Bob and their family. We have had the joy and pleasure of having G.G. (Grandma Great) with us for the last 24 years. She had a special relationship with each of her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was sharp as a tack and had a very keen and alert memory. Up until a month before she passed, G.G. was traveling back and forth to Bear Lake.
She is survived by her daughter, Alice Marie Spencer, 10 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren.
The family would like to thank Daylene Wright and Ginselvi Campos from Envision Home and Hospice Care as well as the many other staff members for their tender and loving care in her final months.
Funeral services will be held on Thursday, Jan. 31 at 10:30 a.m. at the Grandview South Stake Center, 1122 N Grand Avenue, Provo, UT. A viewing will be held prior to the funeral from 9:00 to 10:15. Interment in the Tooele City Cemetery, 361 S. 100 E. Tooele, UT.
