Brockbank Loves Grandma Marie Hansen

We would like to honor a very special lady that was part of our Brockbank family for over 23 years. Marie Hansen was a foster grandma in Mrs. Marcy Noorda's first-grade class and before that was in first grade with Mrs. Elaine Burnham. Marie was a remarkable lady, at 94 years old. She enjoyed crocheting, tying quilts, and collecting nutcrackers (which she loved showing off) she had 326 nutcrackers.  At school Grandma Hansen listened to students read, count, do arithmetic and helped them with  their classroom centers. Marie was honored in the Deseret News in July of 2016. She was the oldest and longest-serving volunteer with the Utah County Foster Grandparent Program. Marie loved kids having raised 5 of her own, she had 19 grandchildren, 48 great grandchildren with one on the way, 8 step great grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren. Marie was very dedicated and loved working with all the first graders throughout her years at Brockbank. We are going to miss her very much!
