Elaine K. Hanson, 79, of Flint, Mich., died Saturday, June 27, 2020, at Fostrian Court Assisted Living in Flushing, Mich., of natural causes.

She was born Dec. 14, 1940, the daughter of Albert Christian Frederick and Mildred Maxine (Pardee) Fisher of Garnavillo. Elaine graduated from Garnavillo High School in 1958, and from Iowa State University in 1962 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education.

On June 10, 1962, Elaine was united in marriage with Edward Kenneth Hanson in Garnavillo. Shortly after, they moved to Flint, Mich., where Elaine worked for the Flint School System as a teacher and later as a substitute teacher. With the birth of the couple’s first child, Elaine became a stay-at-home mother, whose days were filled with volunteer work for The Carman-Ainsworth School District.
