Louise Mackelprang Hanzon (96) passed away peacefully in her sleep on May 10, 2022 in Cedar City Utah. Louise was born to Melvin “Parry” and Naomi Mackelprang on July 30, 1925 in Cedar City. She grew up and attended public school in Cedar City, graduating from Cedar High in 1943. After graduation she boarded a bus to Salt Lake City where she attended nursing school at the University of Utah. As part of her nurses training she worked at Madigan General Army Hospital in Washington state. When her nurses training was complete she was slated to join the army, but World War II ended and her service in the military was no longer required, so upon obtaining her registered nurse certification she returned to Cedar City and worked at the local hospital. In July of 1948 she moved to Denver Colorado to marry Kenneth Ralph Hanzon, a friend from Cedar who was enrolled at the University of Denver. In 1953 they moved to Casper Wyoming for a couple of years before moving to Rangely Colorado in the summer of 1955. They lived in Rangely from 1955 to 1967. In 1967 they moved to Red Wash Utah, where they lived for about a year and a half before moving back to Rangely, where they remained until Ken’s retirement in 1983. After retirement they moved back to Cedar City where she lived for the remainder of her life. \nLouise loved dogs, walking, gardening (or “playing in the dirt” as Ken called it), and listening to music; but her greatest love was her family. When complemented that she had raised a good family she would often respond “Well, I don’t know that I raised them, they just sort of grew up”. \nLouise is survived by her four children, Craig (Castle Rock, Colorado), Boyd (Cedar City, Utah), Peggy \n(Rangely, Colorado), and Susy (Tehachapi, California), 13 grandchildren, and 24 great grandchildren. She was proceeded in death by her parents, her husband Kenneth, and her brother DParry Mackelprang. \nFuneral services will be held Thursday, May 19, 2022 at 12:00 noon at the Cedar City 9th Ward Chapel (256 South, 900 West) in Cedar City, Utah.
