Elaine Hansen Hale was born Aug. 31, 1933 in Morgan, UT to Lionel and
Vadna Hansen. Her parents later moved to Tooele where she spent her
childhood and graduated from Tooele High School. She was sealed in the Salt
Lake City Temple to her eternal sweetheart Fred Hale, on June 29, 1950.
She was employed at Tooele Army Depot for many years as a secretary
and following that she kept the books for the family business. Elaine was a
fierce competitor and loved to bowl. Together she and Dad bowled on a league
and later she was on a ladies league with several of her friends. Most recently
she became a champion at Bingo and Skip Bo while at Diamond Jane’s.
She was an excellent cook and loved having family dinners. Our annual
Christmas dinner was a highlight our family looked forward to each year.
Crocheting was a hobby she enjoyed and each one of her seven grandchildren
have an Afghan she made for them. Elaine loved music. Saturday morning’s
our home was filled with the sound of mom’s angelic voice singing as she
cleaned and cooked.
Elaine was as sweet and patient as they come. Her tender loving touch
had the ability to calm the craziness in life. She was always happy and positive
even during the most difficult times. She was a member of the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her callings included Sunday school teacher,
Primary chorister, Relief Society President and visiting teacher. Her most
beloved calling was that of a wife, mother and grandmother. Our lives have
been molded and shaped by her gentle and kind disposition. We are so thankful
to our Father in Heaven for sending us to her.
She was proceeded in death by her husband, parents, brothers, Lavon
and Dale Hansen, and her grandson Shamas Hale. Her survivors include her
sister Sandra McCluskey, sons Craig (Sherrie), Kenneth (Jennie), her seven
grandchildren and fifteen great grandchildren.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to Michelle and her staff at Diamond Jane’s for
their tender loving care.
Private family graveside services will be held in the Grantsville City Cemetery in the care of
Dalton-Hoopes Funeral Home. 435-884-3031
