Marjorie Hanson

Marjorie “Margie” Jean (Brenteson) Hanson, 83, died early Wednesday morning, Oct. 25, 2023, at Billings Clinic.

She was born in Plentywood on March 10, 1940, to parents Clifford “Buster” and Erma (Boe) Brenteson. Growing up on the farm near Coalridge, she quickly developed the strength, optimism and confident, can-do spirit that characterized her throughout her life. She was a natural leader whose energy and generosity spilled over to those around her.

Growing up on the farm as the middle child of three (older sister Edith and younger sister Carol), she spent many days following her dad around learning how to “figure things out.” The Brenteson girls were inseparable, playing on the farm together, sleeping in the same small bed and attending dances in Westby.

That’s where Margie met her lifelong partner, Ogden “Oggie” Hanson. She graduated from Plentywood High School in the spring of 1958 and was married shortly afterward on June 5 to Oggie who was serving in the U.S. Army at the time.

She and her new husband relocated to Indiana while he completed his training with the finance corps before deploying to Germany. She followed him in the winter of 1958, arriving in Germany on Christmas Eve 1958. The two spent the next 24 months living in Germany and traveling throughout western Europe before returning stateside in 1960, moving to Great Falls.

They started their family in 1963. John was first, then James in 1965, Jadee and Jeffrey in 1970 and finally Jason in 1973.
