Linda Anne Hanson (Nee Fletcher)Remarkable Lady
On 12th November 2016 peacefully in The Christie Hospital, Linda aged 69 years. The very much loved Mum of Michael Oliver, former wife of Michael Fred Hanson and lifelong friend until the end, loved daughter of the late Florence and Fred Fletcher, much loved sister of Susan, Stephen and the late Janine, dear sister in law of James (Jim) and loving auntie of James and Edward.
Linda was brought up on The Old Engine Farm in Altham and attended Accrington High School for Girls. She began her working life in sales and was intelligent, energetic and determined. When Linda married Michael, she became involved in the Hanson family business and later became Head of Sales at Hanson Trucks. She was very successful and dynamic in her position and went on to develop her own successful private medical business. She had natural skills and a great business acumen. She retired to Bodrum in Turkey to enjoy the sunshine. Linda had a big heart and was very loving and caring. She truly believed in the circle of care- that you couldn’t receive love and kindness without giving them back in full measure. She was popular and always beautifully presented. A lovely lady inside and out.
