Obituary for Julee Ann Hansen

Julee Ann (Iverson) Hansen died suddenly from complications due to pneumonia and resulting acute respiratory distress on February 8, 2018. Her passing was peaceful. Her beloved husband, daughters, and son-in law were with her as she passed.

Julee was born to Leonor and Wallace Iverson on March 20, 1950 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She graduated from Olympus High School in 1968. Later in life, she attended the University of Utah, majoring in Anthropology.

She married the love of her life, Kenneth Hansen, on May 2, 1969. Together they had two adored daughters Kristin Lee (Hansen) Scott on October 5, 1970, and Kari Lynn (Hansen) Hewitt on July 6, 1974.

Julee worked a number of jobs including working as a tour guide at Pioneer Trial State Park, and as a patient counselor at a local diet and nutrition clinic.

She had a love for history and science, especially in the fields of Anthropology, Archeology, and Paleontology. She was an expert in local Utah Native America cultures and history.

This passion for history led her to become a volunteer with the Utah Museum of Natural History. There, she worked in the anthropology collections department and as a museum tour guide.

She was an associate member of the Crow Canyon Southwestern Archeology Center, served on the Board of Directors for the Utah Heritage Foundation, and was the First President of the Wheeler Historical Farm Guild. After completing many hours of engaging and exciting course work, she received her certification as an Apprentice Archeologist with the Castle Valley Chapter of the Utah Friends of Paleontology Organization.

She is preceded in death by her parents Wallace and Leonor (Wagenaar) Iverson, brother Brad Iverson, son-in-law Richard Scott, and step-grandson Justin Scott.

She is survived by her loving husband, Kenneth Hansen, daughters Kristin Scott and Kari Hewitt, son-in-law Darrell Hewitt, and step-granddaughter Madison Scott.

She will be missed and remembered for her beautiful smile, her amazing singing voice, and the deep love and commitment she had for her family.
