Verda Seely Fraley

GREEN RIVER-Verda Seely Fraley, age 92, passed away June 1, 2006 in Ferron. She was born Jan. 3, 1914 in Sunnyside, Utah to George Willard and Olive Pursy Dickman Seely. She married LaMarr Hansen and had three children.

Verda was a remarkable homemaker and could make anything with her hands (cooking, quilting, knitting, crocheting, canning, gardening). Her motto was that old pioneer saying, “Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.” In addition to all this, she became a beautician and was one of the first in Utah to be licensed to do acrylic nails and individual false eyelashes. She was also an avid deer hunter and fisherman. In 1981 she went through the temple and received her endowments.

She is survived by her children and their spouses: Richard and Beatrice Hansen of West Valley City, Edward and Norma Jean Hansen of Green River, Kay Jones of Teasdale, and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren; and sisters, Louise Sherrill, Allene Spadafora, LaRue Hunt and Olive Anderson, all of Green River. Preceded in death by grandson, Thad Hansen, brother Don Seely, and sister Libby Harper.

Funeral services will be held Tues. June 6, 2006 at noon in the Green River Ward chapel where friends may call from 10:30-11:30 a.m., prior to services. Burial will be in the Elgin Cemetery under the direction of Fausett Mortuary.
