Mildred Stumpf Brooks Hanson

January 13, 1928 — June 8, 2024


Mildred Stumpf Brooks Hanson, age 96 of Broadway, NC, passed away peacefully at her home on Saturday, June 8, 2024.

She was born on January 13, 1928 in Baltimore, Maryland to Frederick Howard Stumpf and Dora Pfieffer Stumpf. She was preceded in death by her parents, along with her husband David Shelby Hanson and her step-son, David G. Hanson. Also, her sisters, Gloria Gibson and Janet Matthews.

Mildred was married to David on February 17, 1969, and they enjoyed 37 wonderful years together. They loved to spend time together and with friends golfing. Mildred and Dave resided in Ellicott City, Maryland, Sanford, North Carolina, Sun City, Arizona, and New Braunfels, Texas before retiring in Broadway, North Carolina in 1997.

Mildred was a graduate of Seton High School, and attended the Business Training Institute of Baltimore, Maryland. She was employed by the National Security Agency (NSA) under the authority of the United States Department of Defense in Washington, D.C. during World War II. As a member of the Sanford Quilters Guild, she was an avid quilter and she entered and won many ribbons through the years, including first prize for a wall quilt. She always looked forward to supporting and attending the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Annual Program and was a philanthropist to many charities.

Mildred is survived by her nieces and nephews including: Gregory Matthews (Laura), Linda Matthews, Chris Matthews (Mary) and Connie Skledar (Gregg), along with several great nieces and nephews and her cousins, Kathy Johnson and Susan P. Wetzel.

Mildred cherished family visits and always had a smile on her face. The care and love which she received in her final years by her many special caregiver friends kept her in good health and spirits and provided her with many enjoyable days. We will all miss her greatly.

A memorial service will be held within a few weeks. Final resting place will be in Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery, San Antonio, Texas. Rodgers and Pickard Funeral Home of Sanford assisted with the arrangements.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate your prayers and any memorial contributions to be made in honor of “Mildred Ruth Hanson” to Liberty HomeCare & Hospice Services, 1005 Carthage Street, Sanford, NC 27331; or a charity of your choice.
