Vickie Hanson, of Frost, Minnesota unexpectedly departed this life on May 25, 2013 at St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester due to a brain aneurysm. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 am on Thursday, May 30 at Trinity Lutheran Church, Blue Earth, Minnesota. Visitation will be Wednesday from 4:00-8:00 p.m. at Patton Funeral Home in Blue Earth, MN and one hour prior to services at the church. Vickie Lynne was born on August, 31, 1958, in Winnebago, to Harold Jr. and Betty Ann (Heinrich) Ogburn. Actively involved with Bar-Cott 4-H Club and Trinity youth group, Vickie graduated from Blue Earth High School in 1976. She attended Gustavus Adolphus College where she earned a bachelor's of science in nursing. Vickie married Robert "Bob" Hanson on August 23, 1980, and they lived and farmed in the Frost area. Children, Janie and Brice, joined the family, and Vickie was an active supporter of their academic, athletic, and artistic activities. She enjoyed sewing and design, and co-founded Heartland Embroidery with Sue Oswald. In the following years, Vickie had few "traditional jobs" but she was always busy with family, friends and community, including 10 years on the Blue Earth Area School Board. A constant source of energy and encouragement for others, Vickie was at her best when lending a helping hand. A final testament to Vickie's love for others was the gift of numerous organs through LifeSource organ donation. Vickie is survived by her husband, Robert of Frost, daughter, Janie of New York City, NY, son, Brice of Blue Earth, sister, Judy (Dave) Jerde of White Bear Lake, MN, brother Walt (Lynn) Ogburn of Stillwater, MN, parents, Betty Ann and Harold Ogburn of Winnebago, MN and many nieces and nephews. Expressions of sympathy are preferred in the form of donations in Vickie's name to the Blue Earth Area School Foundation. Web tributes may be left at www.pattonfh.com
