Obituary

Susan Kay Hanson, age 64, passed away September 20, 2020, as the result of a motor vehicle accident.
She was born September 28, 1955 in Sioux Falls, SD, to Herbert and Evelyn (Hartmann) Ranschau. She graduated from West Central High School in 1973, then went on to serve in the SD Air National Guard from 1974 until 1980. Then in 1975, she married Donald Ordal and to this marriage five children were born. She then married Randy Hanson in 1989. Together they made their home in the Black Hills, where she worked at Black Hills Special Services in Sturgis for 32 years.
Together they enjoyed hunting, fishing, horseback riding, and teaching country western dancing. In their later years, they built a campground called Suzie's Campground, where she embraced the phrase "Come as Strangers, Leave as Friends", and where many of her campers became good friends.
Grateful for having shared her life are her husband, Randy Hanson of Sturgis; her five children, Michael Ordal of Colton, SD, Tabitha (Pat) Stofferahn of Humboldt, SD, Peggy (Adam) Lauck of Salem, SD, Adam (Amber) Ordal of Parker, CO, and Patrick Ordal of Humboldt, SD; her mother, Evelyn Carlson of Rapid City, SD; her brothers, Dennis (Deborah) Ranschau of Bancroft, SD, and Dean Ranschau of Rapid City, SD; sister, Bonnie Christensen of Rapid City, SD; mother-in-law, LaVera Hanson of Sturgis, SD; brother-in-law, Rodney (Kelly) Hanson of Lead, SD; sister-in-law, Karla Atkins of Lead, SD; her grandchildren, Breanna and Emillee Stofferahn, Addisyn and Bradyn Lauck, and Shelby and Grayson Ordal; and a host of other family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her father, Herbert Ranschau; her stepfather, Wayne Carlson; her brother, Gary Ranschau; her sister-in-law, Laurie Ranschau; and her father-in-law, Roger Hanson.
