Elmo Hansen Mordue

February 20, 1933 - April 8, 2015

The day long awaited by dad finally came - the day Hansen was reunited with his eternal companion, Marilyn. We miss him so much, but take great joy in knowing he has rejoined his family on the other side, including his daughter, Mary. Hansen passed away peacefully in his home in Bountiful, Utah, on April 8, 2015. He was born in Santa Monica, California on February 20, 1933, to Ruben Elmo and Winona Blanche Mordue. He spent a good portion of his life in Southern California. It was there he met Marilyn Murray and they were soon married in the St. George Temple in 1954. Hansen and Marilyn were blessed with 5 children, 13 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. He worked as a cement contractor and had a grasp of his trade unlike any other. With any job he worked, he was immediately made a site foreman, even as a teen. He had an incredibly strong work ethic and that was an example we have never forgotten. He was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and proud of his pioneer heritage. Hansen will be remembered for his quick smile and his deep love for his family. It is through him that his family knew true, unconditional love. He loved the Savior and always lived his life as a wonderful example to others.

He is survived by his children, Robert Mordue (Kimberlee), Wade Mordue (Melinda), Rebecca Auger (Keyth), Mindi Peckman (Dan) and his son-in-law, Jerry Wolfgang. He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Marilyn Mordue, and his oldest daughter, Mary Wolfgang.

Funeral services will be held on Monday, April 13, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. at the Bountiful East Stake Center, 650 East 2150 South, Bountiful, Utah. A viewing will be held preceding the service from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Interment will follow at the Bountiful City Cemetery located at 2224 South 200 West, Bountiful, Utah.
