Martha Neese still recalls how she and her husband, Gene, used to pack their suitcases with meat when they flew from Iowa to their second home in Ahwatukee.
That was before the airlines-imposed weight limits on luggage, but it didn’t matter. They had a more efficient idea: Bring the meat store with them.
Fourteen years later, their Von Hanson’s Meats shop in Chandler has become a go-to destination for carnivores throughout the East Valley and beyond, as well as a processing center for hunters who plan to eat their catch.
Between the store and her community involvement – not to mention the occasional legal case she might still pick up – Neese shows no sign of slowing down on any front.
“I don’t keep track of me hours; you can’t look at it that way,” she said. “I get up early in the morning and I am busy.”
“I like helping people. I was a nurse and always have been very caring to my clients as a lawyer. I want to help people. That’s the community involvement part of it.”
