Hannah is a born again Christian and Jesus is her joy, hope of salvation, friend, and Lord. To meet Hannah was to know someone who revealed God’s love, a person on who you could depend, and someone who would accept you as a close friend even if you just met!
Her pass times included a love for Christian music, dancing, traveling, along with spending time with friends and family. She spent hours enjoying word puzzles and her second home seemingly was Walmart buzzing along in an electric cart. The electric cart was her freedom in later life when mobility issues tried to slow her down! She enjoyed the beauty of God’s creation and she was as much of a social person as anyone you would ever meet. Her friendliness and love transcended normal boundaries and to meet her was to find a new friend.
Previous employment included the Smith Corona Typewriter Factory in New York, the Camdenton United Super bakery department, and as a missionary for New Tribes Mission.
Services will be held at a later date.
