Hannah was a lifetime member of Life in Christ Center. She always had an open door to anyone who came, especially her grandkids, leaving her fridge and freezer stocked so they could come join her on their lunch breaks. She enjoyed spending time with family, going on vacations with them and sometimes taking the grandkids on special trips. Reading, raising flowers and telling stories of her childhood were some of her favorite pastimes. She always saw the good in every situation and kept a good sense of humor and her feistiness right to the end. She was loved by everyone who knew her, and we are better for knowing her. She will be dearly missed by many.
