Hannah was born July 9, 1935 in Refugio, Texas and entered into rest Oct. 7, 2017 in Minden. She was a member of Beech Springs Baptist Church where she sang in the choir and taught Sunday school. Hannah led a simple yet very fulfilling, positive life. She spent all of her time taking care of her husband of 62 years, her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. God, family, her church family and cooking were the most important things to her. She had a special touch and loved in a way that made every one she was around, feel like they were the most special person in the world. She leaves behind a legacy of what it truly meant to be a devoted wife, loving and supportive mother, gracious and caring grandmother and great grandmother.
