She was born in Greene County on Aug. 23, 1922, to William Andrew and Louisa Lehann Bible.
In 1925, at the age of 2, she moved to Bradley County with her family and settled in the Flint Springs farming community, where she spent the entirety of her life.
She was a member of the Flint Springs Cumberland Presbyterian Church, where she served as Sunday school teacher and Vacation Bible School teacher.
A masterful gardener, her flower gardens were for many years a traffic stopper on Dalton Pike. Gardens throughout Bradley County and the surrounding area today boast many beautiful things that she graciously shared with friends, family and strangers alike. She was especially fond of irises and daylilies.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 61 years, William Sloan Hannah; brothers: Paul Renner, Marvin Renner, Archie Renner and Oscar Renner; sisters: Clara Bennett, Dorothy McCoy, Sue Ada Clabo and Willie Ruth May; and great-grandson, Gabriel Stewart.
Survivors include her children: Janice Parker and her husband, Gary, and Hugh Hannah and wife, Pam; five grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; and one sister, Amy Dean Pinkard, all of Cleveland; and many nieces and nephews.
The funeral will be held at 4 p.m. today, June 29, 2014, in the chapel of Grissom-Serenity Funeral Home.
Interment will follow in Flint Springs Cemetery with her grandsons: Ashley Senters and Andy Senters; great-grandsons: Jordan Belcher, Landon Senters and Brent Senters; and great-grandson-in-law, Ryan Boling serving as pallbearers.
The family will receive friends from 2 to 4 p.m. today at the funeral home.
The family requests that, in lieu of flowers, memorials be made to the Flint Springs Church, 517 Mitchell Road, S.E, Cleveland, TN 37323.
