The family would like to extend our thanks to the staff of Clarenville, Bonavista and Corner Brook Long Term Care homes in which Hannah resided in her later years. In Hannah’s words, “I love my little hometown but at this period of my life, I need to be in a place like this. So much help here.”
In her own words from a journal she kept, Hannah writes, “Thank God for His blessings. I have a had a good life in my little hometown of Francois. I tell people it’s the most beautiful outport on the south coast. I had a happy life.” In a poem she wrote to the love of her life after he had passed, she says “We had a wonderful life together, didn’t we? With our 5 sons all handsome like you. We created a wonderful family, didn’t we? That’s what all the love we shared could do.”
