Those she has left behind will miss her imagination and its ability to stretch into her own reality, her infamous turtle brownies and mini breads she brought everywhere, her strong love for animals and her bawdy twist on any subject at any given time.

She is at peace and will be missed by many.

She is survived by nieces and nephews; Troy (Sheila) Hannon, Todd (Kae) Hannon, Jane (Tim) Borntraeger, Holly (Ed) Veness, Michelle (Brian) Curry, Jason (Amanda) Colby, and Tanya Colby. She is also survived by other dear friends that she held close to her heart and considered family.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Alvin and Inez (Kempken) Hannon; siblings, Wayne (Jodi) Hannon, Sondra (Frank) Turcotte, and Sheila (John) Colby.


Memorial visitation will be from 3 to 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 1 at Integrity Celebrations Center, with a Celebration of Life Meal following at 5 p.m.
