She married Len March 28, 1951 and moved to Edmonton, AB and this couple had four children in 12 years. Hanna was a hard worker, not only as a mother but took in boarders, caring for many babies of single mom’s so the mothers could continue their education. Over the years she worked at Eatons department store, custodial/janitorial duties in hotels and care facilities, held various positions at Canex Placer mines, and was partner in Triangle Enterprizes. Hanna was very creative and skilled with all kinds of arts and crafts. She loved to sing and played various instruments by “ear”. Both her and her husband played music and sang in various gospel groups for the Seniors in Barrhead. She had a “green thumb” and could grow any type of household flower. Coming from a large family, Hanna had a special talent to ensure everything was “fair” and treated everyone equal. She always had a special gift of making Christmas special and memorable. Hanna and family had many adventures on various vacations and upon retirement her and Len went on many out of country trips, which she loved, especially to warm countries.
