Hannah SUKKAN

Hannah was born in Kiostita, Bessarabia, Romania on October 23, 1921. She passed away on June 19, 2009 peacefully at Eden Care.

The third child of eight children to Alfred and Emilie Mammel (nee: Dietterle).

She immigrated to Canada with her family in 1929. The family farmed in Richdale (Hanna) Alberta area during the “hungry 30’s” and due to crop failures they moved to the Lovoy area in 1933. In 1937 the family moved to Chilliwack, BC.

That is where she met her husband Harry Sukkan. They got married on August 23, 1942. They had two children (twins), Ken Sukkan and Carol Saunders. They had five children and three grandchildren.

She will be sadly missed by all of us.
