Much-loved Husband, Father, Grandfather, and Great-Grandfather
Norman Wainley Hannah, a Veteran of World War II, passed away peacefully at the age of 85 from his home in Chilliwack on April 29, 2008.
Predeceased by his beloved wife, Margaret (Peggy), the mother of his four children.
Norman was the last surviving child of Frank and Edna Hannah of Leroy, Saskatchewan. He was the second youngest of six siblings: George, Frank, Keith, Nellie Malpas, and Bernice Carruthers.
As an exceptional bus driver with Pacific Stage Lines, Norman was awarded for 35 years of safe driving. After retirement, he enjoyed many special times with his family and numerous motorhome trips with his wife to Palm Springs, California.
Norman is lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his wife, Sadie; son, Steven Hannah (Marlene) of Langley; daughter, Beth Nabe (Lloyd) of Lake Chapala, Mexico; daughter, Susan Hannah of Chilliwack; and daughter, Maureen Daase (Herbert) of Chilliwack. He is dearly missed by his nine grandchildren: Jason Nabe (Lisa) of Ottawa; Joel Nabe (Heather) of Austin, Texas; Tara Hannah of Chilliwack; Erin Hannah of Vancouver; Steven Hannah (Beverly) of Burnaby; David Hannah of Langley; Kimberley Hannah of Langley; Melissa Kelly (David) of Atkinson, North Carolina; and Nathan Daase of Chilliwack; as well as by his two great-grandchildren: Olivia Nabe of Ottawa; and, soon to be born, “baby boy” Nabe of Austin, Texas. He is also deeply missed by his many friends and extended family.
The family extends a special thank you to Dr. S. Markey for the tender care provided our father.
A Memorial Service is planned for July to enable all family members to be in attendance.

We thank our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, for His great love and faithfulness.
