She liked meeting interesting people and travelled extensively as late as her ninetieth year. Hannah was predeceased by her sister Ruth and brother Eli. She is survived by her sons Michael (Donna Doyle) residing in Bay Roberts and John (the late Peggy Spencer) residing in Burnaby, BC. She will be missed by the Stewarts (her Ontario family) and by the Groves families in the UK.
