Ms. Sylvia Hanna was born March 28, 1938 in Williamsburg County, South Carolina. She was the daughter of the late Clarence and Mary Hanna. She departed this life on July 21, 2017 at the Bethany Unit of the Lowman Home in White Rock, South Carolina.

In her early years, Sylvia joined Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church in Brooklyn, New York. In her mid-life, she was licensed to minister the word of God at Beulah Holiness Church in Hemingway, South Carolina. Her senior years were spent as a watch care member of Young’s Chapel A.M.E. Church.

“Bishop”, as she was affectionately called by her family and friends, enjoyed walking, socializing with her community, reading her Bible and making others smile. Her love for Jesus Christ was shared with everyone she met.

In addition to her parents, Sylvia was also predeceased by her sisters, Edna Powell and Julia Flegler; her brother, Charles L. Brown; a nephew, Theodore Powell; and a niece, Rosie Powell.

Sylvia leaves to cherish precious memories and celebrate her life: her loving son, Earl L. (Charlene) Hanna; her grandson, Seth D. (Jordynne) Hanna; and two sisters, Clara Harrison of Orangeburg, South Carolina and Rosa Lee Cooper of Charlotte, North Carolina. She also leaves to mourn her passing: a niece, Lorraine Harrison; nephews: Anthony and Gregory Harrison, Tony and Reggie Cooper, and Kevin and Kurt Flegler; and a host of grandnieces and nephews, cousins and sorrowing friends.
