Eleanor Margaret Jamieson Hanna, 94, of Cabot, passed peacefully into the arms of her Lord on April 4, 2019 at Oertel Personal Care at Concordia Lutheran Ministries, Cabot.
Born October 22, 1924 in Roslyn, PA, she was the daughter of William and Mary Jamieson.
Eleanor attended Temple University in Philadelphia where she received a Bachelor’s degree. She then went to Bryn Mawr College to graduate with her Masters of Social Work. She became a Deaconess at Mt. Airy Lutheran Seminary in Philadelphia.

While working as a Deaconess and serving in various health and welfare agencies, parishes, and schools around the country, she met her husband, Reverend Kamal Joseph Hanna. They were married on September 5, 1959.
Friends will remember her by her faithfulness to the church and community, her profound artistic and musical endeavors, and of course, her "punny" sense of humor.
