Obituary of Floriana Hanna

Please share a memory of Floriana to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Floriana Hanna, was an angel here on Earth but on Wednesday, December 1, 2021, she gained her Heavenly wings. After a yearlong battle with lung cancer, she succumbed to a complication of the disease, at the age of 66. Floriana was born February 4, 1955, to Glen and Finevia Morris in Great Lakes, Illinois. With her father being in the Navy, they traveled all-over the United States before settling down in Upland, California, where she graduated from Upland High in 1973. On, July 27, 1974, she married Raymond Clyde Hanna, Jr. In 1984, they decided to settle down in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, to raise together their son, Christopher, and daughters, Shanta’ and Raelene. Her true pride and joy came shining through in 1985 when her dreams came true by opening Guiding Light Christian Educational Center, which is still a thriving part of Lake Havasu today. Her lasting love, compassion, and commitment will be her forever legacy, not only in the childcare field but in dog rescue as well. She captured the hearts of all who knew her and even those she never had the chance of meeting in person. She was so much more than just a person; she was the utter meaning of having a heart of gold! Floriana had a way of lighting up any room with her soft smile and gentle heart. She had a remarkable ability of making people feel loved, heard, and comfortable without even trying. All creatures big and small loved her, and she loved the world as well. She wasn’t just our mom, grandma, sister, aunt, mentor, or friend; she was everyone's. Floriana was a pillar in our life, our family, and our community. She was thoroughly beautiful inside and out, and we now know that every time we see a magnificent sunset or a beautiful rainbow, that is her love still radiating around us! After only one year, Floriana is reunited with the love of her life, Raymond Clyde Hanna Jr., to be together for the rest of eternity. She is also preceded in death by her parents, Glen and Finevia Morris, and grandparents, Giovanni and Lidia DiCenso. She leaves behind her children, Chris Hanna (Megan LaPlaca), Shanta’ Abbott (Jeremy Abbott), and Raelene Hanna (Daniel Nix); her six beautiful grandchildren, Brentyn and Deserae Hanna, Emma and Averie Abbott, and Caydence and Morgan Nix; her siblings, Adriana Morris, Juliana Mark, Dan Morris, John Morris, and so many family and friends too numerous to list but not forgotten. All that knew her know that these words are not enough to even begin to express how much she meant or how great of a loss we have endured. Although, we are now left with the love we hold dear to our hearts and our own thoughts and memories of this amazing person. A funeral service will be held on Saturday, January 15, 2022, at Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home at 3:00pm. Immediately following, we will be celebrating Floriana’s life from 4:30-9:00pm at the London Bridge Resort in the Convention Center.
