-- Hanna K. Still 1925-2012
Last Sunday, I listened to people share stories about the many ways Hanna Still had influenced their lives and our community. It was a heartfelt experience for me and hundreds of others in the church who were blessed to know this extraordinary woman.
When I was working for Wellsprings Friends School, I enjoyed some long conversations with Hanna at her home as well as brief talks during her many visits to the school and at Board meetings I attended. The times I went to her home to talk privately were especially meaningful to me. When I was with her, I felt touched by her soulful presence and her beautiful spirit. She always listened intensely to what I had to say and spoke her views with deep conviction.
I'm grateful for the time I was able to be with Hanna and for all the wisdom she shared with me. May I carry my memories of her and her rich life legacy with me for the rest of my days.
