Hnora had a deep love for her great nieces and nephew too.
Hnora never met a person that she didn’t consider a friend. Everywhere she went, Hnora found someone to talk to. Hnora was active in the recovery community. Hnora has mentored many friends in the community over the years. Many of these friends we still call family to this day.
Hnora can now rest easy in the arms of our Lord, Jesus Christ. She was a dedicated follower of his word. If it’s a Sunday at 5pm, she will find a mass to attend. If she couldn’t make it, she’d make sure to send her daughters in her place. Hnora dedicated her time to children as well with her time as a Catechism teacher.
