A veteran of the Winter War, she served as a radio operator near the Russian border. She emigrated to Syracuse, New York with her husband Kyosti and her two daughters in 1954. The move to Seattle was made in 1961 when Kyosti became a professor at the University of Washington. Hanna was a woman of many talents and excelled at all that caught her interest. She enjoyed singing with the choir at the Finnish Lutheran Church for many years. She was preceded in death by her husband Kyosti by 23 years. She is survived by her daughters Leena Sturman and Anna-Mari Sarkanen, her son-in-law Mel Sturman and grandaughter Eila Moitoret.
