"Can I look beyond myself and see the real self within? Why do I hide my true identity when I can expose it to The light for the world to see? My face needs to be seen - my true face. I need to find it and then shed my old skin to expose The spirit within. I feel bad because how I can do that is a mystery To me. I will try - but I shall also succeed."|
Hannah was a kind, gentle, loving spirit and a bright light to all those around her, especially so to her younger sisters. She was compassionate and caring to those in need and a counselor to those who struggled. She leaves a hole that can't be filled. We will miss her greatly.
Hannah is survived by her father, Andrew Barrett Albenesius of Aiken, SC, her mother, Laura Edl Albenesius of Charleston, SC, and sisters Laura Teague Albenesius, Clemson, SC and Grace Isabel Albenesius, Aiken, SC. She is also survived by her paternal grandparents Edward and Lucy Albenesius of Aiken, SC, maternal grandmother, Eva Edl of Aiken, SC, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins in Aiken and throughout other parts of SC and the US. She was predeceased by her paternal grandfather, John Edl, an uncle, Robert Albenesius and an aunt, Margaret Albenesius Bryant.
