Gloria Jeanne Hancock Obituary
Gloria Jeanne Hancock

On August 19, 2014, Gloria Jeanne Hancock (83) passed peacefully into the arms of her heavenly Father. Jeanne was born June 3, 1931, in Atlanta, Georgia. In June of 2014, she celebrated 60 years with her husband Kenneth Dal Hancock in Tallahassee, Florida. Her life has been defined by her faith, her family and her friends.

Jeanne was preceded in death by both parents, OraBelle Hasty Cook and Verney Clifton Cook, as well as her step-mother Doris Cook and her son-in-law Wesley Harmon. She is survived by her husband, their three children Tara Harmon, Brook Miller (Paul), and Eric Hancock, their three grandchildren Carliayn Kell (Jason), Morgan and Bryce Miller, their first great-grandson Bennett Miller due in October, her beloved sister Verney Gwytha Telotta (Bobby), her surrogate daughter Denise Brousseau, as well as numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and their descendents.

Jeanne loved her Lord, family, church, and friends deeply. She enjoyed music, history, poetry, reading, watercolor painting, Bible study and all forms of learning. She was known for her way with words, her enthusiastic theatricality and for bringing joy to everyone that knew her. She has left a powerful legacy for her many friends and family members.

Jeanne's family is thankful for the wonderful people from Big Bend Hospice, Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, TMH Rehab, and Fellowship Presbyterian church for their wonderful care and support over the course of Jeanne's struggle with lymphoma. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in memoriam to Big Bend Hospice or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. A celebration of life will be held at 1:00 pm on Sunday, September 7, 2014, at Fellowship Presbyterian Church. Expressions of sympathy may be sent to Fellowship Presbyterian Church.
