Vennie Waylon Hanna

August 20, 1945 ~ May 18, 2022 (age 76)


“Death comes like the birth of a baby, when it’s time, it’s time – birth, death, sleep healing; each comes in its own time – whatever comes, we can trust that we are in the hands of a God who loves us. So, that time came for Vennie Waylon Hanna, when he flew away with angels on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, at 11:03 AM, at McLeod Regional Medical Center, Florence.

Vennie was born on August 20, 1945, in Florence County, son of the late Walter Way Hanna and Thelma Coker Hanna. He was a member of Little Star Free Will Baptist Church.

Surviving are his sister, Patricia Simmons of Hemingway and brother, Billy Hanna of Scranton; nieces, Wendy (Al) Calcutt, Shelly (Bob) Kirby; nephews, Wyatt (Alice) Simmons, Terry (Melissa) Altman, Mark (Beckie) Altman, David (Linda) Altman and John Altman.
