Mrs. Hancock died at her home on Wednesday, just before noon.

She married Danny Hancock, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
She was a homemaker, artist, art teacher, along with many other titles... but, the most important role she played, was Mother to her children, and Grandmother to her grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
Wherever she lived, she was most involved in all activities of her church.
She was active in Believers' Baptist Church where she worked with the youth in the Awana program, and any place else she was needed.
She was the spiritual lifeline to all of her family.
