September 8, 1933 - September 27, 2019
Doris Floyd Hanna was born September 8, 1933 in Pitt County, North Carolina to the late John Floyd and Olivia Ann Copper Floyd. She was the youngest of eleven children (King Solomon, Willie, Johnny, Gentry, Joe, Priscilla, Mozella, Nina, Esther Mae, and Lillie). She attended Pitt County High School before relocating to Brooklyn, New York where she married Cornelius Hanna. She was employed at Kingsboro Psychiatric Center as a nurse's aide where she worked for over fifteen years. At an early age she gave her life to the Lord and became a faithful member of Sweet Hope Ministries Church. Upon relocating to Brooklyn NY, Doris showed her love and commitment to the Lord by becoming a dedicated active member of King Emanuel Missionary Baptist Church (formerly New Hope Baptist Church). She was an active member of the senior choir and could frequently be heard singing hymns. As a dedicated member of the Roses of Sharing Ministry, she assisted others during their time of need. She remained a member of King Emanuel Missionary Baptist Church until being called home to the Lord on September 27, 2019 at the age of 86. Doris will be admired and remembered as a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and loyal friend. Her kind, gentle spirit paired with her warm smile and infectious laugh made everyone comfortable in her presence. Doris was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need but be assured, Doris Floyd Hanna “did not take no mess” and would quickly provide correction when needed. If her words did not get to you, a swift tap of her cane surely would “get you right.” (Just ask her grandson, Brandon.) Doris was truly one of God’s angels spreading the word of the Lord to everyone she met. Her strong faith allowed her to believe that there was nothing too great that “HER” God couldn’t do. She loved God first and her family second and it showed in her everyday actions. Doris leaves to cherish her loving memories daughters, Deborah "Fruity" Bacon and Nancy "The Baby" Floyd; grandson, Brandon "Snookie" Bacon (LaToya); great-granddaughter, Olivia Grace Bacon; and the entire Copper, Taft, Floyd family.
