Hannelore loved the great outdoors, to work in her garden and always having her dogs around. For many years, Hannelore worked in different careers. Remembered as a business owner, she worked tirelessly to serve her customers. She would always say: “Do what’s right and do what’s good. Be kind and help others. The world can always use one more kind person.”
