Mrs. Alma Styles Hanna was born on February 9, 1939 in Abbeville, Georgia to the late Mr. Jim and Mrs. Francena Styles. She was educated in the public schools of Abbeville. She later moved to Jacksonville, Florida in the late 1950s (early 1960s), where she began a career, which spanned over thirty years, in the field of health and public service with the Duval County Health Department (DCHD). After retiring from the DCHD, Mrs. Hanna continued her passion for giving back by working with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida for nearly 10 years.

In addition to her professional life of service, Mrs. Hanna (Alma) was a dedicated daughter, mother, grandmother, nana, cousin, and friend. There was no one whom she would not help and the word “stranger” was not in her vocabulary. All who encountered Mrs. Hanna (Alma) met a friend. Her kitchen, as well as her home, was always open. She was a champion of the downtrodden, encourager to the uninspired, and helper to the needy. The impact she made upon others is indescribable and uncountable.

Sis. Hanna was a dedicated and faithful member of the GBMBC. Her former duties at GBMBC were; she served as the Youth Counselor where she often had the youth at her house for various meetings and gatherings; she was a member of Usher Board No. 1; a member of District No. 1; Senior Women Missionary Society; where she held the position of Vice President from 2005 until her health failed and she was the Secretary of the Spiritual Choir. She was a member that loved her Pastor and church. You could often hear her encouraging her Pastor by saying, “sing Pastor”.

Sis. Hanna departed this life on Thursday, August 15, 2019. She was preceded in death by her mother, Francena Styles Hutchins; father, Jim Styles; stepfather, Clifford Hutchins; brothers, Willie J. Styles, and Frank Styles Sr.; and longtime friend, Mrs. Annabelle Hathcock.

Sis. Hanna leaves to cherish her memories: three sons, Sherman Styles (Joan) of Abbeville, Georgia, Richard S. Hanna (Annette) of Atlanta, Georgia, and Albert C. Hanna (Georgette) of Jacksonville, Florida; grandchildren, Herman D. Styles (Delia) of Houston, Texas, Pernell B. Styles of Englewood, New Jersey, Percival B. Styles of Abbeville, Georgia, Jamar Hanna of Jacksonville, Florida, Latasha N. Baker of Jacksonville, Florida, Amber O’Kelly (Anson) of Atlanta, Georgia, Xavier C. Styles, Abbeville, Georgia and Aierress C. Hanna of Jacksonville, Florida; a great great-granddaughter, Taliyah Z. Southern of Abbeville, Georgia; uncles, Mr. Connie Dwight (Geraldine) of Abbeville, Georgia and Mr. Moses Dwight (Frances) of Atlanta, Georgia; nieces and nephews, Ella Swain (Eugene) of McDonough, Georgia, Robin Colvin (Louis) of Jacksonville, Florida, Frank Styles (Sheral) of Fayetteville, Georgia, Freddie Styles (Clarissa) of Columbus, Georgia; brother-in-law, Mr. William Hanna of Atlanta, Georgia; sister-in-law, Mrs. Carrie Styles of Atlanta, Georgia; special friends, Mrs. Edna Corey of Jacksonville, Florida, and Mrs. Harriet Hayes of Jacksonville, Florida; her devoted cousins, Mr. Will and Mrs. Fannie Baker of Jacksonville, Florida; a devoted cousin/daughter, Mrs. Felicia Baker-Davis (Michael) of Chesapeake, Virginia; godchildren, Jada Chinn of Jacksonville, Florida, Tanya McBride of Jacksonville, Florida, Queenie Dregreaffread of Jacksonville, Florida, LaKeisha Brisbane of Jacksonville, Florida, Oliver R. Saunders of Washington, D.C., and Andre Washington of Jacksonville, Florida; Nana’s Boy, Evan O’Neal Davis of Chesapeake, Virginia; and a host of great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends.

My prayers are with all who knew and loved the late Alma, Sister as she was affectionately called. You will miss her presence, but keep all memories close in your heart. There will be a time when you will see her once again. (Acts 24:15:John 5:28,29, Revelation 21:4) May you find comfort, peace and endurance during this time of trial

My Dearest and Beloved Sister Alma, I am heartbroken/so sorry you are no longer here with us, but I know that you are still here with us in spirit. Here's hoping your family/loved ones are comforted by these words: A GOOD woman never dies; they will see you many times. They will feel you in all things that are here out of love, and for love. The person of you may leave or be taken away, but the best part of your GOODNESS stays. It stays FOREVER! Dear Family, take care of each other and stay strong for each other. May God Bless You and Us All. I send my eternal love. Barbara Jackson Styles King
