Life Tribute – Hannah Irene Riedel

Hannah Irene Riedel

Surrounded by her loved ones, Hannah Irene Riedel passed from this life to the next June 13, 2021, just four days shy of her 24th birthday.

Born on June 17, 1997 to Aaron and Wendy Riedel, Hannah was placed in her parents’ loving arms and immediately began wrapping her family around her tiny fingers. She was a sweet happy child who endured her limitations and medical issues with courage and grace beyond her years. Hannah loved to play video games, ride her horse, and raise kittens. Being one of those rare people who could actually train her kitties to do tricks was just one of her many talents that could largely be attributed to a stubborn determination that was to be envied.

For the past five years Hannah could be found every morning working at the Susanville Pizza Factory. She loved working there and was so happy when she was able to return after the shutdown. Though Hannah was not much of a talker, she loved spending time with her loud and rowdy extended family, all of whom hold a special place in their hearts for that spunky diminutive girl.

Hannah also loved Jesus and had accepted him as her savior, and we know she has cast off all this life’s trouble and is enjoying her new life in his presence. She leaves a legacy of inspiration to never give up and to never let others define what you are or what you can or cannot do.

Hannah is survived by her parents, Aaron and Wendy Riedel, of Standish; her older brother, Brent Riedel; sister, Amanda Riedel; and younger brother, John Riedel. She is also survived by her grandmother, Irene Riedel, of Susanville, as well as, numerous aunts and uncles and a multitude of cousins.

Hannah was proceeded in death by her paternal grandfather, Tommy David Riedel; and maternal grandparents, William Harold Harkness and Sandra Ruth Harkness.  A Celebration of Life will be held at Standish Bible Church at 1 p.m. Saturday, July 17. The family requests that any memorial gifts may be sent to Standish Bible Church, P.O. Box 267, Standish, CA 96128.

Please note “Memorial Fund in memory of Hannah Riedel” with the contribution.
