Hannah L. Mitchell

29 October , 19986 June , 2019

With deepest sorrow, we announce that Hannah Louise Mitchell (HeeHee), 20, passed away at Mass General Hospital, in the embrace of family and friends, on Thursday, June 6, following a long and courageous battle with Cystic Fibrosis. Hannah was born in Manchester, NH on October 29, 1998 the daughter of Dale (Jay) and Tamie (Lang) Mitchell, and was the best big sister to Hailey. The relationship Hannah had with her sister, was like no other, as she always had HaiHai's back and was there to mentor her in any way needed.

Hannah was a proud graduate of Manchester Memorial High School. She held a full-time job at PillPack, a part time job with the Puritan Backroom, and delivered food for Door Dash, all while signed up to start business classes at SNHU in July.

Hannah was an active and inquisitive young lady with the endless desire to explore the world. She kept her teachers and medical doctors on their toes and could often be seen explaining herself when found wandering the halls at school and during her hospital visits. Hannah was an altar server at St. Pius X Church for many years. She had also been a ballerina, a basketball, soccer, and field hockey star, a gifted violinist, a diehard Patriots, Bruins, and NE Revolution fan, but her favorite was playing softball with MGSL. Hannah loved camping and kayaking with her family, and attending Camp Bernadette. She had a passion for cars and off-roading. Hannah had the best sense of humor, most contagious laugh, loved to be silly, and the most stellar of all pranksters.

Hannah will be missed everyday by her parents and her sister, her Nana Phyllis May, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and co-workers who adored her, especially her girls who were more like sisters, Shennin, Brianna, and Cailee, and the love of her life, James. She also leaves her amazing medical staff at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, thank you for taking such great care of her. We know you did all that you could to keep Hannah with us.

Hannah is now with her Nana and Papa, Mary and Dale Mitchell and Grampy David Lang, laughing and singing “Africa”, off key, at the top of her beautiful lungs.

Hannah will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her. Hannah had the amazing ability to connect with everyone she met with her smile and her laugh. Despite her illness, she was always positive, and wanted to help whomever she could. When you think of Hannah, celebrate the good memories you have of her. Remember that life is fragile and short and should be lived to the fullest.

Breathe easy Hannah...

Dear Mitchell family,
Our deepest sympathy for your heartbreaking loss. Hannah was always that go to, happy to help you person. The brightest smile and additude, even when she wasn't feeling well. Always lending a helping hand to everyone who needed it. Hannah and Hailey were such great helpers during religious education classes for me. Hannah and her brilliant smile and inner light will be missed here on Earth. The Lord will be adding a special Angel to his kingdom. May her loved ones be assured of being reunited with her in the future. She will remain in our hearts until then.

I am a lifelong Manchester resident. But, more specifically, a longtime customer of the Backroom Restaurant. Hannah might have recognized me by face, but never knew me. But, I knew her from my frequent visits and observing her as one of the most efficient, energetic employees at the BR. And, always with a smile ! I recall being so impressed I stopped her to tell her how nice it was to see such a bright employee. She was flattered and thanked me for taking time to tell her that. I'm saddened to hear of Hannahs passing. I never had a clue she was sick. And, as the father of four grown children, all healthy, I'm struck by this news and terribly saddened. My sincerest condolences to Hannahs mom, dad and her sister.

I’ll never forget the first night that I met this beautiful soul. She didn’t know who I was but embraced me into her life as soon as we met. We clicked, as if we had known each other for years. 2016 was a rough year but Hannah made it seem like it would pass. She was there for me when my mom went back to prison and when Ma Tante Denise died. We got our rose tattoos done on the same day. If there’s one particular memory that comes to mind it has to be my 18th birthday. Hannah found out I had never had a surprise party. So while I was sleeping her and my sister decorated the whole house and woke me up by screaming happy birthday. Had balloons everywhere and had my whole house decorated to tell the world I was 18. (I still have the balloons believe it or not.) I’ll never forget waking up and feeling the love she embraced me with everyday we hung out. You’re a beautiful soul Hannah. The world deserved every breath you gave it. I love you Han Banan 🍌 and I’ll see you soon b.

I’ll always remember the times we would Snapchat non stop talking about random things! You were always willing to brighten my day whenever I was feeling down. The number one thing I’ll miss the most (even tho there is a ton) is the positivity you brought when we all knew you were fighting. I’ll miss you... forever. Rest easy 💛💛💛

I know why my son James fell so in love with you! You are a very sweet person Hannah! Always so positive, happy and thoughtful, always thinking of others well being before your own. You lit up any room you walked into with your smile and laughter. I will miss you and think of you daily. I will always cherish the fond memories of times we shared. Breathe easy Hannah. Heaven gained a beautiful angel.
Love always and forever, Mama C

I will always remember and love the times with you at softball. You always lifted up the team and brought in all your happy and wonderful energy. You always had a giant smile on your face no matter what was going on in the game. My favorite will always be hanging out with you after our softball games. Rest easy Hanna banana❤️❤️
