Hannah B. Brady

Our beloved mother, friend, aunt, sister, “baboo” and great “baboo”, Hannah Beth Brady, passed away Friday, March 26, 2021 after a hard fought battle with cancer.  She is survived by her older sister, Olive Miller, her niece Joyce, and nephews Bruce and Brian.   She was preceded in death by her parents, Charles E and Josie Fisher as well as sister, Aileen, and brother Charles Dale – it was the loss of Aileen that motivated Hannah to become a nurse.

Hannah was born and grew up in Marceline, Mo.  She graduated from Marceline High School where she was also first chair flute.  During the summers she was a lead life guard. Hannah went on to St Luke’s School of Nursing in Kansas City where she achieved her RN.  Hannah married David John Troxel and had two daughters, Melissa (Sumner) and Lisa (Pickel).  They later divorced.  Hannah met and married the love of her life, William R Brady, June 3, 1978.  They had 14 fantastic years together until cancer took his life.  Hannah focused her energies on her career in nursing, where she was the first county jail nurse, a mental health nurse helping children and adults, a nurse with Ask A Nurse, a nurse recruiter, a case manager and a nurse manager.  Her greatest passion and love was helping care for her own grandsons, Cameron (wife, Amanda & great-grandsons Isaiah, Jameson), Chandler (fiancé Danielle), Calloway, Corban (wife, Madison & great-grandsons Bennett, Noah) and Jack.  The last 2 years of her life were spent cooking with her daughter Lisa and planning magical meals for the grandkids and family.

Hannah was a lovely lady who brought joy to everyone she met.  She had a flare for fashion and interior decorating for which we were all in awe.  Hannah was a treasure and she will be missed deeply by her friends and family.

The celebration of life will be held 11:00 a.m. Thursday, April 1, 2021 at the Meriden Community Church, 200 S Dawson St.  Meriden, KS 66512.  Visitation 10 a.m. – 11a.m. Thursday.  A lunch will be at the church afterwards.

The family requests donations to Alpha Christian Children’s Home www.alphachristianchildrenshome.com in lieu of flowers.

Messages & Condolences

From Harlan Wright...

My condolences to Hannah’s family. I knew her from growing up in Marceline, and had the pleasure of spending time with her. She was a joy to be around and although I didn’t know her as an adult I can only imagine she was a loving caring person !

From Brian Miller...

Aunt Hannah was amazing! What a heart! And, she never hesitated to tell you the truth, even if it was not what you wanted to hear at the time; a true teacher and confidant. She was in my life since the day I was born. Never failed to give me good advice. I will miss her, but will see her later.

From Pete and Janice Biggs...

Hannah was a high school classmate of mine at Marceline. We worked as lifeguards at the Walt Disney Municipal pool then became co-managers. I reconnected with Hannah a few years ago and what a blessing it was. My wife (Janice) and I enjoyed the lunch conversation about Royals, Chiefs, Jayhawks and family. I especially enjoyed catching up and sharing our life journey. Hannah I will miss your hugs and your xoxos at the end of messages!!
May God give Hannah’s family comfort. Please know she made peoples life better and bright.

From Marian Pannone...

I first met Hannah at Memorial Hospital in the early 90’s and continued to cross paths with her until her retirement at St. Francis. Will never forget her smile, especially when Bill Brady came to pick her up at work 🙂 Hannah was so proud of her family and I always enjoyed hearing her stories. She brought many smiles into our lives and will be missed!

From Sally Brooke...

I had the pleasure of meeting Hanna when I sold her beautiful home in Topeka. She was such a classy lady and really did have knack for decorating! Her home was just gorgeous! She was so much fun to work with! She was so excited to be moving to Lawrence to be close to her daughter and grandkids. I am truly sorry for your loss.

From Brenda L. Harrington...

Her smile is shared by her daughter Lisa (whom I work with at KU). Never had the privilege to meet her but through the words shared by her daughter, Hannah sounds like an amazing woman.

From Byron A Waldy...

Hannah has to be one of the most caring and compassionate nurses I have had the honor to work with . During my time at St Francis Hospital Hannah and I both worked in the human resource department. Her delightful smile and her quick wit could make any day an awesome day.
