Let the memory of Hannelore be with us forever.
  • 84 years old
  • Born on March 10, 1935 in Germany.
  • Passed away on July 28, 2019 in Bessemer, Alabama, United States.
Hannelore “Hannah” Dawson, a resident of Bessemer was surrounded by her family as she made her transition to meet our Lord on July 28, 2019 after a fierce battle from a recent stroke. She owned and operated Hannah’s Beauty Shop in Fairfield for over 50 years, there she used her talents and warm nature to create lifelong bonds and her clients who in turn became an extension of her family. The compassion that she displayed was not only given to the living but also to her clients who had passed away as she would do their hair at numerous funeral homes throughout Jefferson County in her words “to make them pretty one last time”.

She was a feisty German immigrant who was possibly one of the most determined and strong-willed individuals to walk upon the earth. She never met a stranger and her family often joked that she was the original “Hannah Home”, helping the homeless and less fortunate, cooking for family and friends, driving to or arranging travel for her clients that were homebound or alone, and many other thoughtful gestures long forgotten by today’s society. She was definitely a fighter overcoming many obstacles and living a life filled with purpose.

Her greatest contributions to life were intangible things, her smile, her laughter, her dedication to her family and friends. While she would not have been considered wealthy if measured by material things by all other standards she was blessed and so were all that knew her,her tenacity and giving spirit now gone will make the world a much poorer place.

She is survived by her children; Bobby (Lorna) Tucker, Richard Tucker, Charles Tucker, Rodney Tucker, Alvin Tucker, Ellen (Amy) Scheirer, and Dee Dee Macon, 10 grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren.

Hannah was a great person and a wonderful mother-in-law. She could cook anything you asked for and wow, it was awesome! I loved her and she will be truly missed.

Hannah was a kind and loving person. Always with a smile and always eager to help anyone who needed it. She loved her family and reveled in doing things for them. She will be missed by many.
