Condolences for Bess Hardcastle Hanff
Bess, my life-long friend. She was precious to many. After our auto accident in 1969, I lost most of my memory. She was my memory bank. Good and not so favorable. We kept each other in check on many subjects. God healed both of us in our own way. She shared her art talents and her precious Ali with me. Later on also her precious grand babies. She had a heart of gold. God be with her family and friends. I will miss her dearly.
Bess, you are such a kind and fun loving woman! You are also passionate about politics and your God, never backing down. You will be missed so much! Love you always.💖 Joyce
I first met Bess at a home fellowship. We were both newer to being in prayer in a small group, but within that group we grew. So grateful for her honest heart and praying for her request to lift her daughter Allie, who is now a believer! Prayer works! Praise the LORD!
Allie, NEVER, EVER believe to think that God has forsaken us due to loss. I promise He has not! She is with Him walking the most wonderful streets of gold! We will see her again!
Hang in there, Sister in Christ. We do not mourn as those who have no hope!
Bess was my Bible Study buddy. She and I facilitated many home studies together. She was a true example of an encourager. I will miss her terribly but know that she is rejoicing in the presence of our Lord. I cherish so many memories of my dear sister.
I am so very sorry to hear of Bess’s passing. We went to high school together and she was a good friend. Her smile and great laugh lit up a room. My prayers and condolances go out to the family. May you know God’s love and peace at this sad time. And may you be comforted through your beautiful memories.
I met Bess in Academy. She lived next door in the dorm and was so much fun and a joy to be with. She truly loved the Lord and proclaimed it on FB. Will miss her posting. Alissa, be comforted by the thoughts and prayers of all who loved your mom and remember the love and good times you had with her.
Bess, was such a caring lady that we had the joy of knowing. We shared many evenings playing Trivial Pursuit. Had lots of laughs and long conversations over many dinners and family events together. Our heart goes out to her daughter whom she loved dearly and her amazing grandchildren along with Alissa’s father, Alan.

Bess and I met in a Bible study, she was the leader. She was one of my favorite prayer warriors, always trusted her to pray. She was very encouraging and loved her family so much! Most of all she loved Jesus!!! You are so loved Ali and I am thankful to have known your Mom!
Bess and I had a common bond, through which we were able to support each other and know each other better. She has always shown such love and care. Her relationship with the Lord equipped her for great things here, and surely, great things in His presence now.
Bess befriended me at church and stayed my friend. I loved her very much, her heart for Jesus and what was right. She was truly the “dear one”. Till we meet again my friend. ❤️
Heartfelt condolences to the family of Bess Hardcastle Hanff!! She was a very special friend as well as a wonderful Mother & Grandmother. May she RIP until Jesus comes to take her home ♥️ Love from Charlene Masters
