Leila (Roberts) Hanni - Youngstown, OH

Classification: Obituary
BOARDMAN, OH – Leila (Roberts) Hanni, 87, passed away peacefully at home with her loving family by her side on Monday, Jan. 20, 2014.

Leila was born Dec. 24, 1926, in Colwyn Bay, North Wales, the daughter of Anadlys and Mary Olive Roberts.

Leila immigrated to the United States in 1946, as a war bride after she wed her former husband, the late Atty. Don L. Hanni Jr., whom she met at a dance on the Colwyn Bay Pier during World War II.

Like a good Welsh lady, Leila thoroughly enjoyed song and dance accompanied by her favorite wine.

Leila volunteered her time with Meals on Wheels, the Ronald McDonald House, was a parishioner of St. Patrick’s Church in Youngstown, and was a life-long member and former president of the Calon Lan Welsh Club.

Leila was the love and foundation to her family of six children, 10 grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.
Many of the family’s happiest memories are those spent with Leila during summers at her cottage on Lake Chautauqua.

She leaves to cherish her memory, sister Olga Tree of Colwyn Bay; four sons, Don III (Rhonda), Robin (Anna), Keith (Mary Kathleen), and Mark; two daughters, Heidi and Holly; 10 grandchildren, Rachel, Don IV, Kimberly (Jared), Brent (Holly), Mark Jr. (Johnna), Meghan, Morghan (Jon), Max, Lyndsy, and Bobby (Lauren); eight great-grandchildren, Vanessa, Anthony, Maria Francis, Ethan, Noah, Scarlett, Logan, and Lia; niece Julie (Marty); and nephew David (Mary).

She was preceded in death by siblings, Monica Dennis, Sylvia Yarwood, and Michael Roberts; and nephew Christopher Dennis.

Leila’s primary caregiver, daughter, Holly, with whom she shared her home, would like to extend her gratitude to Leila’s many special friends and the team from Hospice of the Valley, and so many others who helped to give her care and comfort. .

Although she struggled greatly with a debilitating disease, she practiced the philosophy of her favorite Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas who advised, “Do not go gently into that good night. Old age should burn and rave at close of day. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Leila’s name to the Alzheimer’s Assistance & Referral Network, 4214 Market St., Youngstown, OH 44512.

Friends and family may call from 8:45 to 10:45 a.m. prior to the 11 a.m. Mass of Christian Burial to be held at St. Columba Cathedral in Youngstown, OH on Saturday Jan. 25, 2014.

The Rossi Brothers & Lellio Funeral Home in Boardman has been bestowed the honor and privilege of handling the funeral arrangements for Leila.

Family and friends may visit the Book of Memories at to view this tribute and send condolences to Leila’s family.
