Karen Lee Hannan

April 4, 1950 — April 18, 2023

Karen Lee Hannan, 73, of Rostraver Township, died Tuesday, April 18, 2023. Born in Pittsburgh on April 4, 1950, she was the daughter of the late Alvie and Christabelle (Hart) Branthoover.


Karen was a homemaker and was also a bartender at the Star Junction Fish and Game Club. She enjoyed spending time sunbathing and taking walks. She especially enjoyed the times with her husband Bill, to whom she was married for 54 years, at the fish and game club with their many friends, who were their extended family; they were always decorating for the holidays and planning something for the kids to enjoy at the club’s Easter egg hunt and Christmas stockings party. They enjoyed taking rides to Bennezette to see the elk, going to Lake Erie and hitting the casino. Every Thursday and Sunday you could bet she was going to dinner somewhere!! She loved the times with her grandchildren, taking them on trips to see the elk and the Christmas lights during the season. Most of all, Karen was a loving wife and mother who passed away from a broken heart with the most recent deaths of her loving husband and her twin sister. We are convinced that she didn’t want to die, but she also didn’t want to live with her broken heart. You are greatly missed by all of us and always will be in our hearts and we love you!!


She is survived by her son, Robert A. (Linda) Hannan of Belle Vernon; daughter, Laura (Mark) Uhrin of Perryopolis; grandchildren, Timothy Uhrin, Ashlee Uhrin, Evan Hannan and Raya Hannan; great grandchildren, Olivia, Leni and Theo; brother, Thomas (Debbie) Branthoover of Rostraver; numerous nieces and nephews including Alvin Branthoover, David Hamer, Donald Hamer, Holly Salko Branthoover and Tommy Branthoover.


In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, William R. Hannan Jr. on August 12, 2022; her twin sister, Sharon Hamer; and brother, Alvin Branthoover.
