Anna Hancock

December 12, 1973 — January 17, 2024

Anna Marie Hancock, born on December 12, 1973, in Anderson, Indiana, the daughter of Ronald and Sue Raines, who graced this world for 50 years, we celebrate a life rich in faith, compassion, and joy. Anna's journey began at Madison Heights High School, where she not only earned her diploma but also cultivated the qualities that would define her remarkable character. Her thirst for knowledge led her to Ivy Tech College, where she pursued higher education, laying the foundation for a purposeful life. Anna was joined in marriage to Glen Hancock on April 17th, 1999.

Anna's spiritual journey was deeply woven into the fabric of her existence, remaining a devoted member of the Christian Church. Bethany Christian Church in Anderson served as her spiritual haven, where her faith thrived, and she found a community that embraced her unwavering devotion.

A beacon of selflessness, Anna found immense fulfillment in serving others through mission trips that took her to diverse places. From Cookston Hills Children's Home in Oklahoma to the impoverished communities of Eagle Pass, Texas, the vibrant landscapes of Mexico, and the bustling streets of New York City, Anna's heart overflowed with love and compassion, leaving an indelible mark on communities far and wide.

Anna's love for adventure extended beyond charitable endeavors to her cherished vacations, with cruises holding a special place in her heart. These journeys became moments of joy and relaxation, especially when shared with her beloved husband, Glen. Their bond was a testament to love and companionship, creating a tapestry of beautiful memories enduring in the hearts of those who knew them.

A passionate advocate for animal well-being, Anna's profound love for dogs, especially her "Lovey Dovey," brought immeasurable joy into her life. The warmth and loyalty of her canine companion mirrored the qualities that endeared Anna to all who had the privilege of knowing her.

Anna leaves behind a legacy of love and kindness carried forward by her surviving family—Her devoted husband, Glen Hancock, father Ronald Raines, mother Sue (Frye) Raines,. She is also remembered by brothers Tim (Beth) Raines and Nick (Vanessa) Raines, along with several nieces and nephews and grandmother Crystal Frye. While grieving the loss of Anna, the family is comforted by the knowledge that she is reunited with her maternal grandfather, Merle Frye, Jr., and paternal grandparents, Charlie and Vella Raines.

Friends and family are invited to pay their respects at Bethany Christian Church, 1920 N Rangeline Rd., Anderson, Tuesday January 23rd from 11 am to 1 pm, with services at 1 pm. Interment of her Cremains will take place at a later date in the IOOF Cemetery, Alexandria,

The compassionate staff at Whetsel Funeral Service, led by Bud and Susan, is honored to provide care and support during this difficult time. Anna Marie Hancock will be dearly missed by all whose lives were touched by her kindness, compassion, and radiant spirit.
