POLLO, Hannah Elizabeth

March 7, 1994 – June 4, 2012

Hannah Elizabeth Pollo of Calgary, passed away on Monday, June 4, 2012 at the age of 18 years.

Hannah was attending Bishop O’Byrne High School and was active in athletics. Her greatest passion was dancing and participating in life. She possessed an artistic flare in everything she did and had a knack for making people smile. An honour student, she was aspiring to take business at Western University. Her energy and zest for life allowed her to live life to the fullest. She would say: “If I’m not exhausted by the end of the day, it was not a successful day.”

Hannah is survived by her loving family, parents Connie and Wayne Pollo; brother Stephen; grandma Angeline Pollo; grandpa Bruce Dundas; as well as numerous other relatives and friends. She was predeceased by her grandpa Daniel Pollo and grandma Kay Dundas.

Relatives and friends are invited to Prayers and Tributes at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church (1414 Shawnessy Boulevard S.W.) on Friday, June 8, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church (1414 Shawnessy Boulevard S.W.) on Saturday, June 9, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    Although I didn’t know Hannah very well, I knew her because she went to my dance studio, Danscott. She was such a talented and artistic dancer, as well as a stunning young woman. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends. Danscott misses her dearly. This weekend, we are having a dance performance. I will dance harder than I ever have, and I will dedicate my work to Hannah. God bless you all.

    My sorrow, grief, pain, and sadness are shared by many who knew this vivacious girl the world was blessed with. Hannah was one of my closest friends throughout junior high and high school, and my sincere condolences reach out to all who knew her. Knowing Stephen, Connie, and Wayne, this situation must be incredibly tough. My heart reaches out to you specifically. The best words I can use to describe her include beautiful, hilarious, and competitive. Right now, I am wearing a shirt that her and I bought to match one another in grade eight. The consistent scourging of my fridge, hunting for ripe raspberries, or the random trips to south centre to buy Bernard Callebaut chocolate. The time we spent five hours taking the train to Peter’s Drive In, because we just had nothing better to do. These are the memories I will forever value and hold close to my heart. My family and I will miss you dearly, my sister.
