Mariel Elisabeth Hannah

 

MARIEL ELISABETH HANNAH, Born August 12, 1987 in Atlanta, GA, 18, died Sunday, March 26, 2006 in Grady Hospital in Atlanta, GA.

 

 Mariel's mother, Barbara Radford Bingham, was born and raised in Orlando (Evans HS grad), and, on her side of the family, Mariel's great, great, grandfather, Frederick Lewter, was one of Orlando's earliest settlers, arriving in Orlando in 1884, farming 250 acres surrounding what is now known as Orange Avenue. Mariel was baptized at Calvary Presbyterian Church in Orlando. Mariel was very close with her (late) maternal grandmother, "Grandma Trudy" Radford, a longtime member of that church. Mariel spent most Thanksgivings here in Orlando with her parents, sister and the extended Radford family, including her uncles David and Richard Radford and their families.

 

She is survived by her mother, Barbara Bingham, stepfather, Fred

Bingham, and younger sister, Avarie Hannah (Lake Wales, FL); and her father, David Hannah and stepmother, Ruth Hannah (Loganville, GA); and her maternal grandfather, W.E. "Bill" Radford has been an Orlando resident nearly 40 years. He resides in NW Orlando (Clarcona.) She will also be deeply missed by her first and second cousins, many of whom grew up in Orlando: Ted, Elizabeth

and Zoe Radford (Jefferson, GA); Kim, Keith, Zach and Alex Schamis (Atlanta, GA); Jason Radford (Orlando, FL); Tahniya Radford Back, Nariah and Haven (Sarasota, FL); Qwlin Radford and Halee (Boca Grande, FL); Percephoni, Jason, Zoe and Raena Juntilla (Belen, NM).

 

She was a freshman student at DeVry University in N. Atlanta (Alpharetta,) GA. She spent most of her childhood in Marietta, GA. She had made many friends in the communities in which she lived in the past five years: Charleston, SC; Clinton, SC; Frostproof, FL, and, most recently, Roswell, GA. Mariel added a creative flair to most everything she did, and was excellent at drawing. Many of her poems were selected and published in school anthologies, and fashion design was one of her many interests. Her Spirit will always be remembered as warm and playful, compassionate and caring. Her career was not yet settled- she had considered becoming a Veterinarian Technician before beginning classes just one month ago in DeVry University's business school. In celebration of her life and a tribute to our Beloved, please visit the website established in her honor www.marielelisabethhannah.com.

Site of Lewter House

Frederick Augustus Lewter came to Orlando in 1884 from Halifax, North Carolina. His family's name was Luther before they emigrated to the U.S., and he was descended from Martin Luther. In 1885, he married Linnie Holshouser. In 1886, they bought or built a six-room home here on a 250-acre plot of land that stretched from Orange to Magnolia Aves., and from Marks to Park Lake Sts. The house was gradually enlarged to accommodate their 11 children. He used to sit on the back porch and shoot ducks on the lake which used to be on this property, and sent his hunting dog to fetch them.

 

The Lewters owned the Standard Poultry Farm, one of the largest in the South. They had over 20,000 chickens of more than 40 breeds, as well as turkeys.

 

Mr. Lewter dug a ditch 10 feet wide and 10 feet deep to drain the overflow from Lake Given into Lake Ivanhoe at a cost of $10,000. He also built Colonial Dr. from Orange to Magnolia Aves. Park Lake St. began as a lane leading from the Lewter home to their barnyard and cow pasture. Mr. Lewter donated more land to the city for streets and other purposes than any other person. The home was purchased by Florida National Bank in 1957 for $215,000, and it was torn down to make room for a new bank building. Ground was broken for it in March of 1960. It cost $2 million, including the 200-car parking lot and 13 drive-in tellers. Later, the bank moved out and left the building vacant for several years before it was demolished on December 12, 1999.
