She was born in Forsyth County to William Henry and Hilda Ryan Moser on Sept. 22, 1941. She went to school at Lewisville School and graduated from Southwest in 1959. She married Larry Hancock on Oct. 15, 1976 in their home in Bermuda Run. She worked 40 years in the banking industry retiring in 1996 from Branch Banking and Trust Co. She began her career with First Federal which became Southern National and later Branch Banking and Trust. She held various positions, including branch coordinator, merger team trainer, and loan executive. During this time she made many friendships and lasting memories, including a special group of co-workers she referred to as “The Hens”. The Hens and her made many memories as they enjoyed crafting, traveling, shopping, celebrating birthdays and most recently meeting monthly and dining out together. She was truly “Old School”. She learned from her parents that hard work earned value and rewards. She was the definition of the “woman behind the man”. She supported her husband in many business ventures, and they both believed “if you ain’t the lead dog, then the scenery don’t change much” way of doing things. They began the cable TV franchise, River Cable, as their side job in Davie County. They worked by each other’s side, completing the monthly bills at their kitchen table. Later River Cable was sold to Triad Cable, which then became Spectrum. She was also involved with her husband’s endeavors at his day job with Long Communications, which was sold to Tyco Communications. She always called things as she saw them,. They traveled the world together and found St. Petersburg, Fla. to be their second home, as they wintered there for the past 20 years. She had a passion for shelling and would comb the area beaches for hours. Having never met a stranger, she formed many connections with fellow shell collectors. She also enjoyed and felt most relaxed watching the boats and dolphins pass by on the Boca Ciego Bay. She knew she was blessed. She was a generous, enthusiastic, dedicated and tenacious soul with a get it done attitude.  She never thought twice about opening her home or heart.
