She was co-writer on the songs penned by her husband, Archie.
The lifelong Alabama fan is also survived by a large extended family, who each year gathered for the annual Hannah family reunion. Christine took great pride in making sure everyone received notice through the newsletter of which she lovingly named the "Hannah Herald" and she personally mailed one to all members of the Hannah family every year.
