Hannah Michele "Minga" Matthews, age 22, of Uniontown, passed away on Monday, January 11, 2021. She was born on August 17, 1998 in Uniontown, daughter of Tiffany Gaudiano and Gary Matthews.
Hannah had many attributes that made her unique: her forgiving and affectionate nature, her ability to always see the silver lining, she was selfless, fiercely herself in confidence, strong willed, she loved her family and friends unconditionally and had the biggest heart. She adored her cats dearly, Bella and Bubbie. Hannah loved glitz and glitter, attending concerts and dancing. When Hannah entered a room she lit it up with her smile, but it was her infectious laugh that will never be forgotten.
She was preceded in death by her grandfather, Eugene Gaudiano; great grandparents, Leonard and Shirley Gaydos.
