She is survived by: Her husband of 68 1/2 years, Ken Hardin; her sons and their wives, Wally and Vicki Hardin, and Todd and Barbara Hardin; fortunate grandchildren in order of birth, Kelsey Stallings (Jeromy), Casey Hardin, Kendyl Shrogin (Paul), and Karley Hardin; very fortunate great-grandchildren, Paige Stallings, Tyler Stallings, Kaison Shrogin, and Nova Shrogin; her sister, Charlotte Long and her son, Andy Prichard and his family; brother-in-law, Robert (Butch) Roberts and his wife, Judy Roberts.

Mom was a great testimony for Jesus and would share with anyone that would listen.
