Brenda Hardiman was a Christian woman who loved her family and her church with her whole heart. Ms. Hardiman loved babysitting all five of her grandchildren because they brought joy to her life. She crocheted small blankets for her grandchildren, which they called “lovies” and they would not go anywhere without one and definitely, would not go to sleep without one.
Ms. Hardiman was an award-winning baker and loved to cook, especially desserts – pies and cakes. Her specialty was homemade bread that everyone raved about after their first bite. Church socials was one of Ms. Hardiman’s favorite activities where she would show-off her baking skills.
Ms. Hardiman never seemed to have a bad day, she always greeted everyone with a smile and a positive attitude. She will be greatly missed.
