Mary Hardin

d. June 27, 2023

Mary L. Hardin began her life in Greenville, Pa on December 15, 1936. The first child of William and Mary Prosser. A unique and strong-willed woman who lived life on her terms, yet loved with her whole heart, whose generosity knew no bounds, departed this life June 27, 2023.

Although an eclectic work history: Meat cutter at A & P, Artos cutter at Packard Electric to Insurance agent at Metropolitan Life, Mary was able to retire at an early age to enjoy nearly half her years doing as she pleased. Who doesn't aspire to that?

A life-long student to be sure, she obtained her Bachelors' Degree when she was more than 60 years of age. A lover of all things artistic. Art: Viewing The Ansel Adam's exhibit was a favorite. Dance: Watching the Alvin Ailey troupe perform live. Music: Experiencing Alex Trebek conduct the Greenville Symphony, and personally, trying her hand at a great number of musical instruments. But she excelled greatly with oil on canvas, having her creations both exhibited and published.

Unfortunately, there were hardships to endure: the death of her husband Otis in 2004, followed by her son Terry McCurdy in 2010. Also, her brother James Prosser, as well as her parents predecease her.

Left to cherish her memory are her daughter Lynn (Guy) Hughes; her grandchildren Christina (Nick) Beith, Matthew Byers, Kevin Hughes, Sean (Rachel) Hughes, and Jamel Hughes; great-grandchildren Dylan Simmons, Evan and Leah Fisher, Ayanna, Andrew, Amari, Elliana, Willow, and Maxwell Hughes. Also surviving are her sister Suzanne (Larry) Vallee, brother William (Valerie) Prosser, sister-in-law Joan Prosser, Aunt Margaret Murphy as well as a host of much-loved nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Per Mary's wishes there are to be no services and cremation has taken place.

Thank you to Ohio Living Hospice Care: Missy, Keri, Dawn, Dan, Lee and Diane, and neighbors Kathy and Dan, as well as granddaughter Christina, sister-in-law Val and nephew Billy for exceptional, and compassionate care in Mary's last days.

Loutzenhiser Funeral Home in Greenville, Pa handled final arrangements.
