Granny was an avid quilter who loved sharing her love of the art and her gifts with all her family and friends. She was a spirited outdoors woman, who loved to go out hunting and camping with her family every chance she had. She was always ready with words of encouragement and motivation…with a subtle reminder, a time or two, of who the best hunter was. She also enjoyed traveling each summer to the Appleton City Car Show where she would meet up with her fellow classmates.

She was always full of adventure, never would hesitate to jump on the motorcycle or UTV with her grandsons or go on a random road trip. Her family was her greatest pride and joy. There was never a missed opportunity to brag about the accomplishments of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She truly loved each and every one of them. 

She was preceded in death by her companion, Johnnie Perea; sister, Thelma Smith; brother in law, Murrel Smith; and grandson, Turner Hardesty.

She is survived by her three children, Ed Hardesty of Appleton City, Missouri; Scott Hardesty of Peralta, New Mexico; and Michelle Gallegos and husband Tim of Los Lunas, New Mexico.
