Hardy, Charlotte

Written by David Green.

Charlotte M. Hardy, 85, of Cynthia Drive, Fayette, Ohio, died June 15, 2013, at her home.

She was born Oct. 19, 1927, in Toledo, Ohio, to the late Albert and Audrey (Henning) Kemper. She married Eugene T. Hardy on April 12, 1947, in Angola, Ind., and he preceded her in death Nov. 24, 1997.

Charlotte was a 1945 graduate of Clay High School in Oregon, Ohio. She lived the majority of her life in the Toledo area, where she was employed in the sales audit department for JC Penney department stores for more than 30 years until her retirement in 1998. Charlotte and Eugene moved to Fayette in 1991, where they became members of Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church.

Charlotte was a dedicated advocate and volunteer for the Democratic Party, and she was an avid Ohio State sports fan. She had a skill and passion for crocheting, and she enjoyed giving blankets to her family members and for church festival raffles. She also enjoyed bowling and going to estate sales.

Charlotte is survived by three daughters, Linda (and Jon) Dydo of San Jose, Calif., Marsha (and Tom) Scampini of Richland, Mich., and Nancy Hardy of Wauseon, Ohio; seven grandchildren, Audra, Beth, Chloe, Rachel, Ben, Lee, and Trevor; and three great-grandchildren, Zach, Landyn, and Braylon.

In addition to her parents and husband, Charlotte was preceded in death by a sister, Betty Reid.

A Mass of Christian Burial is planned at 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 19, at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church in Fayette with Father Marty Nassr as celebrant. A luncheon will follow and interment will take place at Resurrection Cemetery in Toledo at 1:30 p.m. Visitation is scheduled from 4-8 p.m. Tuesday at Eagle Funeral Home-Barrett Chapel in Fayette.

Memorial donations are suggested to the CHP Hospice or Our Lady of Mercy Church.
