Dorothy G. Hardman
1921 - 2013
At age 91, Dorothy G. Hardman of Payson, passed away peacefully on July 30, 2013.
She was born Nov. 29, 1921 in Bakersfield Calif. to Lewus and Lily Griffith.
She lived with her husband in California for most of their child-rearing days, raising their children and running a family business where she worked as a bookkeeper.
She was a wonderful wife and mother and became an adoptive mother to her children’s friends. After her children were grown, they sold their business and moved to Arizona and fell in love with Payson.
Mrs. Hardman was preceded in death by her husband, John L. Hardman. Her surviving family members include her daughter, Mareena Lynn Cords, her husband John F. Cords, her son Robert J. Hardman and his wife Stella Hardman; grandchildren, Michael Atwill, his wife Leanne, and Alex and Bret Hardman; one great-grandchild, John Henry Hardman.
There will be no funeral or memorial as per her request. The family asks that any donations made in her name be given to Hospice Compassus. Hospice helped in so many ways with the passing of her husband and in the last week of her life was a great blessing.
She will be missed and remembered with great affection.
