April 22, 1935 - November 8, 2012
JoAnne Hardman, 77, peacefully passed away on Nov. 8, 2012, in Vancouver, Wash., with her children and two generations of grandchildren surrounding her.
JoAnne was born to Shirley and Joe Hunter in Monmouth Ore., on April 22, 1935. She was the third of three children; her brother, Jerry Hunter, of Condon, Ore., preceded her in death.
She is survived by her brother David Hunter, of Salem, Ore.; three sons, Gene Hardman of San Diego, Calif., Dean Hardman, of Hood River, Ore., and Dan Hardman, of Colton, Ore.; and her daughter, Jan Smith, of Vancouver.
She is also survived by seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren and numerous aunts, uncles and nieces.
JoAnne resided in Hood River for many years and attended the Hood River Assembly of God church (now called River of Life Assembly) and lived the last few years of her life in Vancouver, where her daughter Jan and the majority of her grandchildren reside.
JoAnne’s favorite things in life were family gatherings and playing Pinochle.
She will always be remembered by her family as a selfless servant of God, a women who had little in terms of worldly riches, yet gave generously of what little she had and possessed all of what really matters: a deep faith in her Lord Jesus Christ, the wisdom of long life, the compassion of a caring soul and the never-ending love for her family, who will miss her tremendously.
A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at the Landmark Church, 1504 W. Main St. in Battle Ground, Wash. A potluck will immediately follow.
