Obituary

Ola B. Hardy
Born on August 18th, 1935 in Dawson Georgia.
She was the youngest of her family, and daughter of the late Eugene and Johnny Bell Burch.
On February 27th, 2021 at the age of 85, Ola Hardy went home to be with the Lord Jesus.
In her education, she received her diploma from the state of New Jersey and later went on to pursue
studies in nursing. Later in life, she retired as a corrections officer for the state of New Jersey.
Ola was blessed with a large and loving family, and an addition was made to the family on August 18th
1989 when she married the love of her life, Monroe Hardy. Monroe and Ola Hardy had resided at their
home in Ocala, Florida where she remained for some time after his death in 2014. They were always so
hospitable to friends and family, and present in the church community of the First Assembly of God in
Ocala.
Ola B. Hardy was a strong, fun-loving and vibrant woman with timeless class. She helped raise the
many nieces and nephews that the Lord blessed her with and lived life to the fullest. She enjoyed
traveling, watching her favorite tv shows and also faithfully tended to her garden filled with fruit trees
and flowers. She was a woman of impeccable detail and always kept her home in order, even teaching
some of her young nephews and nieces how to formally set a dining room table and maintain
responsibility. While she was a sturdy backbone to many, she was also docile and will forever be
remembered for her compassion, love and care that she shared as an aunt, sister, God-mother and
friend. She’s left a mark on all of the souls who’ve had the pleasure of knowing her, and she will always
be in our hearts.
Your presence we miss… Your memories we treasure. Loving you always, and forgetting you never.
Left to honor her legacy is Sarah McGee, Minnie Royal, a host of nieces and nephews, God-children
and numerous family and friends.

    Aunt Ola was truly one of a kind. She was funny and very vivacious. You could always count on her for a good laugh. She often reminded me of my dad, Ruben. I think they favored a lot and he like to crack jokes just like she did, lol. It was always fun whenever we would had the opportunity to visit her. Her hospitality was outstanding. We love you Aunt Ola and you will certainly be missed by us all.

    I loved my Aunt Ola and admired her strength of character. I will continue to be inspired by her tenacity for life in general, her determination in making things happen, and her perseverance in seeing it through no matter what, even amidst challenges.

    After the tears have dried and the goodbyes have been said today, all we have to hold onto are the happy memories that we’ve shared with Aunt Ola, the actions she took, the things she said, and most importantly, her ability to find humor and laughter in life events!

    This is what will keep her alive in our hearts and in our minds, and she will continue to live on, through the lives of those she touched and loved. Rest on Auntie! ❤
