She married Bob Hardas on October 7, 1978, in Terre Haute, IN.

Becky lived in the Morrisonville community since 1980, had a long nursing career, which included being employee of the month on numerous occasions.  Loving, giving, and inspirational often described Becky; and seeing her work ethic and attitude towards helping others, led both her daughters into the healthcare field as nurses. Flowers and tending her gardens were a passion, but second to the love for her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

  2. I am just devastated to read of the passing of Becky. We had been best friends since 3rd grade and had reconnected while working at TMH. I already miss her and wish I could have said goodbye.

  3. I am saddened to learn of Becky’s passing. I met her about a year ago and helped her get her Medicare insurance plan in place. I was just about to phone her to meet with her again when I read the newspaper. I am so sorry for your family’s loss.
