Mount Ayr Record-News, 1933

DEATH of J. F. HARDICK.

John Franklin HARDICK was born in the state of Ohio, August 27, 1848, and departed this life May 23, 1933, and being 84 years, eight months and 27 days of age. He was married to Rebecca FLETCHER [1852-1940] August 1, 1872, at Sullivan, Ill. Their years of married life were 61 years, eight months and 23 days. To this union were born four children - Ella M. DAVIS, Canoga Park, Calif.; Marion M. HARDICK, Grant City, Mo.; Etta B. COMER, Benton, Iowa; and an infant, who departed this life May 30, 1878. He is also survived by six grandchildren, nieces and nephews and a host of friends. The children and grandchildren, except those from California, were at his bedside when the end came. The daughter and husband spent the winter in the home helping care for her father, returning to their home in California March 12.

Mr. HARDICK served as Judge of the Court for two terms in Worth county, Mo., beginning with the year 1900. When called upon for his opinion he would speak fearlessly, ably and eloquently in defense of justice and right. He was also a member of the Order of I. O. O. F. since the year 1883. In the language of another, there lived and died no truer, purer, nobler man than John Franklin HARDICK.

While he was not a member of the church he was always deeply interested in religious work and was faithful in attendance as long as health permitted.

His form is now resting in slumber,
His life has thus made its last wave,
His place in the home is vacant
While the rain gently falls on his grave.

His eyelids have closed forever,
And he's sleeping beneath the cold sod,
'Tis sad for loved ones at home now,
But such was the will of God.

Funeral services were held yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon at the Baptist church, being conducted by the pastor, Rev. L. O. HOOKS, and the body was laid to rest in Rose Hill cemetery.

Card of Thanks.

The surviving members of the family take this means of expressing thanks to the neighbors and friends for the many acts of kindness during the illness of Mr. HARDICK and for the sympathy generously bestowed in the dark hour of sorrow and bereavement.
