OBITUARY - Isaac L. HARSH

Isaac L. "Ike" HARSH was born October 5, 1917, in Mount Ayr, Iowa, to L. L. "Roy" and Mildred (HARDING) HARSH. He died Monday. He graduated from high school in 1935 in Pampa, Texas. Mr. Hash and his family lived in Glennwood, Texas, for many years. His siblings are Wanda, Pauline "Toots," Ruby, Rex and Melvin, of whom only Ruby and Rex survived. He and his first wife, Nadice MILLER, had two children. Mr. HARSH worked in the mine at Mogollon in the early 1940s, when he met his wife of 50 years, Wilda WADE of Questa. She preceded him in death, as did his grandson, Loy TATE, in 1984. He is survived by his children, Eddie HARSH and his wife, Linda, of Boise, Idaho; Bessie HARDT and her husband, Red, of Sooth Bebit, Ill.; and Rowena TATE and her husband, Larry, of Silver City. He had 13 grandchildren, including Roy and Rose TATE of Playas, Tyra (TATE) MOORE of Silver City and Tayna TATE of Silver City: 18 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-granddaughter. He is also survived by his brother, Rex HARSH, and his wife, Donna, of Buena Pamt, Calif.; his sister, Ruby KAPPMEYER, and her husband, "Kapp," of La Vernia, Texas; several nieces and nephews; and his special friend, Janet STEINBERGER.

He loved to joke and spin tall tales. He wrote some poems and was a doodle cartoonist. Mr. HARSH liked good music and going to the mines. He got joy from seeing wild animals. In recent years, he was active at the Silver City Senior Citizens Center, where he spent many hours with his friends. He was a member of the Gila Rounders, a dance group; this gave him much pleasure. He worked in the oilfields in Texas, in the mines at Mogollon, and ran the Conoco station in Quemado. He worked many years on road construction, living all over the state of New Mexico. He ran the lay-down machine for the asphalt, and he worked for Home State partners in Grants.

He and his wife, Wilda bought a farm in northeast Arkansas where they raised cattle, hogs and hay. He moved to Silver City to be closer to family.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Indian Hills Baptist Church building fund or the Silver City Senior Citizens Center.

Pallbearers are Larry TATE, Roy TATE, Charlie HARSH, Ricky NARDT, Eddit HARSH, Alfred SEDULLO and Vincent WHITE. Honorary pallbearers are his many friends from the senior citizens center.

Visitation will be held Wednesday from 5-7 p.m. in the Curtis-Bright Funeral Home chapel. Services will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday at the Indian Hills Baptist Church. Interment will follow at Memory Lane Cemetery. Family members selected Curtis-Bright Lordsburg Funeral Homes to Serve them.
