She was born Aug. 17, 1917, in Yakima to John and Marie Hardin. She graduated from high school in Yakima, attended Northwest Nazarene College and graduated from Seattle Pacific University. Nothing made her more proud than being a pastor’s wife for 40 years, a school teacher for 20-plus years and raising six children. She enjoyed making her homes welcoming for all who visited and was an avid fan of the Seattle Mariners. She loved to spend time with her family and minister to people and spread her love for Jesus and the Bible.

She is survived by daughters Janet Jackson (Larry), Judy Mitchell, Joanne Owens (Sam), Jeanna Rard (Jim) and Jami Wheeler (Bill); son Jerry McConnell (Pauline); 16 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.

A memorial service is planned for 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12, at The Church of The Nazarene in Enumclaw.
