Margaret Martin Hardy

 

 

Funeral Service for Margaret Martin Hardy, 85, of Martinsville, will be at 11:00 am on Saturday, October 5, 2019, at Laird Funeral Home with Bro. Don Chumley officiating. Burial will be at Martinsville Cemetery.


Mrs. Hardy passed away on Monday, September 30, 2019, in Spring, Texas. She was born on November 27, 1933, in Grigsby, Texas.


Visitation will be from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Friday, October 4, 2019, at Laird Funeral Home.
Margaret lived in Grigsby until she was 4 years old, and they moved to Martinsville where they made their home near her 7 uncles. Margaret’s favorite memories as a child were those of her school days.  She often spoke of how simple things seemed, and how she loved walking home for lunch and going through the old natural rock store.  She loved her teachers and school in general.  She had a vivid memory of her teachers and what they taught.  Margaret would spend hours talking of the days of old when she enjoyed the rhythm band, the trips to the cedar tree where the water pipes served as “fountains”.  The stories she remembered seemed to be from a book of tales, but in reality, it was her everyday life.  Her passion for learning came exclusively from her times as a youngster with her teachers.  Upon her graduation from Nacogdoches High School in 1952, she pursued her dream of being a teacher by enrolling in Stephen F. Austin University.  She obtained her Bachelor of Science in 1955 and Master of Education in 1960.  She taught from 1955-1956 in Pasadena, Texas. She then taught in Martinsville beginning in 1962, initially as a substitute, followed by a fulltime position, until her retirement in 1989.  Her life after retirement was filled with wonderful memories made with those she loved.  Her love of life and family and her exceptionally happy demeanor will be forever remembered by everyone.
Margaret is survived by her daughter, Lisa Robinson and husband, Frank of The Woodlands; her brother, Lamar Martin of Martinsville; sister-in-law, Vickie Martin of Shelbyville; grandchildren, Jerry Robinson of Houston and Carey Robinson of Houston; great-grandchildren Katie Robinson Filipp and husband Robert of San Diego, CA, Andrew Robinson and Charlie Robinson of Houston; nieces, Janet Lucas and Jennifer Ford; and nephews Sean Martin, David Martin and wife Joanna, Kevin Martin and wife Renee.  She is also survived by other extended family and wonderful friends.


She is preceded in death by her husband, Tommy Hardy; parents, Quillion Oswell and Lessie Odet Bridges Martin; brother, Bruce Martin; and sister-in-law Kay Martin.


Serving as pallbearers will be David Bailey, Rocky Justice, Wesley Lucas, David Martin, Kevin Martin, and Sean Martin.
