Frances S. Hardman
ANDERSON [mdash] We can only imagine the joy on Frances Schnuck Hardman's face when she met Jesus on Thursday evening, Sept. 12, 2019, at Miller's Merry Manor in Chesterfield. Frances was born Dec. 8, 1939, and reared in Atlanta, Georgia.
Frances, 79, was preceded in death by her parents, Lloyd Schnuck, Sr. and Caroline Schnuck; her husband, Kenneth Hardman; her daughter, Michelle Howell; her brother, George Thomas "Tom" Schnuck; and her sister-in-law, Barbara Schnuck.
She is survived by her children, Michael Forrest, Kathryn (Kim) Forrest and Matthew Hardman; grandchildren, Kat Forrest, Jessica Howell Edwards, Travis Howell, Kadin Hardman, Kennady Hardman and Karigan Hardman; great-grandchildren, Malia Wright, Clara Edwards, Zachary Edwards and Charlotte Edwards; sisters, Carole (Bill) Spotts and Patricia (Garry) Tolliver; brother, Lloyd Schnuck, Jr.; sister-in-law, Kay Schnuck; along with cousins and multiple nieces and nephews.
She completed her undergrad at Anderson (College) University and masters in education at Ball State University. Her entire professional career was served as a social worker for the State of Indiana and an educator within Anderson Community Schools. She enjoyed worshiping, serving and singing in the choirs at Eastside and Park Place Church of God.
Fran loved genealogy and served as family historian. She was an active member in the Daughters of the American Revolution, Kikthawenund Chapter, and founding member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, Anderson Chapter.
Rest in peace sweet sister, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend!
The celebration of life will be Monday, Sept. 16, 2019, at noon. The family will receive visitors at Park Place Church of God, 501 College Dr, Anderson, IN 46012, from 11 a.m. to noon, with funeral service immediately following at noon. Burial will follow at Maplewood Cemetery.
