Jane Elizabeth Hardt


Jane Elizabeth Hardt, 89, of Lake Placid, FL passed away on August 18th while under the care of Hospice. She was born November 23, 1930 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

In 1950, Jane (Reeve) married James F. Hardt in Brainerd, MN. They spent 70 years in loving and faithful service to one another.

Mrs. Hardt worked as an LPN at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Brainerd, MN for many years before she retired. She worked as a volunteer for the Senior Friendship Health Center in Naples for several years, and served those in the Moorhead Manor community whenever they were in need; whether it was a meal, a smile, or a time of prayer. She was a talented seamstress, an avid reader, and a gifted baker and  crafter.

Mrs. Hardt is survived by her husband, James F. Hardt, her siblings, Anne Tice (Richard), Martha Quam (Roger), and her sister in law Ramelle Reeve. She is also survived by her daughters, Sheryl Hawks (Michael), and Marsha Herder (Richard), her daughter in law, Sally Memmer (Paul), her grandchildren, James Hardt (Melanie), Benjamin Hardt (Shelly), Charles Hardt, Karen Monahan (Matt), Katie Stewart (Adam), Carl Herder, (Lauren), Chris Hawks (Sarah), Matthew Hawks (Becca), and Samantha Mihaescu (Stefan), as well as twenty-seven great grandchildren. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews who loved her very much.

Mrs. Hardt was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Mary Jane Reeve, her step mother, Lucille Reeve, her brother, William Reeve, and her son, Richard James Hardt.

Mrs. Hardt decided to follow Jesus as a child, and she lived a life of spirit-filled service to the Lord. She would want you to know that Jesus died on the cross to pay the price for your sins, and that all who call on His name and acknowledge His saving grace will receive the gift of eternal life. Mrs. Hardt was a special and wonderful person while she was here on earth, and she would want you to know that anything good you saw in her was all a credit to the work of God in her life.
