She enjoys TV shows including Tyler Perry’s “Meet the Browns” and “House of Payne” and “The Andy Griffith Show.”
Hardy has been a member of Butler Street Baptist Church for more than 73 years. She is the oldest member. Though she is unable to continue attending in person, according to her family, she still tithes and takes Holy Communion.
She was an active member, participating in charity work. She helped cook for church fundraisers and worked as a Missionary board member.
“Due to her age, she’s unable to remain true to all her passions: going for walks, working in her yard, gardening and taking care of her porch plants,” her family said in the statement. “Regardless of her age, she remains to be a loving and caring grandmother, our ‘family backbone,’ a dedicated Church member and dear friend.”
Her birthday sparked a number of wishes on Twitter Monday.
