Hardison of Wadesboro NC, seven children, Henry Thomas Liles (Elizabeth Ann) both of Winston Salem NC, William Liles of Boston, MA, Carrie Bernette Thomas of Copaigue, NY, Gwendolyn Joyce Gray of Charlotte, NC, Jacqueline Rubio of Wadesboro, NC, Harlie Leonard Hardison (Melissa) both of Greensboro, NC, and Pamela Denise Peterson of Greensboro, NC, 21 grandchildren, 31 great grandchildren, two sisters, Willie Mae Hinton of Wadesboro, NC and Beatrice Little of Dallas, TX.  Three sisters-in-law, Louise Luallen of Greensboro, NC, Myrtle Hardison of Wadesboro, NC, Pricie Hardison of Wheatly Heights, NY, One brother-in-law, Lee Thomas Hardison of Wadesboro, NC, nieces, and nephews, cousins and a host of friends.

    I truly enjoyed my visits with Mrs. Hardison while having the pleasure to take care of her during my home health service. A beautiful woman who loved her family unconditionally, and I especially admired her loving dedication to her husband, whom I cared for years ago in ACH. I know she will be truly missed! God please bless her family during this time of sorrow.
