Carmella Hardy, 84, of Bloomington died July 19, 2019 at Hospice House. She was born in Ellettsville on June 9, 1935 to Hallie C. and Elfreda (Hamilton) Weathers. She worked as a dental assistant at the Crest Dental Study at IU in the 1950s - 1960s. She graduated from Milady Beauty School in 1963, Milady Beauty College in 1966, and served as a beautician in Bloomington until just a few short years ago. Her business, Cuts ‘n Fashions at Carmella’s, served as both a workplace and a place to share her faith with her clients, many of whom were more like family and friends than customers. She was a member of the West Second Street Church of Christ in Bloomington. She taught children’s Bible Study classes to generations of children, including her own children and grandchildren. She attended ladies Bible Classes and hosted them in her home for many years. She also opened her home for a local congregation to hold services. She loved wildlife, and enjoyed all of God’s beautiful creations. She especially loved birds and the squirrels and rabbits who frequented her yard. Her favorite place to visit was the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and she passed her love of the park to her children and grandchildren. She most recently visited the park in October with her daughter and her family and loved all the beauty she saw there. She was preceded in death by her parents; one brother, Coziene L. Weathers; two sisters, Avonelle Stephens, and Maivereen Woods; her ex-husband, Roger Hardy; 1 niece, 2 nephews and 1 great-great niece. Survivors include her son, Roger J. Hardy (Sara) of Bloomington; her daughter Caree “Cymme” Jent (Dave) of Bloomington; two stepsons Nathan Hardy of Bloomington and Todd Hardy of Orlando, Florida; her beloved grandchildren Beau, Jackson and Harper Jent; two step-grandchildren Helen and Meredith Jent; as well as two other grandchildren. She loved taking Harper to Wendy’s and for strolls through the neighborhood, as well as playing baby dolls and most especially eating ice cream together. She loved taking Jackson to Arby’s when he was a preschooler, and feeding the squirrels with him in her yard. She loved taking Beau to McDonald’s for French fries when he was little, and special “dates” to Wendy’s when he was bigger. She loved having him hug her every day when he got off the bus, and his reminders of her upcoming appointments. She was their beloved gramma “Hey-Hey”. Visitation will be held at Day & Deremiah-Frye Funeral Home, 4150 E. Third St. Bloomington, 47401 on Monday, July 22, 2019 from 4-8 p.m. Funeral services are scheduled for Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. with visitation at 10:00 a.m. also in the funeral home.

Hardy/Jent family,
Sorry to read about your mom. I have great memories of her support of Cymme in dance. She loved to watch her perform. I know she also was happy that Harper was dancing too.
Sending healing thoughts and prayers.
Love,
Mary Sue

Carmella was my Sunday School Teacher at Church of Christ on Second Street when my great aunt Wilma Brinegar( who passed away this Easter) would take me there on Sundays. I always loved Carmella and she was a dear friend to my Aunt Wilma. She will be truly missed. I am sure she is singing hymns right now with Wilma celebrating in Heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with you all in your time of grief. Love April Edwards-Skinner

I was saddened to hear of the death of Carmella. She hired me right out of hairdressing school in 1965 to work in her shop on 17th Street. She was a wonderful employer and friend. When I was getting married about a year later, she traveled to Connersville, Indiana to style hair for me, my mother, my mother-in-law, and sister-in-law. That was her gift to me. I will always remember her and her kindness.

Emme says she remembers Harper and herself singing I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream...then Carmella would give them ice cream!
Prayers for you all! ♥️

I will always remember the time she had all of the kids from West Second St Church of Christ dress up as a bible character and the recreated stories in the Bible. One lovely lady who always had a smile. She will be missed😔 Our thoughts & prayers are with you.
