Magdalene (Hardin) Hardee, 92, of Gastonia passed away peacefully at the Robin Johnson House in Dallas on Thursday October, 17, 2019. “Maggie” was born in Andrews, North Carolina, but considered Gastonia her home. She was an active member of Unity Baptist Church in Gastonia. She was a strong woman of faith. Professionally, she worked at Homelite, but she was better known as a Beautician who worked out of her home. Maggie was close to her family. She provided child care for many in her family, even caring for children from generation to generation. She leaves behind a multitude of nieces and nephews. She will be dearly missed by all that knew and loved her.

Maggie is the daughter of the late Dock and Emer (Strange) Hardin. She married her husband, Ashley G. Hardee, Jr. in 1942 and he preceded her in death in 1976.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at 2:00 P.M. on Monday October 21, 2019 at Carothers Funeral Home Chapel, 2205 Williamsburg Drive, Gastonia. Pastor Roger Mathis, of Unity Baptist Church in Gastonia, will offer words of encouragement and hope for family and friends that gather to remember Maggie.
