Left to cherish her memory is her daughter, Maureen McKissack; three sons, Dennis, Jerry, and Mike Hardiman; grandchildren, Hall Adams, Jack Adams, and John Paul Hardiman; and great-grandchildren, Kayla, Ty, and Savanah Hardiman, and Elizabeth and Beck Adams.

Theresa met the love of her life on the Staten Island Ferry. She was a military wife and upon retirement, they made Louisiana their home. Other than her husband, her children and grandchildren were what made her happiest.

She died peacefully with all her family around her. She was a devout Catholic and a member of Christ the King Church. She loved life and on one could ever believe she was 99 years old.

She will be missed by all who loved her so much.

The Final Salute

“Brothers and Sisters in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Mrs. Theresa L. Hardiman a loving Military wife who provided dedicate service to her family, her community and her country. To her family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Theresa. To Theresa it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank her for her devotion to her husband, her family, the U.S. Military and her country. Only a military wife knows the difficulties and great sacrifices associated with rearing a military family that relocated frequently and that often included long separations from the one they loved most and anxious moments of concern for their safety. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion, the VFW Comrades of Post 4588 and the Disabled Veterans of DAV Chapter 30 in Shreveport and Bossier City, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Theresa’s family and loved ones.
