Cecilia Dolores (Laurie) Hardy passed away peacefully in her home on July 19, 2021 at the age of 95. She married the love of her life Thomas E. Hardy in December of 1951 and sadly he preceded her in death in 2014. They retired to New Braunfels, TX in 1994 where they spent many years enjoying all that New Braunfels has to offer.
Those that loved Cecilia called her Bushia (grandma in Polish.) She was an avid cook and her Bushia pancakes and Bushia homemade bread were a favorite amongst her kids, grandkids and friends. Cecilia and Thomas had four children, Michael (Joyce), Thomas (Marie), James (Deb) and Catherine (Robert).
She will be greatly missed by her children, six grandchildren, (17) great grandchildren, one great-great grandchild and three adopted grandchildren. She was preceded in death by 2 of her grandchildren Phillip Hardy and Jon Hardy, also her parents and 7 siblings.
