She was the last Hardy sibling, an aunt to J. Eddie and Carol Hardy and their children and departed a few months shy of the birth of her newest granddaughter.
A lifelong Connecticut resident, Mary Ann was born in Hartford where she never strayed far from. She is known for the vibrant, rebel life she lived, her eccentric sense of humor, and the pranks she would play, especially on her children. At her best, she was a funny, loving mother who instilled the importance of family values. She overcame a serious drug addiction and was most proud of her sobriety that was nearing close to a decade. Mary Ann spent the last few years of her life battling several serious health issues and being cared for by her daughter Susan, who at one point dedicated her life to being her caretaker and by her son Ray and his wife Ali who gave her the gift of family. Mary Ann departs this earth as a loving grandmother, who spent time traveling with her family, attending graduations, Cook outs and school concerts. Most recently she reconnected with old friends who she was excited to spend time with. Mary Ann’s greatest accomplishments were her children, who carry her legacy onward. A new founder of faith she put her life in God’s hands and was ready to find out if the grass was truly greener on the other side.
