"Auntie Gram" 

Nancy Jo Wilson Hardman of Murray, UT, our cherished mother, daughter, sister, aunt, grandmother and friend, passed away peacefully September 13, 2018 at 9:39 a.m. surrounded by her loving family.

Nancy was born February 2, 1956 to Jack W. and Freeda B. Wilson. She grew up in Murray, UT and married the love of her life and true soulmate, Randy Hardman on September 1, 1972. She worked for the United States Postal Service and retired as U.S. Postmaster in 2005. Nancy had many passions in life including traveling, stamp collecting, gardening (greenest thumb in the world), music and attending live concerts. Her biggest passion was being “Gramm” to her two beautiful granddaughters, Lily and Ellyot.

Nancy, you were a light that burned brightly for all of us during your 62 years. You were the warmest, most caring and loving person in the world. Your infectious smile, unmistakable voice, and that mischievous twinkle in your eye brought instant happiness to whomever you encountered. The world will be such a lonely place without you. 

As deeply heartbroken as we are to lose such a beautiful soul, our hearts are comforted knowing that you have reunited with your Savior, your mother and father, brother, baby girl and adoring husband.

Nancy is preceded in death by her husband, Randall Craig “Randy” Hardman; her baby girl, Nancy Louise Hardman; her parents, Jack W. and Freeda B. Wilson; and her brother Thomas Charles “Tommy” Wilson. 

Nancy is survived by her sons, Dean (Rochelle) Hardman; Dylan (Carin) Hardman; granddaughters, Lily and Ellyot Hardman; brother, Rick Wilson; sister, Marti (Stan) Davis; and numerous nieces and nephews, whom she loved very much.
