Linda Hardesty


MALINTA -- Linda A. Hardesty, 63, of Malinta, Ohio, died Saturday, December 29, 2012, in Rollin Township, Mich., from injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.

She was born April 29, 1949, in Shelby, Ohio, and was the daughter of the late Bruce and Dottie (Parrot) Cunningham. She was married on March 14, 1970, to Robert L. Hardesty. Linda worked as a secretary for the Jack Collins Insurance Agency in Napoleon, Ohio. However, her passion resided in her love for horses. She started early in life riding horses and enjoyed taking trail rides in Oak Openings or Hocking Hills and even in several local parades.

She is survived by her husband, Robert; daughter, Robin (Tony) Buckmaster of Napoleon; son, Jeff (Jamie) Hardesty of McClure; six grandchildren; sister, Mary Fields of Bowling Green; and two nieces.

A memorial service date and time will be published later when her husband's health permits.

The family suggests memorial contributions be made to National Fibromyalgia Association or a charity of the donor's choice. Online condolences may be made at
