Harden French Walton Freeman Casbon died peacefully and surrounded by her family on Thursday, December 12, 2013 at VNA Hospice Center in Valparaiso. Harden was born April 17, 1942 in Chicago, IL to Wilbur Freeman and Harden Walton Freeman. She is survived by her husband of 52 years, David Casbon; her four daughters; and six grandchildren. She is also survived by sister, Julia Lacey of Colorado; niece, Julie Howey; and nephew, Thomas Landgrebe. She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, John Freeman. Hardens family moved to Valparaiso when she was 13 . She was a graduate of Valparaiso High School Class of 1959. She attended classes at Purdue University and Valparaiso University. In October 1961, she married David Casbon in Ann Arbor, MI. Her proudest achievement was her four daughters: Tacy Borgman, Wendy Casbon, Carissa LaTourette, Erin Sachse, their husbands, Peter Borgman, Larry LaTourette, and Christopher Sachse and her six grandchildren: Stephanie and Elizabeth Borgman, Sam and Lillian LaTourette, and Alexander and Kate Sachse. Harden was immensely proud of her role as a full-time mother and family builder. Woe be to anyone who threatened her treasured brood. Harden will be missed by her family of fifteen at each family holiday and birthday celebration as will those who enjoyed her famous coffee cakes at Christmas. Her daughters will miss Hardens steady mentoring that followed each one to schools and new homes wherever they were.
