Hard of Las Vegas, Nev.; two daughters, Lureen George of Hoosick Falls, N.Y. and Diana Barrows of Rutland; a brother, Jeffrey Hard of Richmond; four sisters, Jean Campbell of Pownal, Priscilla Nacy of Upper Darby, Pa., Alice Hartigan of Stowe and Sara Grey of Castleton; seven grandchildren; and three stepchildren, Thomas Chase Jr. and Cheryl and Prince Chase.
