Obituary Condolences

formerly of Stow, Maynard and Leominster

Bernice D. Hardy -- Dot or Buzzy as she was known to friends, formerly of Stow, Maynard and Leominster, died Saturday, October 20th 2012 after a brief illness. She will be sorely missed by her loving family and her many friends.

The former Bernice Darling, was born in Marlboro, MA on April 11, 1926. She was a homemaker and also held various local jobs in school lunch, grocery stores and hardware stores. She was a 4-H leader, a Welcome Wagon Hostess, and a prolific late blooming artist. Starting in her late 60's, she loved participating in the Stow Art class every week. As of recent years, her exposure to various mediums made her continually challenged, encouraged and inspired to work on new things, though her favorite forms were acrylics and pastels. She loved giving her work to her family and friends, and made sure to make copies so that her artwork could be shared on calendars and on notecards. Her presence will be missed.

She is survived by her four daughters: Linda Gould and her husband Rich of Lunenburg, Ellyn and her husband Bob of Lancaster, Diane Whitney and her husband Bob of Bolton, and Marsha Hardy and her companion Ralph Perenzin of Princeton. She also leaves eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband Woodrow L. Hardy in 2006.
