loved ones. Mrs. Hardon lived in Scottsdale, Arizona since 1970. Before retiring, she was the executive secretary to the former owner of the Carefree Inn and Resort. In 1946 during World War II, she served in Stuttgart, Germany as secretary to the Chief of Telecommunications for U.S. Intelligence with the Civil Censorship Division.

While living in Brussels, Belgium she was the confidential secretary to the Chief of the Air Force Section at the American Embassy. She was an exceptional tennis player, wife, mother and Nana. She possessed a rare ability to keep track of important events and celebrations, and to maintain a lifelong correspondence with family and friends. Mrs. Hardon was married for 47 years to Cornelis Johannes Hardon II, her "adoring Kees", who predeceased her in 1994. Their first born son, Jeffrey Kees Hardon predeceased them in 1978 at only 29 years of age.
