PRICE/GREEN RIVER - Kay Francis Hardman, age 67, passed away at Utah Valley hospital with her family surrounding her from a long, hard battle with breast cancer.
She was born Oct. 16, 1941 in Price to Glen and Irene Wilcon of Green River. She married Wendell Weber. Together, they had two sons, Carl and Charlie. Later divorced. She had her baby girl, Cindy, and her son, Chris. She married Cecil Hardman Oct. 21, 1970. Together, they had their son, Terry. Gaining six stepchildren, "yours, mine and ours," they would say.
Kay was raised in Green River, moving to Price to further her education at CEU.
Kay loved going on long rides throughout the mountains and scenic routes of Utah with her husband, Cecil.
She was a very strong person, not letting a lot get her down, always looking on the bright side of things and accepting life for what it was. She always had a little joke to tell.
She loved family gatherings and being with all her grandchildren. She loved taking the kids camping. Her crystals, angels, candles and old country music.
We all knew we could always count on Mom.
Kay worked at Wellington Head Start for 15 years, receiving many awards for her achievements where she retired.

She fought the hard fight.
Please, not one more night.
You know we love you, Mom, but it's time to let you go.
As the gentle wind blew across the land, reaching out to take our mother's hand.
For the winds of the angels came calling out our mother's name.
Dear Kay, today is the day you shall not stay.
Left behind all the children's tears, loving memories of the years of joy and love a life well spent.
And now to God our mother went on angel wings, a heavenly flight the journey home toward the light.
