Dorothy Josephine Hembree Hardeman
    Dorothy Hardeman, dubbed “Dot” by her great-nephew, lived her life the way most of us wish we had - happy, healthy and enriching the lives of all those around her.
    She did many things in her 98 years, from learning to drive a Model-T, to traveling the world, to playing Thomas the Tank engine and Super Hero with a 4-year-old. She knew how to wring a chicken’s neck and dress it for dinner, make the best “cathead” biscuits in the world and was famous within DFCS statewide for her amazing 8 egg pound cake. She also had a teensy evil streak that would come out when she played cards.
    She taught Sunday School for many years and touched the lives of hundreds of children, showing them what it really means to be a faithful servant. She was the embodiment of all things good: love, charity, kindness, humility and humor. All the friends and family of her generation have preceded her in the “Great Adventure” and there is much rejoicing in Heaven as they welcome her home.
    Arrangements were entrusted to Roper Funeral Home in Jasper.
