     The people of Minden were inexpressively saddened when the message was received stating the death of Harriett Currie Hardeman, wife of Harry H. Hardeman of Minden.
Mrs. Hardeman died in Rochester, Minnesota, Sunday, February 27th 1927, following an illness which became so grave a nature, that she was rushed to Mayo Hosp where her death occurred soon after. She was born in Corrigan, Texas, her parents, W. D. Currie and Frances Elizabeth Currie died some years ago. She was married to Harry H. Hardeman December 28th 1919 at the home of her brother C. R. Currie in Garrison Texas. The deceased is survived by her husband, one little daughter, Harriett, three sisters, Mrs. Clyde Kinder, Homer, La.; Miss Minnie Currie, New York City, and Miss Ruby Mae Currie, Vivian, La.; and brothers, C. R. Currie, Garrison Texas; V. B. Currie, B. S. Currie, Hemphill, Texas and M. A. Currie, Fastrill, Texas and uncle, Malcom Currie, Burks, Texas. The greater portion of the life of Mrs. Hardeman, before her marriage, was spent in Zwolle, La., where her parents resided for a number of years.
     Mrs. Hardeman was a graduate of the Normal College at Natchitoches, La., she attended Columbia University, New York; Peabody University, Nashville, Tennessee; University of Colorado and graduated from the University of Alabama at Auburn, where she received a Master’s degree. She was very ambitious and while frail in body, her brilliant mind was ever alert, grasping the deeper problems which might well tax the mind of more mature and experienced scholars.
     While devoted to her studies and possessed with a burning desire for more and more knowledge she was always the most devoted mother and wife, never for one moment did a desire for other attainments lessen a love and service, which was beautiful in its entirety. Failing in health she was accompanied by her devoted husband and little daughter to Colorado, where the past months were spent. Messages would come from time to time from her and the cheerful expression would ring true to her nature, which would never brook defeat, even in sickness. A determination to live for her husband, her little daughter, her sisters, brothers, and those she held most dear, actuated her very being.
     Funeral services were conducted from the Methodist Church in Minden of which she was a devoted member, uniting with the organization when very young. Reverend L. I. McCain read the sacred service and touching testimony was given of the life of the beautiful young woman – beautiful in person as well as in character.
The chancel and altar were banked with exquisite flowers, tokens of the deepest love and esteem. These beautiful flowers but fit emblems of the spirit of her who loved all things lovely.
     Interment was made in the City Cemetery and offerings were rich in floral display. The words of comfort and sacred hymns linger and there comes blessed realization the “We Shall Meet Again.”
     All members of the immediate family, with the exception of the little daughter of Mrs. Harriet Currie Hardeman, who remained with a friend in Colorado were present to the services of the deceased.
     There were: Mrs. And Mrs. Clyde Kinder, Homer; Miss Minnie Currie, New York City; Miss Ruby Mae Currie, Vivian, La.; C. R. Currie, Garrison, Texas; V. B. Currie, B. S. Currie, Hemphill, Texas: M. A. Currie, Fastrill, Texas, and Mr. Malcolm Currie, Burks, Texas.
