Margaret (Margie) Rose Hardy, was born on January 29, 1951 in Woodward, Oklahoma to Carl and Wanda (Fritzler) Stricker. She was the oldest of four children. Margie grew up on a farm south of Tangier. She attended Fargo Public School and graduated from there in 1969. After high school Margie went to NWOSU in Alva for two years. While in high school Margie found her sweetheart and the love of her life James (Jim) Edward Hardy. In 1970 they were married. They then moved to Tyrone, Oklahoma in 1972 where she was a stay at home wife and a busy lady as Jim was the girls basketball coach. On September 8, 1973 they welcomed a beautiful baby girl, Carla Lynn Hardy. Three months after the birth of her daughter she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. In 1974 they loaded up and moved back home to Fargo, Oklahoma. On June 29, 1976 Jim and Margie welcomed an ornery baby boy into this world Jason James Hardy. In 1978 they moved to the farm south of Tangier. While on the farm Margaret had many roles. She was a ranchers wife and worked right along side Jim and then would be found in the kitchen cooking her family a meal. She also enjoyed playing the piano, sewing, making blankets, and designing jewelry. She also ran a great shuttle service for her kids. A true Domestic Engineer. She got to do a little bit of everything whether she wanted to or not. In the early 2000's they moved into the house they built west of Woodward. Many great memories were made as this was the home she spoiled her grandchildren in. In November of 2002 she witnessed her first granddaughter being born Katie Troylyn. In September 2004 Sarah Marie, and then in November of 2005 Gracie Malin and Emily Rose. Her grandkids were her pride and joy. Nana as they called her would give the girls about anything they wanted. In 2013 Jim and Margie built a cabin in Red River, New Mexico making that their 2nd home. This was the dream home they had always wanted and got to enjoy for five years.

Throughout Margie's years of life she enjoyed going on many road trips with the husband Jim. They visited 39 out of the 50 states. Margie had a love for shopping that no one else did. She also had a love for her husband that was so strong.
