Betty was so generous of her time and money. She greatly impacted the lives around her and helped so many people for the better. Even as her health was failing she continued to help others in need.

Betty served her Lord diligently at Blue Ridge Baptist Temple for over 25 years and eventually South Haven Baptist church in Belton MO. Her influence and impact has touched the lives of those around her but especially her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren! There was nothing phony about Betty. She was a witness for Jesus Christ and lived her life in service of our Lord. Her testimony was strong as she entered the gates of Heaven on July 12, 2021 to be greeted by her Savior and those who went before her. Betty was a stirring example for her family and her friends and she will be greatly missed by all.

Hardee, Betty C.'s Guestbook

Betty was a gracious lady who’s passion for Jesus Christ will continue to radiate many more years while she’s gone. I will always remember her as my 3rd grade Sunday school teacher that I had 30 years ago, she was always so full of joy and glad to see everyone.

When you were in Grandma Betty’s presence you couldn’t help but smile. She was always so kind and happy. She will be missed.

Sara Burks

Betty was certainly a great witness regarding her faith and belief. She was always so friendly and always asked how we were doing. We are sure she will be united with her Lord and those of her family who have preceded her in death.

I was so sorry when I heard the news about Betty, but so glad that she is pain free. I know she is rejoicing in heaven with her beloved husband Ron and the many others that have gone on before her. Ron and Betty was loved by so many. They would do anything for you. When it was time for me to deliver our youngest son she had us bring Austin to their house and they took him to church and then brought him to the hospital after church. They were like grandparents to our boys. Terry, Gary, and Ronda may you and your families find peace and comfort in the days ahead. I'm so glad that we have the assurance that we will one day be reunited with those that have gone on before us. From Dan, Connie, Austin and Caleb Sayre

Betty Hardee, she will be missed! The mega Matriarch of the Hardee clan, and was never afraid to “Step into the water” for “ There is victory for the christian, Who walks the narrow way. There has been a prize appointed, For the soul who does not stray. Oh I want to live for Jesus, Be all that I should be. So that I can rest with him forever, Live eternally”. God’s peace to all!

My Condolences...a most delightful lady with a wonderful family!

I grew up with both Terry and Gary in Grandview, Missouri. Mrs. Hardee was always so kind and gracious when ever I was around the family. I just want Terry and Gary to know how very sorry I am for your loss. I know your Mom is happily with your Dad again and that one day you will see them! I pray God watches over all of you now and forever! God bless…

Betty will be sorely missed by all of her family and friends! She and Ron were so very gracious when Bill introduced us in about 2013 at a family get together in Belton. She was kind and caring. She is now safe with our Lord!
