Reba is survived by her 5 children, son Ken Hardy (Lucy) of Augusta, GA, daughter Kathy Smalley (Jerry) of Alpharetta, GA, son Kris Hardy (Susan) of Martinez, GA, son Kerry Hardy (Beth) of Augusta, GA, and daughter Kelly Enser (Tom) of Buford, GA, 17 grandchildren, Sam Hardy (Allison) of Augusta, GA, Caroline Lane (Franklin) of Waynesboro, GA, Steve Hardy of Augusta, GA, Catherine Hardy of Augusta, GA, Ben Smalley (Madeline) of Atlanta, GA, Katie Rowe (Will) of Huntsville, AL, Andy Smalley of Apopka, FL, Tom Hardy (Kelsey) of Charleston, SC, John Hardy of Nashville, TN, Beth Hardy of Atlanta, GA, Rhodes Hardy (Christina) of Charleston, SC, Zach Thompson of Dallas, GA, Tyler Thompson of Dallas, GA, Knox Hardy of Augusta, GA, Matt Enser of Buford, GA, Andrew Enser of El Paso, TX, and Anna Enser of Buford, GA, and 4 great-grandchildren, Lucy Lane, Maggie Lane and Hardy Lane of Waynesboro, GA, Thomas Hardy of Charleston, SC, and Emily Lowe and Levi Lowe of Huntsville, AL.

While a student at Russell High School in East Point, Reba was a multi-sport athlete.

She served on many committees, served as Sunday School Secretary, sang in the church choir, chaperoned youth trips, participated in church improvement projects, coached athletic teams and more over the 5 decades she was involved in the church.

Reba was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, neighbor and friend. In later years, she enjoyed tending her flowers, bird watching, reading, caring for her beloved dog Shorty, and keeping up with the grandkids. She will be dearly missed.
