Bossier City, LA – Vickie McEacharn Hardin, 64, of Bossier City, passed away peacefully, at her home, with her husband at her side, on Thursday, October 4th, 2018. A memorial service will be held at 11:00 AM, on Oct.13, 2018 at Bellaire Baptist Church, presided over by Dr. Randy Harper.
The Lord blessed Bill & Mildred Brock, on May 24, 1954, as Vickie was born in Wichita Falls, Texas. After relocating to Bossier City, Louisiana, she attended Bossier schools and was a proud alum of Bossier High.
Some years later, Vickie obtained her undergraduate degree from LSUS, and later achieved a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science from LSU in Baton Rouge. Her MLIS paved the way for a long and rewarding career as a Librarian with Bossier Parish Libraries.
Vickie thrived in that environment with her love of reading and love of people while helping people both in and out of the library. Vickie was recognized at many nursing homes, as she would deliver books to read aloud, to those who could no longer read. She also delivered books to homebound patrons of all types.
Yes, you could say that she was quite the People-Person. Another joy for her was the love of the outdoors and enjoyed camping in Arkansas and Oklahoma, and another favorite pastime was having dinner with former Bearkat classmates, but most of all, she loved God and her family.
Mrs. Hardin was preceded in death by her parents: Billy and Mildred McEacharn, and her biological father, Bill Brock. Left to cherish her memories are: Her loving husband, Philip Hardin; daughter: Pam Lemoine and husband, Robert; sons: Brett Haney and wife Jennifer, and Keith Hardin; Grandchildren: Anayah Haney, Mikaelynn Haney, and Connor Hardin; her sister: Connie Kelley and brother Kevin McEacharn and his wife Vicky, as well as her nephew and nieces, all of her church family at Bellaire Baptist Church along with the Library staff and patrons, and other extended family, friends and former classmates.
The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at Willis Knighton Bossier for caring for Vickie. We will all miss her dearly.
