Obituary


Theresa “Terrie” Fish-Hardison (66yrs), Ocala
 
Terrie found peace on September 28, 2021 after battling valiantly against complications arising from COVID-19.
 
Terrie was born in Saint Petersburg, FL to John and Marlene Barnhardt. After graduating from Gulf High School in New Port Richey, FL she began building her reputation as a hair dresser. In 1978, Terrie found what would be her calling and biggest passion in life. She became a mother.
 
While her reputation as a hair dresser grew in the 1980’s, so did her hair. With her big hair and bigger heart, she raised five boys and, to varying degrees, many of their friends and a cousin. Always a mother, she selflessly gave all she could to support “her boys” through life. Her capacity for empathy and to care combined with a somewhat ornery sense of humor cultivated many friendships. Always comfortable in conversation and genuinely curious, she often became quickly acquainted with just about anyone she met which always served her well personally and professionally. Terrie’s work over the years in service to caregivers of persons suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia touched many lives.
 
Terrie’s memory lives on in all whom she knew, while she is survived by her extraordinarily clean kitchen, loving husband, David Hardison of Ocala, FL, her son’s; Bryan (Venera) Fish of Hong Kong, SAR, Brent (Amber) Fish of Ocala, FL, Dana (Kayla) Fish of Ocala, FL, James “Jimmy” Hardison of Jacksonville, FL, and Stephen Hardison of Cape Coral, FL, thirteen grandchildren, her mother, sisters; Katherine “Kathy”, Laura, Cindy, Sheryl, and Trisha, as well as dozens of nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles whom she loved immensely.
 
While Terrie’s life will be celebrated in perpetuity by all who knew and loved her; a Celebration of Life service will be held at Blessed Trinity Church  in Ocala at 12:00p.m. on October 16, 2021.
