Vera Irene (Swayze) Hardy, 76, of Burley, passed away on Saturday, November 14, 2020. Vera was born February 7, 1944 to Helen and Art Swayze in Modesto, California.

For many years she worked for Connor’s Cafe and enjoyed working and visiting with her coworkers and customers. But her life was her family, she cared for her mother Helen Boyd till her death. She and Don were always there for their kids, family, or anyone in need. We will always remember Tuesday nights. Tuesday was family dinner night! No one missed it! For many years all were invited.

Vera attended the Pioneer Revival Center in Declo, Idaho and was very involved with the church. Vera was preceded in death by her parents, Helen and Lester Boyd; her beloved husband Don Hardy; her brothers Jim and Danny Boyd of California; she is survived by her children Robb (Kelle) Hardy of Jerome, Cathy (Steve) Buerkle of Heyburn; and granddaughter Lauren Hardy of Jerome; sister Brenda Armstrong of Modesto, California; brother Tom (Becky) Boyd of Sacramento.

You will be missed by all. Take peace Vera is with the love of her life Don, and her beloved mother. She will never be in pain again!
