LINCOLN – Jeanette A. Harding, 82, wife of the late Myron Harding, died Sept. 17, 2007, at a Lincoln hospital. She was born Nov. 3, 1924, in Macwahoc, the daughter of Fay and Pauline (Ames) Jordan. Jeanette worked as a mender at the worsted mill in Lincoln, was co-owner of Jordan’s Corner Store, Highland Avenue, Lincoln, and was a bus driver for Region III in Lincoln. She was a member of the Lincoln Congregational Church and VFW Post No. 1438. Our family mourns the loss of this special lady – a sister, our mom, our grandmother, our friend, our teacher. We will miss her caring, her generosity, her courage, her presence and her sense of humor which she carried with her – even through the terribly difficult days leading up to her death, still trying to make things as easy as possible on everyone. Each of our lives are better for having known her. The lessons that she taught each of us, through her example, will be with us always. We will try to do her proud. We have all said our good-byes to her. It has been hard, and we have a lot of grieving left to do, but she taught us that life does go on… so we have reluctantly let her go. We ask that each of you do the same. Remember her in your own way, perhaps by shedding a tear, saying a prayer, smiling at the memory of a funny moment or giving a “bingo” yell… Jeanette was never one who liked a big hub-bub, so why start now. She is survived by her children and their families, Larry Harding Sr. and his wife, Daria, of Berwick, La., and their children, Johanna, Larry Jr. and his wife, Melanie, Laurie Olsen Bennett and her husband, John, of Lincoln, and their children, Kimberlee Bennett of Portland and Carolee Bennett Sherwood and her husband, Dave, of Castletown, N.Y., and Dena Harding Rusak and her husband, Bruce, of Blairstown, N.J., and their children, Nick, Kayla and Dan; a brother, Nathan Jordan of Sangerville; four great-grandchildren and a few nieces, nephews and cousins. There will be no visiting hours or service, but we know that many of you will have us in your thoughts and prayers and we thank you for that. Those who wish may donate in her memory to the Roofing Fund at the Lincoln Congregational Church. Donations may be sent to Clay Funeral Home, 7 Lee Road, Lincoln ME 04457.
