MARJORIE MAE MOSS HARDY was born August 28, 1920 in San Antonio, Texas to Holmes and Mae (Wilburn Ratliff) Moss; she died of natural causes at the age of 98 on October 6, 2018 in San Antonio. She was preceded in death by her parents, brother Charles Holmes Moss; first husband of 41 years, Dr. John Henry Bohmfalk; and second husband of 15 years, Robert Lewis Hardy.

She earned a B.S. degree in elementary education from the University of Texas and taught school in Mason and Galveston. She was a member of the Alamo Mission Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas and served for 4 years as chair of the Alamo Committee, which was in charge of the Alamo complex. She also served as chairperson of the DRT Library Committee. She was the first president of the Blue Bird Auxiliary of the Southwest Texas Methodist Hospital. She was state president of the Texas Association of Hospital Auxiliaries. She also served as president of the San Antonio Council of Hospital Auxiliaries and of Holly Garden Club.

She was a member of Laurel Heights Methodist Church; Texas Chapter #35 Order of the Eastern Star; Ol' Shavano Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution; Descendants of San Jacinto; the Old 300 Club and the Bexar County Medical Auxiliary.

She enjoyed playing bridge, traveling, salt-water fishing and deer hunting.

Marjorie loved life, exercising her uncle's polo ponies as a girl, playing pranks on friends, playing gin rummy, bridge and dominoes, and generally sharing her sense of humor and courage (except when it came to snakes!) with others. Her favorite pets throughout her life were always cats. She loved to cook and exchange recipes, and was gracious and friendly whether conversing with ranchers or the Queen of England. She truly had a heart for service, hospitality, and generosity, both toward her loved ones and the community.

She is survived by her children, William Holmes Bohmfalk of San Antonio, Texas and Thomas Charles Bohmfalk and wife Helen of Georgetown, Texas, grandchildren Jennifer Villarreal, Stefani Bohmfalk, Rebecca Price and Matthew Bohmfalk, 7 great grand-children, and many nieces and nephews.

The family wants to especially thank Cleo Bohmfalk for caring for Marjorie in the last months of her life at the Forum.
