I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course and I have kept the faith.      2nd Timothy 4:7a Homegoing Celebration for the Life of Deaconess Dorothy M. Hardison will be held at 10:30a.m. on Saturday, August 7, 2021, at Greater Live Oak Missionary Baptist Church, 1401 Fenner Street, Alexandria, LA.  Dr. James S. Hardison, Sr., Pastor will be officiating.  Interment will be in Garden of Memories Cemetery.  On January 9, 1953, a beautiful daughter as born to the union of Rubbie and Albert Green, Sr. in Pineville, LA.  On Monday morning, August 2, 2021, at 12:30a.m. God took his early morning stroll through his rose garden and plucked from it one of Heaven’s finest servants and with divine assistance from the Holy Spirit, transported her to her new mansion beyond the sky.  Dorothy was a faithful disciple of the Greater Live Oak Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of her husband for the past 43 years, but also served as musician for the church for 38 years.  She also served in her church as President of the Deaconess Ministry, wrier of V.B.C.

Hardison, Sr., two daughters: Machelle Delain Hardison and Yvonne Hawkins, both of Alexandria, LA, God daughter: Brenda Samuel of Alexandria, LA, three sons: James S.
