Dian Sue Hardin, 71, of Stillwater, OK passed away peacefully on June 17, 2021 surrounded by her loving family. A Celebration of Life will begin at 10:30 am on Wednesday, June 23 at Strode Funeral Home, 610 S. Duncan, Stillwater, OK and will be live-streamed from her personal obituary page at

Dian was born on December 8, 1949 in Cherokee, OK to Elgin and Ima Jean Thomas. She graduated Cleveland High School in 1968, was a cheerleader and directly after high school she continued her education in business. She met the love of her life, Don Alan Hardin in 1969 and they married on November 22, 1970. Dian then became a Military wife visiting Don in Japan during Vietnam times. Their first home was in Georgia where they started their family and they birthed their first child, Tara Jean, on September 1,1973. Not long after they moved to their hometown of Stillwater where they birthed their 2nd daughter, Tracy Dawn in 1978. Dian started her lifelong career in banking at Stillwater National Bank where she eventually retired at age 62 after rising to the position of Assistant VP,

She loved drinking her coffee while watching TV, loved working in the yard, refinishing furniture, cross stitching and collecting antiques. She also enjoyed her special circle of luncheon friends - you know who you are! But… she was most proud of being an Oma to her 6 grandchildren. She never hesitated to listen and will always be remembered as selfless, kind and soft hearted.

She was loved and will be missed greatly by all those who knew her sweet, beautiful spirit.

She was preceded in death by parents, Elgin and Ima Jean Thomas, her daughter Tara Jean Owen, and sister-in-law Huguette Thomas.

She is survived by her husband of 51 years, Don Hardin; step mother Vonta Thomas; daughter Tracy and her husband Justin Stephenson of Kingfisher OK; her brother Doug Thomas of Altus, OK; grandchildren Cailie and Talie Owen, Cade, Ally, Carter, and Cru Stephenson. Also survived by numerous cousins, aunts, nieces, and nephews, and brothers and sisters-in-law.
