Susan K. “Susie” Hardin, 63, of 11746 Bay Road, Wapakoneta, died 5:35 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012, at St. Ritas Medical Center, Lima, following a short battle with cancer.
She was born April 14, 1949, in Mercer County, the daughter of Carol (Lehman) and George Whitehead.
She married Mickael Hardin on April 20, 1968, and he survives at the residence.
To honor a late Wapakoneta Middle School teacher, students and staff can wear sweats to school on Friday.
To honor her community service and to be able to wear those sweats, students need to donate a canned good while staff and administration have been challenged to donate five canned goods or $5 — all of which will be given to God’s Storehouse.
An injured kitten was brought to a local shelter in hopes to help it survive.
The Auglaize County Humane Society was recently brought a domestic medium-hair 10-week kitten by three young volunteers who found the animal near a home that had been burnt by a house fire on McBeth Rd.
The kitten, Ember, is a female, and needs a surgery to fix an infection in her eye from spreading.
Auglaize County Humane Society Office Manager Miranda Oden said Dr. Virgil Brown, of Mouton Veterinary Clinic, quoted the surgery to cost $300.
NEW BREMEN — Last year was a breakthrough year for the United Way of Auglaize County, which exceeded its campaign goal for the first time in more than a decade, and that success came when community members joined together to make Auglaize County a better place for everyone.
