Deborah (Debbie) Newcomb Hardy, age 66, passed peacefully to be with her Savior Jesus Christ on May 12, 2021 at Lehigh Valley Hospital after a courageous fight against COVID-19. In the end, Debbie’s heart was just too big.
Debbie was born to Rowland and Doris (Wrigley) Newcomb in Abington, PA. Debbie grew up in Hatboro, a place she loved. Debbie was the middle sister of five children. Debbie married John Hardy and they lived in Warrington, PA. They celebrated 47 years of marriage in September. Debbie recently moved to Barto, PA with John to enjoy her retirement and grandchildren.
Debbie attended Philmont Christian Academy. She served her family and community as a Warrington Township Supervisor and also worked in various Accounts Payable rolls. Debbie was very active in her church and community. She loved her friends at Calvary Chapel Quakertown and Trinity UCC Mount Penn, and her newfound friends in the Barto area.
Debbie was a ray of sunshine and the life of the party to her friends and family. She had a heart of gold. She loved the beach, convertible car rides, pets, activism, and most of all her God and family – Debbie was her happiest when family was present. She will be profoundly missed.
Survivors with Debbie’s husband John include Debbie’s brother Stephen Newcomb, sister Rebecca Haegele (Mark), son James Hardy (Jennifer), son Benjamin Hardy (Esther), their children Titus (7), Maisy (5), Clara (4) & Heath (15 months), daughter Stacey Pietrowski (Christopher), and their children Emily (8), Ethan (6) and Ella (14 months). We must also mention her beloved beagle Schroeder and cat Linus.
In lieu of flowers, it would bring Debbie joy to have life celebrated and cherished with donations made to Crossroads Pregnancy Center in Quakertown.
A memorial service will be held for Debbie at Calvary Chapel Quakertown, 347 New St, Quakertown, PA on Monday, May 17, 2021 at 7PM. Visitation with the family will be held prior to the service beginning at 5:30 PM till 6:45PM.
Debbie’s family will be holding a celebration of Debbie’s life on June 12, 2021. Details will be provided.
We would like to express our gratitude to all the courageous doctors and nurses who tirelessly fight COVID-19 in the ICU at Lehigh Valley Cedar Crest and for their loving care of our Debbie.
