Life Story

Ms. Nettie Jean Harding, 80, passed away on February 15, 2022, at her home in Longview, Texas.

Born on June 13, 1941, in Longview, Texas to the late Brent Dial and Vera Little Dial, she attended Pine Tree public schools and the worked for the Longview Independent School District until her retirement in 2005.

Jean accepted the Lord as her Savior at a young age and attended Grace Creek Church. She enjoyed crossword puzzles, Dallas Cowboys football and Texas Rangers baseball, bingo and dominos, a game she would gladly take you down in. She will be remembered for her smile, sense of humor, her sass, and sometimes forgetting to hang up on long-drawn-out voicemails.

She is preceded in death by her parents and her brother Don Dial.

She is survived by sister and brother-in-law Mary and Jack Driscoll and her nieces and nephews. Ex-husband James Harding, daughter Tammy Howard, daughter Tricia Britton, daughter and son-in-law Sharla Harding and Steven Goad, and daughter and son-in-law Kristy and Stuart Kaufman. She is also survived by 16 grandchildren. Johnny Roddy, Christian, and Krista Howard, Shelby and Clay Mooney, Chloe Jones, Denver Satterwhite, Alaura and Kamden Goad, Trenton Ausmus, Lane Clanton, Blair, Chloe, Mia, and Ledger Kaufman and great-grandson Everett Mooney.

Jean will forever be cherished and remembered by her family who was her greatest joy in life. She always was seen humming, singing, and dancing like no one was watching, and now, she is singing praises and dancing across the clouds with her parents and her Savior. Rest In Peace, Dancing Queen.
