Delia Ward Hargis

Delia Ward Hargis died Sunday, Aug. 18, 2013, in Fort Worth.

Service is 1 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28, at White’s Funeral Home, in Springtown, with Pastor Kemper Huber officiating. Interment will follow at Springtown Cemetery. Visitation is 6-8 p.m. Tuesday at the funeral home.

She was born Feb. 27, 1929, to Verna Mae Roberson and Herschal Spencer “Pete” Ward in Bailey, Texas. She married her high school sweetheart, Garland Hargis, on Feb. 20, 1948. They celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary this past spring.

Mrs. Hargis worked at the Fort Worth National Bank and was a loyal and valued employee there for more than 40 years. She and her husband participated in a square dance club for many years. She also was a member of the Meadowbrook Wranglers, riding in “play days” on her horse, Honey Boy. Later, she was an avid spectator, watching their daughter, Delinda, and then grandson, Parker, ride. She was an active member of the American Association of Sheriff Posses and Riding Clubs, serving as secretary in that organization.

The center of Mrs. Hargis’ life was her family and she most enjoyed being a wife, mother and grandmother. A favorite pastime was visiting with friends and family members, recalling stories of growing up in “Sam Rayburn” country in northeast Texas.

Survivors include her husband, Garland Hargis, of Weatherford; daughter and son-in-law, Delinda and Melvin Cantrell and grandson, Parker Cantrell, of Weatherford; brothers, Charles and Barbara Ward, of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and John and Cissy Ward, of Longview; and several cousins, nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews.

Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society, 330 West Freeway, Fort Worth, TX 76107.
