Birth: Feb. 4, 1906
Indiana, USA
Death: Sep. 14, 1988
North Manchester
Wabash County
Indiana, USA

Mrs. Harshbarger taught math at Avon High School for many years. Students thought she was strict but also appreciated her ability to teach. She was focused on making us as good at math as we could possibly be.

She will always be fondly remembered by those of us who were in one of her classes.

Her obituary from The News-Journal published in North Manchester, Indiana, on September 15, 1988:

Retired from teaching in central Indiana after 29 years, Olive Harshbarger, 82, Timbercrest Church of the Brethren Home, died Wednesday, September 14, 1988, at 4:30 a.m. at Timbercrest Health Care. She was born February 4, 1906 to Mrs. Cleo Shambaugh Schultz. She married Albert E. Harshbarger August 22, 1931 and he survives at Timbercrest. She was a member of the Manchester Church of the Brethren.

Also surviving are two sons, Richard Harshbarger, North Manchester, and William Harshbarger, San Jose, California; one brother, Zeno Schultz, Akron [Indiana]; one sister, Mary Elizabeth Jaurique, Texas, and five grandchildren.

Services will be Saturday, September 17, 10:30 a.m. at Timbercrest Chapel, burial at Pleasant Hill Cemetery, Rev. David Bowman and Rev. Timothy McElwee officiating. Calling hours will be 7 - 9 p.m. and one hour prior to services at Timbercrest Chapel. Memorial contributions to Manchester Church of the Brethren and the Indiana State Retired Teachers Association. Arrangements by DeLaughter Mortuary.
