Condolence: My deepest condolences to Harriet's much loved family and friends. I will fondly remember Harriet as an amazing librarian, educator, and good friend. Our annual Mad Hatter Tea at Maxwell House and occasional visits to Second Story Theatre are sweet memories. Harriet will be remembered for her love of learning, family, and community. May she rest in God's Eternal Love and Peace. 🙏🏼❤🕊😇

Condolence: I am sad to read that Harriette passed away. For over 30 years, I looked forward to meeting with Harriette to help her with her taxes; we became “once-a-year” friends sharing pleasant conversation. She often bragged that she had the best family and they were always there to support her. She spoke of her nieces and nephews as if they were her own children. Less than a month ago I ran into her and some of her family at Blithewold…now she is no longer with us…so sad. Please accept my most sincere sympathies on the death of your loved one.

Condolence: I met Harriet in a workshop on creativity three years ago. Her friendliness and open heart touched me and we became friends, sharing laughs and creative moments together. She helped me to see life through her open and accepting perspective. Her excitement was contagious. There is an empty spot in my life now that she is gone.

Condolence: I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of my colleague and friend Harriet. Harriet and I worked together for over 8 years at Colt Andrews Elementary School. She motivated children and helped them develop a love for reading. I am glad I had the opportunity to work with such an inspiring library media specialist. She is a great loss to all the people who knew her. May her soul rest in peace.
