She worked with the church’s catering group and organized many dinners for holidays and celebrations. She was employed by Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company.

Harriet moved between Florida and Lake Hortonia, Vermont for many years and enjoyed the company of her family at the lake before settling in Bar Harbor in 2007.

Six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Harriet was predeceased by her husband, Dwight and two siblings, Cynthia and Harrison.

At her request, a small private service will be held for immediate family only. Donations may be made to the Bar Harbor Food Pantry, Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County or Wintonbury Historical Society. Cards may be sent to the family at PO Box 658, Mt. Desert, ME 04660.
