Harriet always loved God in everything she did. She was very proud of her Jewish heritage and played the role of the Jewish Mother quite well.
Harriet had the biggest heart she would give you the shirt of her back, the last meal in her refrigerator or the last dollar in her wallet. Harriet had a way about her where you felt like you were the most important person in the world every time you were around her. One of Harriet’s passions were animals, dogs, cats, guinea pigs, rats, etc., she ALWAYS had a spot of them in her home. Harriet loved all music and baseball.
Harriet was the best Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Cousin and FRIEND to those that came into her path. Harriet has left quite a legacy to all of those she has left behind. Her family now has a new angel to watch over them, until we meet again.
