Harriett grew up in Lynn, and graduated from Lynn English High School in 1964 and Chandler’s School for Women in 1966. She spent 58 loving years with her husband; the doting affection she received from David was admired by all who knew them. She and her husband raised their daughters in Lynnfield, and created a home filled with enormous love where all of their daughters’ friends were welcomed and considered it their second home. She was a vibrant, compassionate, charitable woman who lit up any room with her smile and positive energy. From her humble beginnings, Harriett was an intelligent, successful and generous businesswoman.
Harriett enjoyed reading, traveling the world with her family and playing Canasta with her close friends at The Addison in Boca Raton, where she served on the board at various times throughout three decades and as its president for two years. She was a remarkable golfer who got four hole-in-ones throughout her playing years as a member of multiple golf courses.
She will be forever missed by her family and friends.
