We were so sorry to hear of Harriet’s passing. The last time I saw her was when we visited her at the Westminster Health Center over a year ago and played Mah Jong. We, the Mah Jong group, enjoyed playing with Harriet - a very shrewd player and wonderful hostess. I interacted often with Harriet over the years through Temple and Sisterhood. She was alway warm and welcoming as well as a superb cook and dependable helper whenever asked. I remember how proud she was of her family and kept us up on their various achievements. She will so very missed by all of us.

I was so sorry to learn this sad news. Harriet was a good friend and my "back fence" neighbor all our West Lafayette years! Our kids grew up together, largely in our backyards. Harriet was a great cook and baker. Not only was she willing to share her recipes, she was also willing to give lessons on "how to," though my Apple Tea rings never looked as elegant as hers! Harriet was also a generous and active member of Hadassah. She hosted Youth Aliyah cocktail parties in her lovely home. She researched how to cook pasta for large crowds and made some for a Hadassah fund raiser dinner. She was warm and caring and will be greatly missed! May her memory be for a blessing. My love and condolences to all the Morrisons.

Sweet Harriett, you were the first person I met when I moved to our complex in Florida. We sat by the pool and chatted, discovering we had a connection through your nephew in Massachusetts. You were, and always will be, one of my favorite people-a sweet, funny, intelligent, kind woman. You and Harry always made Eddie and me feel special, whatever we did together fun and interesting. I miss you and will always love you.
