I don't know most of you since I moved out of state in 1965. Aunt Harriet was the sole survivor of dad's family that obviously leaves a big hole now. I'll always remember her for her sweet spirit and yummy cinnamon rolls. Lovingly, her niece, Janet (Rosio) Schoblaska
i will forever remember the many visits to her home as we talked about our wonderful Saviors love for us , and had many pieces of her delious pies ....she was a great friend to me my prayers are with the family ,,and friends ,,,
It was so many years ago when my family came to know Harriet and Woodrow and their large family. Mostly, I remember Gary. Phillip and Barbara as they were my peers. However, i remember Harriet's many kindnesses to my family and how she and her family helped acclimate us to Wisconsin winters -- they helped us to appreciate snow and ice activities. Harriet and Mom were great friends at the time. On behalf of the Hammond family, I wish you Godspeed, Harriet, and eternal rest in His loving embrace. Barbara Hilb (née Hammond).
Aunt Harriett always put a smile on my face. Her hug's I will always remember. When my mom,dad and other syblings would go for a visit.. food there always was on the table. And yes games around the table..
Even with my children Joe and Cassy she left lasting memories.. baking pies and telling her stories...
I praise the Lord for the chances I had to be in her life.
I will miss her.. and my prayers are with her children.. love all.
I love you and will miss you Aunt Harriet.more than half of my childhood was spent at your home. I would sometimes spend the night with the girls, would come down and borrow your books, pick a bag of green apples to take home to eat while reading the books I borrowed. the many nights I came down and played game with you and Uncle Woodrow at the kitchen table, eating pie and your pastries. the phone would ring and you would say, it's your Mom wondering when you are coming home, I would run all the way home in the dark. there was always something going on at your house. I loved it. you were like a second Mom. after I was married, and I was 6 months pregnant I came down you all hooked the horse up to the stone boat? you stuffed me into your snowmobile suit helped me on to the sled we took off, only to roll off into a snow bank. laughing so hard and had to have help to get back on. there is so much more but you have made it. give Uncle Woodrow and Momma and Daddy a big hug for me . won't be too long, will see you all. love you so much . thank you for all the wonderful memories. your loving niece. Phyllis
I am so sorry to hear of Harriet's passing. She always had a hug and a smile for me whenever we happened to see each other, and I enjoyed our conversations so much. Know that I will be praying for all of you. May God give you peace and comfort.
My sincerest apologies my opening salutations I meant to say "God bless". Not sure how I errored but please forgive me.
God you Mrs. Maddix and your very large extended family. You have certainly left a beautiful legacy on earth with your children, grand children, great grand children and great great grand children. I was fortunate to go to school with your grandchildren at White Lake High School. I am sure I enjoyed some of your homemade pies at 4- corners resteraunt or at the Elton Days on Labor Day Weekend. Thank you for your community services.
