Harriet was someone who challenged me in the most profound way - to be willing to accept her open and enthusiastic acceptance of me. She knew exactly what I needed and gave it to me - a wonderful woman.
My condolences to Harriet's family. I was fortunate to have known Harriet as she served on my dissertation committee at Virginia Tech. Like many other students, I was fortunate to have benefitted from her insightfulness, her sensitivity, and her support. I am truly saddened.
I met Harriet in 1980. She had the unique and wonderful gift of being a charismatic leader. As a friend, she was high energy, loyal and fun. As a colleague, she was comprehensive and smart. A great analytic thinker. I will miss her grace and the laughter. Peace and love.
I had the great fortune to work with Harriet through JMU and later she served on my dissertation committee at VA Tech circa 1990. To say that she made a positive impact on my life is an understatement - she will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.
I had the pleasure of working with Harriet during the development of the Virginia Tech/JMU doctoral program many years ago. She has always been a dedicated professional and one who was wonderful with which to work. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
I met her in graduate school and she influenced my life in many ways. I am truly saddened by her death.
Harriet will be missed by many, both personally and professionally. She was an outstanding contributor to the field of psychology through her work and the way she lived her life.
Harriet touched the lives of many. Her wit, intellect, insight and kindness made her one in a million. It is hard to imagine JMU without her radiant smile and guidance. May peace be with her and all who loved her now.
Thank you for the many years of dedicated service you gave to JMU, the students, the field of school psychology,and your many friends.
With deep sadness I send condolences to Dr. Harriet Cobb's family. May you find peace and comfort in knowing that Harriet encouraged and inspired so many people. I will always remember Harriet for her kindness and the way she accepted me where I was at and allowed me to grow. I will miss Harriet, and at the same time I will always remember her bright smile and her energy. I pray she rests in peace.
Harriet was a genuinely sweet and compassionate person. She had a significant impact on my life and I will miss her dearly.
If it weren't for Harriet, I am not sure I would still be alive today. She saved me and I thank her for her kindness and how much she cared.
I was so deeply fortunate to have Dr. Cobb as a professor and mentor though my years in training at JMU in the field of Psychology (Masters /Ed.S 84-87; PsyD. 94-97). It was difficult not to love Harriet Cobb the person and her passing leaves me with deep pain and heartfelt grief.
Thank you for your kind spirit
