Born August 24, 1922 Harriet was one of eleven children born to Harry and Frances Woodward. She met her future husband at God's Bible School in Cincinnati, OH. Known for her delicious cakes, you could almost always find Harriet in the kitchen. Many of her children and grandchildren continue to use her recipes. She was also always canning and freezing many of the fresh vegetables that she and Clinton grew on their farm. After seventy years of marriage, five children, eleven grandchildren, twenty great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren she once again joined her sweetheart with the Lord. She will be greatly missed and we will always have fond loving memories.
