Harriet Elaine Willens

Harriet passed away peacefully on Mother's Day, May 13, 2018 at the age of 87, in Fountain Valley. She was born to Ralph and Tillie Mohr in Los Angeles and was the youngest of two sisters. Harriet graduated from Beverly Hills High School and attended UCLA for several years studying to be a teacher. In 1955 Harriet married Spencer Willens and celebrated over 50 years of marriage before his death in 2006. Harriet and Spencer moved to Torrance shortly after they were married where they raised five children. Harriet was a devoted daughter, wife, and mother, a fun Nana to her grandchildren and a great friend. Everyone who met her walked away smiling. Harriet was the definition of a "social butterfly" and enjoyed entertaining friends and family at her homes in Torrance and Idyllwild. Harriet is survived by her children, Douglas, Michael, Damon and Stacey; seven grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, sister, Eleanor, husband, Spencer and son, Donald. Services will be held on May 17, 2018 at 10:00am at Hillside Memorial Park in Los Angeles.
