Harriet was a member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church where she was a member of the Christian Mothers. She enjoyed traveling, cooking, and baking, but most of all she enjoyed spending time with her family.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Charles on Dec. 30, 1989; and 4 siblings, Marcella Laudenbach, Ray, Leonard and Clarence Schill.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at The Legends at Heritage Place Memory Care Unit and St. Cloud Hospital Hospice for the wonderful care they provided Harriet in her final days.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to the Poor Clare's Monastery, Sauk Rapids.
