Harriett Langdon Obituary
Langdon, Harriett,

died September 5, 2017 in Louisville, KY after a brief illness.

Harriett is survived by her devoted husband Ralph Langdon; children Dean Langdon (Beth Hellebusch), Greg Langdon, and LeeAnn Langdon (Patrick Baker); grandson Zachary Langdon; and siblings Despina Ksidakis and Emmanuel Bikakis.

Harriett was born October 3, 1929 in Sioux City, Iowa and was high school valedictorian, and the first in her family to attend college, graduating from Morningside College.

Harriett met her husband, Ralph, at the Sioux City Air Force base during the Korean War, and they were married November 13, 1955 at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox church in Sioux City.

Harriett worked as a substitute teacher for the Jefferson County School District while her children were young, and in 1980 she began working as an administrative assistant and editor for the Department of Surgery at University of Louisville Medical School, until her retirement in 2001.

Harriett was a long-time member and past president of the Greater Louisville Celiac Society. Harriett and Ralph were members of a Love Circle group for over 20 years, where they have made many lifelong friendships. Her spirit lives on in the people she touched during her life, and she'll be remembered with love by a wide circle of family and friends.

Funeral Service 10 am Tuesday at Pearson's, 149 Breckenridge Lane, with private burial in Cave Hill Cemetery. Visitation 4-7 pm Monday.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to support the Baptist Hospital East Palliative Care Unit, or the Celiac Disease Foundation.
