Harriett May Christensen, 76, has left to be with “Daddy.”
She passed away in Spokane on Dec. 8, 2012 after fighting back to health many times in the last few years.
As a young adult, she lived in Spokane until 1969 when the family moved to Moses Lake. Harriett, or Hattie to some, was full of spunk and energy. She was always busy crafting and sewing, cooking or volunteering.
During the many years in Moses Lake, Harriet worked as a Mary Kay Representative, property manager, and then found work that drew on her passion for all animals, managing the Grant County Animal Shelter. She and husband Bob both worked for the Moses Lake Senior Center.
At the passing of her soul mate, she moved in with her youngest son, Wayne. During the last couple years of her life, she resided with her daughter and family in Summit Valley. She truly enjoyed the country setting and the many white tail deer she shared the property with.
Harriett was born in Hollister, CA. on Sept. 26, 1936. She married Robert Christensen on Sept. 14, 1959. They were happily married until his passing in April 2009.
Harriett is survived by her two daughters (Cora and Linda) and two sons (Robert and Wayne); two stepchildren Crystal and Bob, along with several grandchildren and great grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held at the Senior Center in Moses Lake on Saturday, Jan. 19 at 1 p.m. Come help us celebrate the life of our beloved mom. A reception will follow the service.
