Harriet was born in 1891. She passed away in 1955. Her daughter Wilma wrote the following about her mother whilst researching her ancestry. My mother, I have been toldwas the one member of the family who always seemed to benursing the sick. She cared for her mother while ill, living at home,never worked outside of home-duties. My fathers father also lived with my family in his later years, and mum looked after him. Also my fathers brother. I believe she was a wonderful person and her strength of character showed, when over a period of 4 years (1930-1934) she was operated on by Dr Edward Dunlop at the Alfred Hospital 9 times to remove cancerous growths. She recovered and lived another 30 years to the age of 64, when her cancer reoccurred.
