  1. Dear Mike;
    Sorry to hear of your loss…sorry it took me until January 5th to find out my Grandmother had passed away and therefore hope you will forgive the tardiness of this condolence. I managed to find out through a contact that attends a ladies auxillary meeting at the VFW in Hardin. I then looked up the archived obituaries on the internet and found that indeed my Grandmother had passed away and that arrangements had already been made and finalized.I wish you and yours sincere sympathy and hope your grief with be shortened by happy memories of your Mother…my Grandmother.
    With Sympathy,
    Lara L. McHenry

  2. “Harry Rat” was dearly loved by the Matovich family, especially Mary Lou. Harriett had a wit that made them fast friends. Mom was pregnant with me and Harriett was pregnant with Pat when the two families shared a duplex in Hardin. Harriett said Pat was born early because she had a fire in the kitchen and got burned. It sounds tragic, but she could make any story funny. What a fun lady! Dawn & I are grateful that Harriett kept in touch all these years and considered us family. We remember fondly her grandmother, Nanny who used to babysit us. What a great family! God bless all the relatives Harriett’s left behind. Love and miss you, “Bunny Rabbit”

  3. I have known Harriett all my life and my mother was a very dear friend of hers. I got to speak with her at length after Thanksgiving this year and she was full of stories of how much love there was in her great family and how the “guys” just passed her from one to another like a baby doll at Thanksgiving and made her feel so special. I did not do a good job of remembering all the names of the folks in her life when we spoke, but there was no denying she felt loved completely. Thank you from my family to all of yours. It was a true blessing to have connected with Harriett’s family and with her in some small the day she died. Sincerely, Dawn (Dawnarie)

  4. Dear Mike and Chris
    Yesterday, I took our two boys Kelby and Bryant (14 & 9) snowboarding at Red Lodge. As we drove through Roberts, I thought about you as I have not been up in that country for some time. We stopped in the Magpie Toy Shop afterwards and as we were looking at all the games I saw a “canasta” card game, and I thought “gee thats one of ‘old’.
    I was telling Larry about all this and remarked remembering all the “canasta” card parties my folks use to have at the ranch. Then reading the paper, sad, a very nice article and picture of Harriet. I’m so sorry. Your mom was a good friend of my moms and that “crew ” had many good times together or at least it seemed to me at the time, as I was fairly young then. I must have been in the 7th or 8th grade and ‘Pat’ was the first boy I ever went to the show (Harriet Theatre) with. What a kick that was! Time goes by so quickly. Shane passed away from stomach cancer September 29th, 2004 and it broke my heart, I miss him , you know we were the Mutt and Jeff growing up together.
    His ex passed away from cancer also in January of 2004, so de’javu his daughter and son lost both parents in a year. Monica graduated from Billings West this Spring, and Brenton is living in Boise, Idaho with Joanne’s sister Sherri. I typed this once but I don’t see it on the computer, so I’m trying for the second time-. Again, I’m sorry for your loss, and hope to see you this summer.(?)
    Take Care, Susie Forney
