Entry Text

Was sorry to hear of Aunt Harriets passing; She led a Good & full life and now is in Heaven with Uncle Dick. God's Blessings, Kathy & Jerry.

Kathy & Jerry Noteboom 21309 Cabin Rd. Lead, S.Dakota 57754

So sorry to hear of Harriet's passing, she was such a strong lady. I didn't know her until she moved to Kadoka but enjoyed visiting with her and really admired her for her stamina. She could be seen every morning doing her daily long walk around town. She would stop and visit, but not for long as she had to get her walking done!
