Kinser and Yoder family. I grew up next door to Harriet and George and cleaned the house each year before big family events. I think she had me do this so I could make a little spending money. Harriet was always so kind to the kids in the neighborhood. They had bonfire's for us during the summer and she always made sure to have a popcorn ball for us on Halloween. Even after I grew up if I would run into her she always had a hug for me. I know the Hervey kids have a special place in their hearts for this wonderful lady. My thoughts go out to all of you.

Harriet was a long time friend & will be missed. She was also a member of Wellman AD T.T.T. Society and also an avid supporter and charter member of Wellman Heritage Society. Harriet was very instrumental in providing household displays for the Wellman Heritage Museum. Her legacy will definitely live on at the Museum. I never heard her say an unkind thing about anyone. I will miss her sweet smile!
