Harriet Anderson Tuesday, February 25, 1936 - Sunday, July 9, 2017
Harriet Anderson passed away at 81 on July 9, 2017 following a year long battle with pancreatic cancer. Her love of life was only surpassed by her love of family. She was born in New York City to Sylvia and John Hindes and moved to Livermore California at the age of 14. Harriet graduated from the University of California Berkeley (57), where she was a member of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority. Harriet married Robert Anderson in San Francisco in 1958, where they became the proud parents of four loving children. Harriet and Bob settled in Moraga California in 1960. She is survived by her loving husband Robert (Bob), Susan Larkin (Pat), Stephen Anderson (Marie), Sylvia Ames (Pat) and was pre-deceased by daughter Mary Yoklavich (Rob). Harriet loved bragging about her 12 grandchildren, Katie (Bunzel), Michael and Brigid Larkin; Stephen, Mary and Bobby Anderson; Emily, Mathew and Benjamin Yoklavich; Ryan, Lauren and Ferne Ames. The family wishes to acknowledge her friends and relatives who are too numerous to mention. We appreciate your kind words, prayers and support. Harriet was at peace with God and often spoke of reuniting with her daughter Mary. Funeral services will be held on Monday, July 17, 2017 at 10:30 AM at Saint Monica Church, 1001 Camino Pablo in Moraga. Private burial services will be held July 18, 2017 in Livermore, California.
