She graduated from Gorton High School in Yonkers and from Southern Seminary and Junior College in Buena Vista, Virginia. She was married to Carlton P. Weidenthal on April 17, 1954 in Yonkers.

Harriett was the quintessential Army wife supporting her husband in his career and her children through many relocations stateside and overseas.  She had a passion for entertaining and was known for her grace and charm. Harriett was a loving wife, a devoted mother, an uplifting friend to many, and will be sorely missed.

Harriett is survived by her three children, Kurt Weidenthal II (Susan) of Madison, AL; Corinne Weidenthal (David Smith) of Alexandria, VA; and Carol Weidenthal of Croton-on-Hudson, NY.

She will be interred at the Arlington National Cemetery following a memorial service at a later date.  Memorial contributions may be made to Capital Caring, Halquist Memorial Inpatient Center, 4715 15th Street North, Arlington, VA 22205 or, which is a hospice and palliative care organization that cared so compassionately for her and her family.
