Harriet Grant

October 27, 1918 — January 24, 2022

Harriet Ellen Grant, 103, formerly of Back Center Road in Lyndonville, went to be with her Lord on Monday, January 24, 2022.  She resided at the Canterbury Inn over the past 3 years.

Harriet was born on October 27, 1918, in Glover, VT to Wesley and Georgianna (Cloutier) Drew.  She was raised in Glover, went to school at Barton Academy, and graduated from Lyndon Institute, Class of 1936. She married Kenneth Charles Grant, Sr.  For many years, Harriet worked at Lyndon Savings Bank in the Accounting Department.

Harriet loved to share stories about growing up on her family’s roadside zoo in Glover.  She loved animals.  Her tales of Queenie the Bear standing on her hind legs and drinking bottles of “soda” for a nickel, memories of her pet monkeys, Jo Pat and Joco, and racoon named Billy, who lived in the house with the family, brought smiles to the faces of us all.

Harriet enjoyed cooking and took great joy in making incredible meals and baked goods for her family and friends.  She loved spending time with her extended family hosting family dinners and holiday events. Her roast dinners, homemade gravies, chicken pies, rolls, cookies, pies, fudge, and muffins were incredible and always served up with a warm and comforting time together.  She welcomed impromptu visits over a muffin and a coffee.  She was always so genuinely happy to have her family visit that when they knocked on the door she would cheerfully and excitedly respond, “Well, Hello Dear!”.  This brought such joy to her grandchildren that they fondly nicknamed her “Hello Dear.”

Harriet was a positive and joyful person to all that had the pleasure of knowing her.  She had a strong faith.  She always saw the good in people, filled the buckets of others, and left you feeling loved and full of positive energy.

Survivors include her two sons: Kenneth Grant, Jr. of Newark, VT and Gilbert Grant and wife, Lorraine, of Corinth, VT; 7 grandchildren: Kim Roberts and husband, Dave, Tammy Lance and husband, John, Brad Curtis and wife, Julie, Mark Curtis and wife, Emily, Christopher Grant, Casey Grant and wife, Penny, and Jeremy Grant; 11 great-grandchildren: Ashely and Aaron, Cassie and Taylor, Kylie and Maddie, Max, Lily, and Addy, and Jayden and Julia.

She was predeceased by her husband: Kenneth Grant, Sr; a daughter: Theodora “Teddy” Curtis; grandson: Michael Curtis; and siblings: Rolf Drew, Plenty Drew, Gertrude Stimpson, and Hazel Sinclair.

Services will be held at 1PM on Monday, January 31, 2022, at the Lyndonville Congregational Church.  Calling hours will be held from 2-4 PM Sunday, January 30th at the Guibord Funeral Home, 15 Main Street in Lyndonville.
