OBIT HarrietPappas

Harriet Berta Pappas, 83, of Los Altos Hills died peacefully on December 3, 2013. Harriet was born in Cleveland, Ohio, where she attended Fenn College (now Cleveland State University) and there met Robert (Bob) Pappas, her husband of nearly 50 years, who predeceased her last year.

The couple resided in Minneapolis, MN, Waterbury, CT, and Cincinnati, OH before moving to the Bay Area in 1954. Harriet worked in real estate, interior design, retail sales, and most importantly, as a devoted and loving mother, through the years. More recently she was active in the Los Altos Hills Newcomers Club. Harriet is survived by her son, Stephen, granddaughters Sarah and Zoe, and was predeceased by her daughter, Virginia.
