Obituary for Harriet Burnham

Harriet  Burnham
Harriet (Karr) Burnham, of Westford, died March 19, 2018 at the age of 96. A wonderful woman, a great mother and grandmother she has given all of us great memories that will last forever.

A lifelong Vermonter, Harriet was born on July 20, 1921 in West Burke to Walter and Eva Gould. She had two sisters Lois (Putnam) and Evelyn (Porter) who have pre-deceased her. She was a nurse: graduating from Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital Class of 1943. She put those skills to good use throughout her life: Ingalls 4-H Camp, Green Mountain Nursing Home, Converse Home for Women, The Rocking Chair, Westford Elementary School, Westford Town Health Officer, and retiring from Thomas Chittenden Health Center.

Harriet lived most of her life in Westford. She married Quentin S. Karr and for 45 years they made a good life for themselves and their children. Quentin died in 1990. She was fortunate to find love a second time with A. Clayton Burnham and they had 14 happy years together until his death in 2008.

Harriet is survived by her children--Kareen Perry, Linda Karr, Mary Jean Karr (& wife Clair Dunn), Quentin Karr, Jr. (& wife Marlene Karr), and grandchildren—Matthew (& wife Amy), Will, Charlie, Aaron, Lindsay (& husband Todd), Stephanie (& husband Kyle) and 6 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her step-son Eric Burnham (& his wife Barbara). Harriet's much loved son-in-law James Perry died in 2014.

For the last few years Harriet has lived at The Residence at Shelburne Bay. During those years there were numerous staff members who were just wonderful! Thanks to everyone who took such good care of her.

Services will be held on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at 1 pm, at United Church of Fairfax with reception to follow. Inurnment will be private and at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Vermont Foodbank, 33 Parker Rd, Barre, VT, 05641-9106. The family invites you to share your memories by visiting
