Cashmere, WA - Harriet Herrick, 86, died Tuesday at the Cashmere Care Center. Harriet Foulke was born August 3, 1921, in Brookings to John M. and Ruby (Foster) Foulke. During WWII she taught radio at the Sioux Falls Air Base. She married Lloyd Harden on July 7, 1944. On June 24, 1968 she married Carlton Herrick in Worthington, MN, a marriage lasting nearly 25 years. Harriet moved from Sioux Falls to Minnesota to take a promotion with Vanda Cosmetics. She and Carlton later came home to their roots on a South Dakota farm and eventually started raising the Belgian draft horses they loved so much. They took great pride in driving their horses with wagons, farm equipment and a sleigh. Her husband preceded her in death on May 2, 1993. After retiring to Flandreau, she continued her lifelong love of Quilting, making nearly 200 Quilt tops for a church group and one Quilt that took first place at the SD State Fair. She took care of "old people" who were often younger than herself and cooked at the Flandreau Senior Citizen Center. She was a member of First Baptist Church and Prairie Hills Covenant Church in Sioux Falls, the United Methodist Church in Flandreau, the Sioux Falls Jaycettes, the Odd Fellows' Rebecca's, and was an officer for the Flandreau Senior Citizens. She was elected clerk of her township board and she enthusiastically supported Boy Scout and Girl Scout organizations. She is survived by three sons, Lyle (Mary) Harden, Marion, NC; Vern Harden, Entiat, WA; Lynn (Tracy) Harden, Yakima, WA; two daughters, Lucille (Bruce) Middleton, Sioux Falls, and Laura (Ed) Thompson, Moberly, MO; eight grandchildren, Kelly, Earl, Erik, Tina, Tanya, Michael, Aubrey, and Sabrina; eight great-grandchildren, nine step-children, and over 60 step-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren.
