During her 49-year tenure, the bank changed names numerous times and is now Regions Bank.

Painting was her therapy, and she especially loved painting portraits and water color flowers. Harriette was very generous with her artwork. Many paintings can be found in the homes of her family, friends, local businesses, and auctions for the benefit of her church. She had even won many awards from her entries in state competitions. She loved children and loved doing things for others. She was not only very devoted to her siblings, nieces, nephews, and friends but also to her Catholic faith. Harriette helped countless people become members of the church. She always made herself available to minister to others. For years, she was a Eucharist minister to the sick and shut-ins, administering communion and praying with them.
