Betty Harriman

February 11, 1929 — September 15, 2022


Betty J. Harriman, age 93, of Fenwick, passed away at her home on Thursday, September 15, 2022, under the loving care of her family and Spectrum Hospice. 

Betty was the 7th in a line of 10 children and was the final member to pass away.  Her marriage to Dick was a true love story of 73 years, with 71 of them being spent on the family farm.  She instilled a strong work ethic along with a family first philosophy.  She believed in celebrating life’s high moments with family dinners, extensive traveling, square dancing, golf, and camping.  One trait of Betty which was enjoyed and appreciated by everyone was her genuine interest in people, being a good listener, and cheering you on when you needed it and supporting each and every victory, whether big or small.

Surviving Betty is her husband, Richard Harriman; daughter, Sally (Dale) Huizenga of Newaygo; sons, Terry Harriman of Fenwick, Gary (Connie) Harriman of Mecosta, Eddy (Joan) Harriman of Ada; grandchildren, Rich (Mary) Harriman of Grand Rapids, Carrie (Justin) Weger of Greenville, Kelly Harriman (Vince Thompson) of Cedar Springs, Nicole (Clint) Parris of Nashville, Tennessee, Hannah Harriman of Marquette, Megan (James) Cain of Big Rapids, Angela (Joel) Huizenga of Marne, Rachel Harriman of Parnell, Reneé (Will) Bryan of Allendale, Theresa (Zachary) Carrasco of Norton Shores, Sarah (James) Jones of Nashville, Michigan; great grandchildren, Alex, Katelyn, Lexi, Melissa, Isaac, Bryce, Betty, Tygra, Jocelyn, Michael, Erica, Malaki, McKayla, Leigha, Lizzy, and Evan; and many nieces and nephews.

Betty was preceded in death by her parents, Leslie & Mildred (Hoyt) Sherd; grandson, Brett Harriman; sisters, Velma Townsend and Dorothy Field; brothers, Marshall Sherd, Robert Sherd, Harold Sherd, Gerald Sherd, Duane Sherd, Ronald Sherd, and Harland Sherd.

A celebration of Betty’s life is being planned for a later date.
