Harriette Sklar, whose warmth turned brief encounters into lasting friendships, passed away June 9, 2014, in Denver. She was 90. Rabbi Isaac Wasserman and Cantor Joel Lichterman officiated at the June 11 graveside service at Emanuel Cemetery. Feldman Mortuary made the arrangements.
“Harriette collected people like some people collect stamps,” says her daughter Andrea Hyatt. “She had a knack for drawing them in while also drawing them out, and made people feel at home in her presence.
“She was a woman of refinement, a classy lady with an elegance and a style all her own; a wise woman whose priorities were always in the right place; a woman of strength and determination, with a clear sense of her values.
