Lampert, Harriet Genevieve 90 passed away June 14, 2020. She was born in Holdingford to Charles and Gertrude Young, the second youngest of seven children. She met George and they married in 1948, and purchased what they called the Beer Joint in Upsala, serving drinks and food to the local community. The two of them moved often after coming to the Minneapolis area and also spent 10 years in Denver. Many weekends were spent dancing to polkas or playing cards with friends. With her dad living to be 110 years old, she helped plan many large family gatherings. She took great pride in the cleanliness of her home, friends joked that you could eat off of the floor and she wore dust mops on her feet. Mom made friends wherever she went, including the cabin at the lake and when she led senior water aerobics at the YMCA. When the grandkids arrived in her life, she loved to make them cookies and always had some ready. She battled her dementia which was diagnosed in 2016. It was during the past year that the disease took control over her life. Harriet received the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick from an Archdiocese priest. He said she was smiling while receiving the sacrament. She is no longer suffering and back with George in heaven. She touched the hearts of many and will be missed by all who knew her. Preceded in death by husband, George Lampert; and son-in-law, Daniel Freeborn. Survived by children, Michael (Kathryn) Lampert, Jean Mason, and Patricia Freeborn; grandchildren, Brianna (Nate), Nicholas (Sara), Peter (Breanna) and Joseph; great-grandchildren, Evan, Wyatt, Analeigh, Jolene, Adaline Rae and Keegan; and brother, Oliver Young.
