Harriet Smith

Former Riverhead resident Harriet Smith of Lost Lakes Community in Cocoa, Fla., passed away Oct. 2, 2014, at Palm Cottages Assisted Living Facility in Rockledge, Fla. She was 102.

Harriet moved to Cocoa in 2006 to live with her daughter Marcia and Marcia’s husband, Ronald Bozuhoski.

She is also survived by her daughters Shirley Marrero (Angelo) of Port Jefferson Station and Karen Jarzombek (the late Charles) of Baiting Hollow.

Harriet owned and operated Art’s Delicatessen on East Main Street in Riverhead with her husband, Arthur P. Smith. Later, she worked for W.T. Grant Co. and Woolco on Route 58 in Riverhead.

Harriet has seven grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren that she loved dearly. She enjoyed gardening, cooking (especially making Christmas cookies with her great-granddaughters), shopping and playing Lotto.

Our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother will be greatly missed. A memorial church service will be held at Riverhead Methodist Church on Saturday, Nov. 8, at 10 a.m. Harriet’s final resting place will be at Riverhead Cemetery with her husband, who predeceased her in August 1964.
