Harriet J. Gault Freeman

July 22, 1927 – August 3, 2021

Harriet Jean was born to Oral and Mabel Freeman in Seattle but lived her entire life in the Port Angeles/ Sequim area. She witnessed and was part of the history of early Port Angeles. As a ten year old, she watched a parade of cars escort President Franklin D. Roosevelt passed the courthouse, to Lake Crescent. She walked bridges to cross gullies before some of the main streets of Port Angeles were built. Her parents built Freemans Court (now All View) where she helped welcome many visitors to PA.

Graduating from Roosevelt High School in 1945, she followed her mother’s footsteps and became a telephone operator working in Port Angeles and at the Bremerton Naval Station. Coming home, she met and married James Gault. After several years of saving, they bought a 20 acre farm in Sequim, where they raised their four children. She loved baking, gardening and canning and worked hard providing delicious meals and a comfortable home. Later divorcing, she moved to town and continued to garden and enjoy dancing

Surviving are her daughters, Terri (Dave) Thompson of Rochester, WA., Trudi (Alan) Hawley, sons Tom Gault and Jeff (Jeannette) Gault, all of Sequim. She is also survived by six grandchildren, five great grandchildren and her favorite cousin Ruthie Yeaman of Kenmore, Wa.

Preceding her in death was her beloved jitterbug partner of thirty years, Earle Grogan.

A private family gathering is planned.
