August 12, 1942 - September 14, 2021
Harriet passed away Tuesday, September 14, 2021 in Omaha, Nebraska at the age of 79 years. She was born Wednesday, August 12, 1942 in Loup City, Nebraska, where she was raised on the family farm. Harriet was a true farm girl, even learning how to drive a tractor at the age of 9. In grade school, Harriet was a spelling bee champion and in high school won a Betty Crocker Homemaker of Tomorrow Award. After graduating high school, she escaped to Omaha, Nebraska where she attended St. Catherine's Nursing School and became a registered nurse. She practiced nursing for 50 years at Clarkson Hospital, Richard Young, traveling on the bloodmobile with the American Red Cross, and Brookestone Village. She took great pride in being a nurse and influenced many others to go into the profession. Harriet met Rich on a blind date where they attended the rodeo. Rich and Harriet married on May 4, 1963 and had two fantastic children and made a life in South Omaha. They both loved to travel, including an Alaskan cruise and numerous road trips around the country. Harriet was an avid reader, sometimes devouring four or five books a week. She enjoyed sandhill crane watching, was also an expert at crocheting, loved antiquing, and was a long time league bowler. She could sometimes get riled up by a good margarita, but most of all, she deeply loved her family and the accomplishments of her children and grandchildren. Harriet is preceded in death by her parents Louis and Mary Maciejewski; husband Richard Kisicki; brothers James, Dennis, Francis "Sonny" Maciejewski; and sister Angeline Dubas. She is survived by her children Chris (Gloria) Kisicki and Karen Kisicki; grandchildren Angela (Jon) Ecabert, Madeline (Luis Gutierrez) Kisicki, and Olivia Kisicki; great-grandchildren Thiago and Archer; sisters-in-law Nancy Maciejewski, Gladys Maciejewski, Patty (Wally) Karnish, Barbara (Jerry Wollstrum) Olson, Mary Kisicki; brothers-in-law Donald (Patricia) Kisicki, Michael (Carol) Kisicki; and numerous beloved nieces, nephews, and friends. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the American Red Cross.
