In Loving Memory of Harriet A. Malinowski
1946 – 2023
Harriet Ann Malinowski, wife of the late John Malinowski of Miramichi, New Brunswick passed away peacefully on October 5, 2023, at the age of 76.
Born in Chatham, NB, on December 31, 1946, she was the daughter of the late John and Isabelle (McEachern) Currie. She was a member of Saint Andrew’s Catholic Church and then later St. Michael’s Basilica.
Harriet is survived by her daughter, Michelle (Nick Bye) of Calgary, Alberta; her son Jon (Gail McDonald) of Nolensville, Tennessee; her three grandchildren: Olivia Darling, Luke Darling, and Ethan Malinowski; her sister, Beth Currie (Robert Massoud) of Toronto, ON; and her brother, John Currie (Mary Lou) of Fredericton, NB. She was predeceased by her parents; husband, John Malinowski; and sister, Ellen Hastie.
Harriet met the love of her life in Chatham NB, and they relocated to Wabush, Labrador where they lived for 24 years and raised their family. They then explored the world living in Africa and Indonesia for several years but returned home to Miramichi to retire. Harriet was the most amazing storyteller and loved to share her experiences and adventures with those that knew her - she made you feel as if you were there with her on her journey. She was gracious and kind with always a positive outlook and very strong faith. Harriet was gentle and calm with the quickest wit and always a twinkle in her eyes and a radiant smile. Harriet loved jazz and blues music and enjoyed the Harvest Blues Festival many years in a row - she always had music playing and enjoyed sharing her favorite songs. Her greatest pride in life were her children and grandchildren and she shared countless stories of them with whomever she met. Harriet had a very strong friend circle, those friends had been in her life growing up, starting school and throughout the years as they all lived life to the fullest but connecting like no time had ever passed. She cherished those connections with her oldest and dearest friends.
Visitation was held at Adams Funeral Home, 140 King St., Miramichi, on Wednesday, October 25, 2023, from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM.
