Harriet was born in Guernsey, Wyo. on Aug. 16, 1938 to Harry and Marlea (Pierce) Walker. She was raised in the mining town of Sunrise, Wyo., where she graduated from high school in 1956. Harriet married her husband of fifty years, Robert Donnell Haddix, on June 23, 1957 at the little brown church in Sunrise. The couple farmed near Yoder, Wyoming prior to moving to Sunrise when Bob went to work at the CF&I iron ore mine. There the couple had two children, Cindy and David. In the early 1960's the family lived in Lusk for a short period while the iron ore mine workers were on strike. In 1966 the family moved to Guernsey where they had two more children, Monte and Becky. Harriet worked as a part-time postal clerk in Hartville, Wyo. and at Crazy Tony's restaurant in Guernsey as a waitress before going to work in the 1980's for Burlington Northern Railroad from which she retired in the late 1990's. She was a member of the United Presbyterian Church in Guernsey. She enjoyed fishing, gardening, sewing/crocheting, playing cards and bargain shopping.
