Harriet Heiden Kirchhoff

February 16, 1929 ~ July 29, 2020 (age 91)


Harriet Heiden Kirchhoff, 91, passed away on July 29, 2020.  Born in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, on February 16, 1929, she was the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Harry H. Heiden, and the wife of the late Peter O. Kirchhoff.

Harriet graduated from North High School in Sheboygan, class of 1947 as Valedictorian, attended Sweet Briar College in Sweet Briar, Virginia, and graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 1951, where she was affiliated with Delta Gamma Sorority.

On August 9, 1952, Harriet was united in marriage to Peter Kirchhoff.  The couple resided in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, before moving to the Milwaukee area in 1975, making their home in Brookfield.

To all who knew her, Harriet was known for her warm and caring nature.  Tending to flowers in her garden, watching and feeding birds, traveling world-wide with family and friends, and playing golf were activities she enjoyed.  But her greatest love was her family.  She will always be remembered as the loving wife of Peter for 67 years and mother who took the greatest pride in her children and grandchildren.

Harriet is survived by two sons, Jeffrey of Northfield, New Hampshire, and Bruce (Andrea) of Highlands Ranch, Colorado, and two grandsons, Andrew and Tyler.  Besides her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Marion Heiden.
