Obituary for Mary E. Harbert

Mary E. Harbert

August 24, 1945 - March 12,2024

Mary was born on August 24, 1945 in Cumberland, Maryland to the late Edgar and Emma Harbert. Mary was the big sister to Connie McCormack (Lance), the late Terry Murray, and Edgar (Kerry) Harbert. She was the wife to her first husband, Robert Forand. She was a beloved mother to Terry Viera (Jeff), Connie Ducharme (late Doug), and Bobby (Sharon).

Mary spent many summers with her second husband, the late Joseph Sokoloski. They also spent a great deal of time on the Cape.

Mary was very proud of her seven grandchildren: Allie Gordon Esteves (late), Emily Gordon, Olivia Gordon, Michael Gordon, Conor Gordon, Ashley Ducharme, and Catie Ducharme. Mary was always up for sharing a funny memory in exchange for a coca-cola (or five!).

She completed two years of college at Shepherdstown, West Virginia before becoming a WAVE, Navy, and later enjoyed working as a CNA. She was happiest caring for others.

Mary loved family gatherings and cherished spending time with her children and grandchildren. She was known for her delicious, homemade hamburgers made with Lipton soup mix. She relished trips to Twin Oaks with her family where she would order five (not three!) baked stuffed shrimp. Her favorite song was “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner.

Mary had the biggest heart, frequently donating to a multitude of charities. Mary had beautiful blue eyes, a warm smile that lit up every room she was in, and an infectious laugh that brought so much joy to those around her. Mary will be missed by her family and by her friends in her Sparrow Point community. She lived at Sparrow Point for over twenty years and would often be seen walking and visiting the little convenience store.

Memorial service will be held on Thursday March 21st at 8:30am at Saint Gregory the Great Church 360 Cowesett Road Warwick, RI

Donations can be made Operation Stand Down, 1010 Hartford Ave. Johnston, R.I. 02919, an organization which helps at need Veterans.
