Harriet M. Hallonquist, 106, died quietly at her home in Farmington on Thursday, Sept. 9.

While in Farmington she raised and showed Arabian horses with many awards to her credit.

Survivors include her cousin Don's wife Becky Becker of Forestville, and their children Brian Becker of San Francisco, Kurt Becker of Forestville and Morgan Becker of Berkeley, as well as her caregivers and many friends who will miss her dearly.
