Harriet Sciongay, 94, passed away peacefully in her home on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina on April 9, 2020. Born in Shelton, Connecticut, she also lived in Monroe and Westbrook, CT. Harriet along with her now deceased husband, Edward, owned The Shelton Manufacturing Company where they manufactured small aircraft parts for Sikorsky Aircraft and the US Government.
Harriet leaves behind her three daughters, and two sons-in-law Shirley R. and Richard Carroll, Jean Sciongay, and Joan and James Pastor. Harriet also leaves two grandsons Mark and John Bergami and three granddaughters, Corie Bergami, Shirley McCormick and Joan Goulet, plus many great grandchildren. Harriet also joins her deceased son Edward Sciongay, Jr. in heaven.
In October of 2013, Harriet sold 155 acres of land in Clinton, Connecticut to the State which added it to the Stuart B McKinney Wildlife Refuge and named it The Menunketesuck Wildlife Area. This complimented an earlier sale of 83 areas of adjoining land to the Town of Westbrook. In 2017 Harriet sold the last remaining parcel to the State of Connecticut. Harriet and Ed were fierce protectors of the land and its abundant wildlife. They can now rest in peace knowing that it will be forever preserved in its natural state for all to enjoy.
Harriet was a sweet, kind, thoughtful lady. She will be greatly missed. Mark, Grammy wanted to ask you if you remember where thought got you?
