Harriet Carell died at her Acton home surrounded by family, according to Kathleen Doran Boyle, the director of Acton Funeral Home in Massachusetts.
“Harriet loved flea markets, making preserves, spending time with her family, and was a great fan of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, whom she referred to as her ‘boyfriend,’” an online obituary read. “She worked for over 30 years as a psychiatric nurse at Emerson Hospital in Concord.”
She is survived by three other children and six grandchildren.
