Harriet Feider Obituary

     Early Valentine’s Day morning, Feb. 14, 2023, Harriet M. (Gehring) Feider peacefully passed in her sleep at Hill House Memory Care in Moscow, after breaking her femur. She was 86.

     She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Herman Feider, a sister Eileen (Gehring) Feider, and brothers Ronald and George Gehring.

     Harriet was born in Cottonwood Aug 9, 1939, to her parents, Stephen and Rosalia (Stolz) Gehring. She graduated from high school and attended business school in Tacoma. Harriet planned to be a business woman and was quite successful.

     She married Herman after her sister Eileen passed from health complications and by doing so, she signed up to raise their children, Gloria Feider Polzin and Virginia (Feider) Robinson. 

     Harriet moved to Pomeroy, where Herman was a farmer. After a short time they moved their young family to Lewiston, in the early ‘60s. She started her career at Great Western Distributing, which then became Jafco and finally Best Stores. She finished her career as Office Manager (Head Cheese). When the Best Stores closed, mom decided it was time to retire in the late 90’s. Harriet belonged to All Saints Catholic Church and she spent her time cleaning, gardening and watching FOX news.

Harriet is survived by her daughters Gloria Feider Polzin (Jerry) and Virginia Robinson (Jim); two grandchildren, Krystala Malone (Aaron) and JT Robinson (Celie); and 4 great grandchildren, Jackson, Aryia and Olivia Malone and Hayes Robinson. In addition, she’s survived by siblings Marilyn Forsmann of Cottonwood, Scott Gehring of Seattle and Margaret Mickelson of North Carolina.
