Obituary of Pat Harrier

Patricia A. Harrier, 64, of Austin, passed away Wednesday (December 27, 2023) at her home in Austin with her husband by her side.
Born May 18, 1959, in St. Mary's, Pat was the daughter of Elmer and Betty (Heivly) Stengel. She grew up "on the hill" in a family-built pink house in Emporium.
Pat is a 1977 graduate of Cameron County High School, and she attended the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. She served as Township Secretary for Shippen and Roulette Townships for many years.
Pat loved music and attending concerts with her husband Bill. A self-described hippie, Pat could often be found flashing a peace sign while singing and dancing to her favorite songs. She also enjoyed gardening and loved animals, especially her cats and dog Whitman.
Pat is survived by her beloved husband H. William Harrier. They married on January 27, 2006, and have been inseparable since.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by three children. She was a fiercely loving mother of two sons, Dustin Newcombe of Los Angeles, CA, and Andrew Beck of Albion, and one daughter, Amanda Beck (William) of Monroeville. She is survived by one grandson, Marshall, whom she cherished dearly.

She is also survived by several brothers and sisters, Ronald Stengel of Valley Forge; Cathy Kwasneski of Rochester, NY; Connie Wolfel and Susan Polinick, both of Emporium; and Edward Stengel of Philadelphia, as well as many nieces and nephews. She will be missed by close friend Raymond Lindsey of Austin.
She was preceded in death by her parents, daughter Stephanie Beck, and brother Jeff Stengel.
Memorials may be made to the Teachers Pet Rescue, 19 Blackberry Lane, Coudersport, PA 16915
