Harriet Marie (Petersen) Fort, 102 years of age, of DeWitt, passed away at her home Thursday night, July 26, 2012. She was born in Axtel, Neb. on January 21, 1910. Harriet was the daughter of William and Ane Petersen, who came from Denmark early in the 20th century. As a small child, she lived with her family in various parts of Nebraska and Arkansas where her father practiced his trade as a blacksmith. When Harriet was 7 years old, the family settled in DeWitt.

She taught rural school for four years in Saline and Gage counties. She married Harold Fort in 1938. They were the parents of Marcia Bergmeyer and Joyce Holtmeier.
In addition to being devoted to her family, she was a dedicated business woman. Her career parallels the history of the Petersen Mfg. Co., her family's business.

She was the company's first sales manager. She also carried the title of corporation Secretary/Treasurer; she was a director of Petersen Canada in Toronto and Petersen International stationed in Chicago. She remained active in the business until the company was sold in 1985.
