At 10:00 am on April 17, 2019, Hattie Odelia Harrison Schenck, 64, passed away after a long battle with metastatic breast cancer. The daughter of James M. Harrison and Odelia Blount Harper Harrison, she was born on June 3, 1954 in Norfolk, Virginia, where she grew up. She graduated from Granby High School and later studied at a local business college. In 1976 she married Jeffrey Schenck, with whom she moved to the Fullerton area in 1980. Hattie was an active member of Fullerton’s Saint Mary’s Catholic Church. After many productive years as an exemplary employee, in 2018, she retired from PlastiColor Molded Products, Inc. Her co-workers and friends describe her as: “smiley face,” a “special lady to all of us,” a “wonderful person,” with a “contagious and beautiful smile,” and “just a charismatic and sweet person.” She is survived by her husband Jeffrey, her sister Faye V. Harrison and her husband William L. Conwill, three nephews Giles and his wife Janaina Pantoja, Leonart, and Justin Harrison-Conwill along with many cousins. She always carried the following in her wallet which she believed in: “Be strong and bold: have no fear or dread of them, because it is the Lord our God who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
