Luisa C. Harmon, 76, of Georgetown, Del., passed away peacefully at home with her family by her side on Sunday, Nov. 6, 2016.

She met the love of her life, Joseph Harmon, who was serving in the U.S. Navy at the time, and the two were married on June 19, 1965, in Tamuning, Guam. He was working at the Andersen Air Force Base air terminal, and she worked at the Base Exchange in the terminal. She spent 23 years as a Navy wife, moving every three years with her family. They returned to Delaware in 1985 and decided to make Georgetown their home.

Harmon worked at a local bank as a loan processor in Millsboro, Del., before deciding to retire and help with her grandchildren.
