Regina Marie Hartnett, 84, Kansas City, Missouri, passed away April 20, 2020, at Merriam Gardens Healthcare & Rehab, Shawnee, Kansas.

Regina grew up in Kansas City, Missouri, and was the older of two daughters born to Fred and Adele Harris. She graduated from Hogan High School and worked as a secretary before marrying Thomas V. Hartnett in May 1959 and raising their family.

Regina was one of the sweetest and kindest people you could ever meet. She never had a harsh word to say about anyone. She delighted in being a mother to her children and relished being the go-to grandma for her grandkids. She dedicated many years of her life as a loving grandma who was always happy to babysit her grandkids and cheered them on as they grew up.

Regina was preceded in death by her parents, sister Martha and husband of 60 years Tom. She is survived by her children Tom Hartnett II (Margaret), Nancy Marcus (Troy) and Matt Hartnett (Heather), and grandchildren Lindsey, Andrew, and Micah Hartnett.

Regina was a life-long Catholic and was a member of Christ the King Church, Kansas City, Missouri. No memorial services are planned.
