It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother, Louise Yvonne Harp on 12/14/18. She was born on her family’s farm in Glendale, California on May 23, 1928 to Margaret and Arthur LaRocque. The LaRocque family moved to Napa in February 1941 where she attended St. Johns Catholic School, Napa High School, and Napa College. She married our father, Victor Harp on July 19, 1946 and together they raised seven children in the Napa Valley. After our father passed away, Mom traveled extensively with her sister Beryl Bates and also volunteered with her at Community Projects and NARFE. Mom enjoyed her time volunteering at Community Projects where she has many wonderful friends.
