With great sadness, Rhianne (Aarn), Vivien, Glynis (Andrew) announce the passing of their dear mother May Anne Harben. May passed away suddenly on January 27, 2024.

May was born in Moncton, New Brunswick on May 2, 1938, to Benjamin and Audrey Keith.

May graduated with a degree in history before travelling to London, England for further study, where she met Anthony Harben. In 1962 the two married and had 60 wonderful years of travelling adventures; first as a young couple and then with their three daughters.

May created an amazing life for herself and her family. She was a mother to more young people than just her own daughters. May Harben was also a gentle upright pillar of strength, wise counsel, grounded, guidance, and support to all. She will be deeply missed by family and her large circle of friends.
