Pinehurst, NC- A mass of Christian burial will be held at 10 am at St. Michael Church on Thursday Aug. 15, 2013 for Teresa Ann Naples Harmicar, formerly of Canfield who died August 9, 2013. She was born on June 12, 1958 to the late James and Eva Gentile Naples. In 1976 she graduated from Ursuline High School and then obtained a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration from Youngstown State University in 1981. Three years after graduation she married Thomas J. Harmicar on September 17, 1983. She was employed by Mahoning County Sanitary Engineers for 16 years. Upon making a career change she worked for Henderson, Covington, Newman, and Thomas until her retirement to Pinehurst in 2008. Terri was a member of St. Michael in Canfield and Sacred Heart in Pinehurst. She was also a member of the YSU Lifetime Alumni, Youngstown Penguin Club, and Salem Golf Club.

She was an active volunteer for the First Health Moore Regional Hospital as a clown who was affectionately known as “Peaches” and where she enjoyed bringing smiles to patients she visited especially at the Rehabilitation Unit where she was later a patient herself. She also volunteered for the annual U.S. Teens and Kids Golf World Championships in Pinehurst and was looking forward to volunteering at both the Men’s and Women’s U.S. Open Golf Championships next year. In addition to golf, Terri enjoyed tennis, pickelball, running, and working out. She especially enjoyed baking and delivering her baked goods and snacks to friends and neighbors just to see them smile. Her favorite memories included canning tomatoes with her family and holiday trips back to Ohio just because it was a Youngstown thing. Terri and her husband loved to travel to golf tournaments all over the country and that is how she fell in love with Pinehurst during the 2005 Open. She also loved attending YSU football games both in Youngstown and the many on the road games they witnessed but, most of all she enjoyed her family. Her family was the most important fixture in her life and she drew special joy from the accomplishments of her nieces and nephews. Terri is survived by her husband, siblings; Victoria (Charles) Hanni of Austintown, James (Michelle) Naples of Canfield, and Anne (Thomas) Snyder of Youngstown, nieces; Mariah and Hannah Snyder of Youngstown and niece and nephew; Alexandra and James Naples of Columbus. The Harmicar and Naples family would like to give special thanks to Betsy Bindley, her sister from another mother, who was a very special caregiver during her nine month battle with brain cancer. Friends and family may call on Wednesday Aug. 14, from 5-8 pm at the Schiavone Funeral Home in Youngstown and on Thursday one hour before the mass in church. Memorial gifts can be sent in Terri’s name to The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Center at DUMC Box 3624 Durhan, NC 27710.
