Mrs Harris was a wonderful lady. I remember her at Central School as our Music Teacher. Teaching us the seasonal songs for thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. I fondly remember her at the church with Bob and the kids as I grew up. .
Fly high Mrs Harris, fly high.

Mrs. Harris was always so good to me. When I was in the fourth grade our house burned down and we all had a big Spring Festival and I was supposed to have a white blouse and a black skirt well I didn’t have one anymore so Miss Harris brought me one to wear so I wouldn’t miss out on the Spring Festival such a lovely, wonderful good hearted person. Rest in peace❤️

Our deepest and sincerest sympathy to you and your family during this difficult time.

Your Mom meant so much to so many students (including my husband) as she always showed kindness and grace - a shining example of what we all should be....

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
