Barbara D. Harris, our beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, entered into her sweet eternal rest at her home in Mohave Valley, Arizona, on February 19th at the age of 84, after a lengthy illness. Barbara was born in Fullerton, California on September 30, 1937, and was preceded in death by her parents, Mark and Norma Leach and one brother, Ronald Leach.
Barbara never worked outside the home, focusing her life on raising her two children and later her grandchildren. She was always there for her family, supporting and helping them in any way she could, often sacrificing her needs and wants. She lived for her granddaughters, and they contributed their values and wonderful childhood to their grandma’s raising.
She loved going to church with her family and felt it was her life’s calling and ministry to play the organ. She also enjoyed crocheting and knitting and watching “The Waltons.”
In her final years, months and days, her family felt it their privilege to return the favor by taking care of her in the comfort of her home.
Barbara was a wonderful wife, mom and grandma and is survived by her loving family: Bennie, her devoted husband of 68 years; Glenda Harris Schuler, daughter, of Henderson, NV; Jon Harris (Jessy), son, and two grandchildren, Kayla and Kelci, of Mohave Valley. Our hearts have a huge hole now with mom’s going home.
