Mrs. Harris was a former longtime Mayfield resident.

Her marriage to Larry Harris, former Evening Sun sportswriter, ended in divorce.

Since moving to Homeland several years ago, Mrs. Harris attended Mass at the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Mary Our Queen.

She was a former communicant of St. Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Church, Harford Road and Pelham Avenue, Mayfield, where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. Monday.

Mrs. Harris is survived by her daughter, Ashleigh Harris Wilkes of Abingdon.
