Hildred E. Harris, native resident of Johnson City, surrounded by family and friends went to be with the Lord Monday, the 4th of August, at 4:45 A.M., at the Johnson City Medical Center.
Hildred was born in 1925 and lived amongst family and friends that come to cherish her; she had lifelong ties to the neighborhood. Everyone called her “Mother” or “Mother Harris.”
She was married to Allen Harris in 1950, and celebrated their 64th anniversary on June 6, 2014. They raised 6 children.
She never met a stranger, and she never lost her sense of wonder. Her kindness to the passersby on her busy street became extensions of her family as she shared her smile and her faith.
Funeral Services will be held at 12:00 p.m., Friday August 8, 2014 at Mt. Olive Baptist Church, 810 Montgomery St., Johnson City, TN.
The family will receive friends from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Church. Burial will follow at the VA National Cemetery, Mountain Home, TN.
