Obituary For Barbara Harris

Funeral Service for Mrs. Barbara Ann Harris of Ohatchee will be 1:00 PM on Saturday, April 3, 2021 at Leatherwood Baptist Church - 2709 Old Gadsden Hwy - Anniston, AL. Loyial James Williams, III, Eulogist and Interment at Oak Bowery Baptist Church – Ohatchee. Public viewing will be 5 PM – 8 PM on Friday, April 2, 2021 at Greater Ebenezer Baptist Church – 2064 Grayton Road – Ohatchee, AL.

Mrs. Barbara Ann Harris was born on August 18, 1953 to James and Nettie Lee Bowers, the second eldest of 11 children, and her heart was always toward her family. She was raised to honor the Lord and accepted Him as the head of her life.

Mrs. Barbara Harris was preceded in death by her parents James and Nettie Lee Bowers, sister Julia Mae Johnson, and brother Arnold Lee. She is survived by her sisters, Jonnie Mae (Kevin R), Angela Bowers (Steve), Loretta Murray (Ben) and Leana Anderson (Vick); brothers, William Bowers (Jennie), Larry Bowers, Jerry Bowers and Kalvin.

Barbara and Willie met as neighbors in Compton, California. They married on May 17, 1969, from this union four children were born: Willie Gene Harris Jr (Talandria), LaTashia M. Harris-Ramos (Ernesto), Rayvion V. Harris, Ebonique V. Harris (Garnett). The Harris family home became a sanctuary to all in need. Barbara was resourceful and always found a way to give someone a meal or a place to stay. She would willingly step in the path of danger and sacrifice herself to protect those she loved. Auntie Bob or Maw Maw, was a real-life treasure, with a boundless love for people. She always sought to celebrate other’s accomplishments and support them in their struggles. Her greatest joy was her family (Proverbs 31:10). Barbara joined her husband, Willie, and attended 16th and Noble Church of Christ.

Her love has overflowed to a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She is loved eternally and will be missed into infinity.
