To Vernell and the Harris Family;

Your mother was at times my mother. I remember when she moved a mountain for me. I will NEVER forget that. She was one of the strongest women I have ever met. I'm sure that Mable was one of the first to greet her because she loved her dearly. You were lucky to have her as a mother and we were lucky to have known her. I am very sorry for your loss.
Love, Michelle Butler

Truly a bright and wonderful light was gone out. The light that she cast in the Yuba-Sutter area will not be soon forgotten. Ms. Harris clearly let you know where she stood on any any issue, and I loved her for that. Her gatherings on Sunday evenings were a mixture of politics and down home visits.

I was so sorry to hear of the loss of this wonderful lady, but join in the celebration of a useful life, well lived and one that truly did make a difference. My memories of Mrs. Harris usually involved seeing her grab her handbag and stalk out of school board meetings to file yet another complaint with the appropriate agency. She was a wonderful friend to my mother, Marilyn Leal, who speaks of her often. Patty Connolly Dark

I would like to share this description I found of Sojourner Truth: “Every eye was fixed on this almost Amazon form, which stood nearly six feet high, head erect, and eyes piercing the upper air like one in a dream. Those only can appreciate it who saw her powerful form, her whole-souled, earnest gesture, and listened to her strong and truthful tones.”

Zelma was my Sojourner Truth. Her determination was something to see and admire and when she set her mind to accomplishing something, one could only marvel at her tenacity! Hardship and adversity were no stranger to Zelma but there was never any doubt she would overcome. She was a mother who loved her children fiercely and expected nothing less from them than their very best while, at the same time, respecting their uniqueness and individuality. She was a mover and a shaker and if I could dedicate a song in honor of Zelma, I think it would be:

“Ain’t gonna let nobody turn me round, turn me round, turn me round
Ain’t gonna let nobody turn me round, keep on a walkin’, keep on a talkin’, walkin’ on to freedom land.”

The world would be a better place if there were more Zelmas in it! Rest easy Friend – You’ve fought a good fight, you’ve finished the course and you’ve kept the faith. I’m very honored to have known you.
