Ms. Harris' legacy will live on through her students, Le Drake, her sweet nephews, and the mission work she did in Vietnam. I'm so sorry that I missed her visitation and funeral. What a wonderful and productive life she lived! My son often told me of the beautiful sewing work that Le Drake had done. I didn't know that it was Miss Ruth who had taught her.
Miss Harris was an awesome teacher and role model. I still use many of the things she taught me when I cook and sew. Have thought of her often. My deepest sympathy to her family and friends. Rest in peace Miss Harris!
Miss Ruth, was an amazing woman, I remember visiting her with my mother and enjoying her cream candy as a child. It was absolutely the best. So happy she is now dancing in the Streets of Gold with Jesus!!
Miss Harris was a special teacher and wonderful Christian woman. I learned much from her when in school and when our paths crossed in Baptist circles over the years. Jim and Ruth took bible classes together and she was always such a joy.
What a wonderful lady. I never had the priviledge of meeting her but know what wonderful things she did for so many people through her dear friend Le Drake and Le is carrying on Miss Ruth's tradition of helping others. God surely is rejoicing in welcoming Miss Ruth with open arms.
Ms Ruth is a dear saint. She will be missed. My sympathies to all her loved ones.
Ms. Ruth is a dear saint. I am proud to have known her. She will be missed.
In memory of a special person. I happened to see Miss Harris about 15 yrs ago, she looked the same as she did when she taught me at NHS '58-'61. Such a lovely lady, Rest in Peace, Miss Harris.
