MARION - Devue Hall Harris, age 84, of the Montford Cove Community in Marion, NC went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday morning, January 13, 2013 following a brief illness. She was born on February 11, 1928 in Marion, NC to the late Cleveland Hall and Belle Morgan Hall. She was the widow of Clarence A. Harris who died in 1975. She was preceded in death by three brothers, Charles D. Hall, Rev. Millard F. Hall and Wayne C. Hall; three sisters, Clara Hall Greene, Jeanette Hall Davis and Faye Hall Marlowe; and her son-in-law, Vann E. Wall. Devue was a loving mother, nana, sister, aunt and friend.
Devue spent her childhood years in the East Marion Community. She attended East Marion Elementary and Marion High School. She also worked in textiles at Marion Manufacturing. After marrying Clarence A. Harris in 1946, she moved to the Montford Cove Community where she spent the remainder of her years. She also worked at C.P. Clare in Asheville. She would later work at Baxter Healthcare until she retired in 1990. Devue was an active member of Montford Cove Baptist Church and the Willing Workers Sunday School Class.
Devue loved spending time with her family, especially yearly vacations in Gatlinburg. She loved working in her yard and flowers, cooking and sewing. She particularly loved taking family pictures where four generations were represented. Her greatest joy, however, was her great grandchildren.
