Daphne Harris Obituary
January 2,1930 - May 28, 2018Daphne Gertrude Harris passed away at home in Montebello on May 28, 2018, after an extended illness. She was 88 years old. She was survived by her brother, Ronald Harris, his wife, Sandra, and their three daughters, Sarah Harris-Arnold, Elizabeth Harris and Amanda Honey, all of whom reside in England. She was also survived by her beloved Allison House, for whom Daphne was not only a nanny for 16 years, but also a second mother and a surrogate grandmother. Daphne grew up in England during WWII, one of five children in her family. After the war, she worked as a waitress for a number of years before coming to the United States, obtaining her U.S. citizenship and doing office and care-taking work. She will be remembered by those who knew her as fiercely independent and never without a strong opinion on any subject (particularly on the subject of tea), but always the proper lady, a lover of animals and one who cared about others. She will be missed by the many whose lives she touched.Please sign the guestbook at legacy.com/obituaries/pasadenastarnews.
