Josephine eatrice" Hlarris

Life. No one knows what will happen to them in life. All
we can do is accept what God gives us in life, and live accord-
ingly. Those of us that were fortunate enough to have Josephine
"Beatrice" Harris in our lives can say that we were truly blessed.
Our mother was a caring woman that did not hesitate to help
those in need. She would not hesitate to give shelter or food to
friends, family or strangers.
"Beatrice" was born and raised in St. Kitts. She married and
settled in St. Thomas 30 years ago with William Harris. The
couple had eight children. All of her children were raised by
her to develop into adults with her independent personality
and strong character. She talked about her childhood often,
and what she told her children molded them into the young
men and women they have become.
Beatrice Harris will be greatly missed, but because of the
positive ways that she lived her life, she will always be re-
membered in the minds and hearts of all whose lives
weretouched by this wonderful human being. Although she
is no longer part of this life, we all know that she is with the
God that she always talked about Yes, her mortal life is over,
but she now has everlasting life, for this we are all thankful
Until we meet again.

and humility, as well as initiative and never-ending enthusiasm. May she
ret in peace.
JoAnne C Nanton, fellow worker

Josephine Harris was known to many as Mrs. Harris. We were always
able to tell in what part of the Center she was, by her singing or "ram-
bunctious" laughter which was very contagious. Mrs. Harris was a
dedicated worker, reliable and dependable. We will miss her greatly.
