Bessie Ann Harris, 74, beloved wife of the late William “Bill” Harris, went to be with the Lord, Sunday, April 24, 2022.
Born in Travelers Rest, SC, she was the daughter of the late Walter Eugene and Ada Lee Stewart Rogers.
Bessie was married to the love of her life, Bill, for 40 years before he passed away in 2013, shortly after their 40th Anniversary. She was heartbroken hoping to make it to their 50th Anniversary. Now they will be able to celebrate their 50th Anniversary together in heaven on February 16, 2023.
Bessie was a great Christian woman that believed and trusted in God for everything. She had a strong work ethic and worked hard her entire life. She was employed by H&R Block for 32 years as a tax preparer. Bessie enjoyed working in her flower and vegetable gardens. She loved animals, and just helping others where she could lend a hand. Bessie lived a fulfilling life with her close family, driving the Model A, Herbie and her 1964 1/2 Mustang to car shows, doing “The Twist” and enjoying all the adventures that her family did together.
She is survived and will be greatly missed by her daughter, April; and grandson, Joshua.
A private service has been held.
Memorials may be made to the Greenville Humane Society, 305 Airport Rd, Greenville, SC 29607, www.greenvillehumane.com.
