Graveside services for Ann Marie Harris, 57, of Kempner, will be at 2 p.m. Wednesday at Smith Cemetery in Kempner. No visitation is scheduled.

Ms. Harris died March 27, 2014, suddenly at her home. She was born to James and Joan Harris on Feb. 10, 1957, at the U.S. Naval Hospital in San Diego, Calif., where her father was stationed.

After residing in Washington, D.C., and Virginia for a time, Ms. Harris settled in Arizona, where she worked as a paralegal before joining the staff of Arizona State University. Three years ago she moved to Kempner to be with her mother and her aunt, Fern Berry.

Ms. Harris was a jovial, generous and kind-hearted person whose infectious laugh cheered anyone who was around her. She was one of those people you were glad to see coming. Ms. Harris had a deep-seated faith in God and when Jesus called, she answered.

Survivors include her mother, Joan; “Auntie” Fern Berry; her cousins, Duane Berry and his wife, Cindy, of Kempner and Allison Berry of Baltimore, Md.; many friends from everywhere she has lived; and the three kitties she took in as strays to live “the good life.”

In lieu of flowers, one of Ann’s long-standing requests was that donations be given to the Centex Humane Society.

Scott’s Funeral Home in Copperas Cove is in charge of arrangements.

I worked with Ann at the ASU Bookstore and at the Football stadium. She was very nice, kind, and wonderful lady. I will miss her. RIP my friend.
