With the heaviest of hearts we are sadden to say that our beautiful mother Sally Yvonne Harris peacefully passed away November 20th 2017 in her home at the age of 70. She was born February 25, 1947 to Esteban and Willa Mae Dawang. She married our father Robert Lee Harris Sr. December 4, 1966. Together they raised 10 children.

There are no words to describe the tremendous pain we all feel over the loss of our beloved mother/grandmother. She was more than just a mother and grandmother she was the matriarch of our family. Our mother was so loving, caring and funny not to mention extremely strong. Raising 10 kids is very challenging to say the least but our mother never complained once, she would even allow us to have our friends over (some didn't want to leave). She enjoyed having a house full of kids, she just had a kind loving heart and always helped in any way she could. She would open our home for any friends or family members who needed somewhere to stay.

She was the most supportive mother, always there for us no matter what the situation. Even when we made stupid choices and drove her crazy she never gave up on us. She taught us the true meaning of family and to always be there for each other. She loved all her grandchildren and great grandchildren, and loved holding them and watching them play. We have so many wonderful memories of our mother that we will forever cherish. We would give anything to be able to thank her for everything and to be able to just sit and talk to her. We promise to carry on the family traditions you taught us, we will call each other dumb ass and stupid ass in memory of you. We will stick by each other no matter what and take care of each other. Just help us out and give us the strength to do it. We will try our hardest to make you proud. Knowing you are now with dad helps ease some of our pain. We love you so much mom! Please give dad a hug from all of us.
