Mrs. Harbour, 87, of Collinsville, passed away Thursday evening at Bedford Care of Marion. She will always be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother and for her love of traveling.

Harbour Jr. and wife Sherry; grandchildren John Derek Harbour and wife Amber, Ashely Harbour, Wills Scarbrough; great-grandchildren John Cade Harbour, Noah Harbour, Madison Harbour and nieces, for whom she became a second mother at their mother's death, Donna Hall and Pam Suarez.
