Witt and Lela Ann Jennings Witt.  Dorothy married Vance Lindell Harris on June 9, 1943 and they resided in Reno – Dorothy was a resident for 85 years.  She had a heart for children with special needs and taught school for many years in the Rhome and Azle schools. In her 70’s, Dorothy took up writing poetry and wrote a keepsake poem for each of her children and grandchildren. She was a longtime member of Walnut Creek Baptist Church and was ever faithful to that church.  Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband, Vance Lindell Harris; infant daughter, Margaret Ann; brothers, Autry, Marvin, Woodrow, Clarence, and J.L; and sisters, Ruby, Nadine, Mary Ruth, and Mildred.

 

Dorothy is survived by two children, James L. Harris of Saginaw and Janis C. Stevenson of Briar; six grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; sisters, Imogene Sneed of Weatherford and Georgiana Smith of Poolville; and more nieces, nephews and cousins than you can imagine.
