Obituary for Eleanor Harris (Lee)

Eleanor  Harris (Lee)
Eleanor Lee Harris left this earthly life to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and her beloved husband, Marion Miller Harris on Sunday, January 21, 2018 in Tyler, Texas. She was born October 6, 1923 in Mason, Texas to Albert G. Lee and Alfreda Tips Lee.

She grew up in Sweetwater, Texas in a musical family and began taking piano lessons at age 5. All through school she was active in music, drama, tennis, and swimming and youth activities at her church. During high school years, she began organ lessons and was a member of the National Honor Society. She attended the St. Louis Institute of Music and then Baylor University, where she majored in piano, also taking harp, organ and cello lessons. She became a member of Mu Phi Epsilon fraternity for music majors and served as president of Phi Beta Mu, Baylor music fraternity, was a member of the Athenean Sorority and was selected two years as a Baylor Beauty.

On July 1, 1944 Eleanor married Marion Harris, a Baptist pastor and served faithfully as a pastor’s wife in churches in Live Oak, Devers, Mineola, Marshall, Jefferson and New Colony, Texas. She was always very active in church life, serving as pianist or organist, teaching adult Sunday school and leading Girls’ Auxiliary. She lead each church’s Women’s Missionary Union and held state offices in Texas WMU. She was active in the Marshall Music Club for many years, serving as president and other offices. She sold pianos and organs through Tyler Baldwin Co. and managed their Baldwin store in Marshall for several years. She was also a lifetime member of PEO.

Eleanor was very accomplished, but always said her greatest joy and her life work was sharing in the ministry with her husband in each of the churches he pastored for over 62 years until his death in 2006. At that time she moved from Jefferson to Tyler and lived at Rosewood Estates.

Eleanor is survived by two sons; Tom Harris and wife, Anna Kay of Waco, Texas and Tim Harris and wife, Becky of Tyler, Texas; grandchildren and great-grandchildren include; Lance Harris and wife, Kira of Waco, Texas and children Emma, Jack and Hearon; Holly Harris Stump and husband, Matt of Waco, Texas; Stephanie Harris Pool and husband, Michael and children Keaton and Tucker of Plano, Texas; Paul Harris and wife, Nadji and children Kiana and Ave of Baytown, Texas.
