Jean Kinghorn Harris

(nee Finlayson)

We regret to announce the passing of Jean Harris at Noric House in Vernon on Monday, May 12, 2014 at the age of 95 years.

Jean was a lifelong resident of Vernon; daughter of a pioneer family at Okanagan Landing. She graduated from UBC with a Bachelor of Arts degree, and was a longtime volunteer with the Canadian Red Cross and a member of Trinity United Church. Jean was a member of Vernon Golf Club for nearly 50 years.

Jean was predeceased by her husband, J.T. Alleyn Harris, and son, Ron, both in 2006. She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by son, Bill (Fran) of Vernon, daughter-in-law, Dale Harris of Lake Country; four grandchildren: Mark of Vernon, Jill of Surrey, Katie (Aaron Bichard) of Vancouver and Anne (Darius) Kinney of Victoria; great-grandson John Herda Harris of Duncan; and a number of extended family members.

Honouring Jean’s wishes, there will be no public services held. In lieu of flowers, friends wishing to do so may make a donation in her memory to the Vernon Branch of the Canadian Red Cross.

Cremation arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home. 250 542 0155
