Teresa Marie (Taylor) Harris, 50, of Weir, went to be with our Lord and Father on Sunday, February 17, 2013 at her home unexpectedly.
Born Teresa Marie Taylor on August 7, 1962 in Chester, Pennsylvania to Roberta Uber and Albert Taylor, Terry grew up in Weir, Kansas and graduated from Southeast High School in 1981.
She married her devoted husband, Leonard in 1994. She was a homemaker, dedicated daughter, mother and wife, and a faithful member of the Weir First Baptist Church. Teresa loved her family immensely and was often referred to as the glue that bound them. She gave of herself to the world and was known by her community for her caring for numerous foster children, and the fact she would help anyone out in their time of need, no matter the time of day.
Terry is survived by her husband, Leonard Harris; seven children, Christina Krogen, John Krogen, Justin Krogen, William Harris, Meredith Harris, Autumn Harris, and Donald Harris; six grandchildren, April, Seth, Christian, Blaise, Alexis, and Kaden; her parents, Ronald and Roberta Uber; four brothers, Albert Taylor, Robert Taylor, Dane Uber, and Stephen Uber.
She was preceded in death by one daughter, Melissa Taylor-Uber.
She was fiercely independent, strong-willed, and good-hearted and was in turn loved dearly by those around her. Her absence in our lives will be felt indefinitely and is as immeasurable as the love she gave her family.
Services will be 2:00 p.m., Friday (Feb. 22) at the Brenner Mortuary with Rev. James Shope officiating. Burial will follow in the Hosey Hill Cemetery, west of Weir. The family wishes to invite everyone to the Weir Senior Citizen Center following the graveside service. The family will receive friends from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Thursday, at the Brenner Mortuary, where friends may call after 4 p.m. Thursday. The family suggests memorials be given to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. These may be left at or mailed to the Brenner Mortuary, 114 E. 4th St., Pittsburg. Friends may leave condolences online at www.brennermortuary.com. Arrangements are under the direction of the Brenner Mortuary, Pittsburg, KS.
