Anna Babette Stark Harris

August 20, 1935 - May 15, 2021

Anna Babette “Babs” Stark Harris, 85, of Orange, passed into eternal life Saturday, May 15, 2021, at Silsbee Oaks Nursing Home. She was born August 20, 1935, in Orange, to Anna Wingate Stark and Robert Stark.

Babs was a Christian who lived the Lord’s command to “love one another”. She lived in Orange all of her life. She worked jobs inside and outside of home and was very skilled in crafts and baking. Babs’ door was always open, and her house was always clean and comfortable. There was never a time that she didn’t have something to offer whether it be something to drink or eat if company dropped by.

Babs will be greatly missed by her family and friends. She was also affectionately known by many as “Memmie”. She leaves sweet memories of a life of love and service not only to her family but those she chose to call family as she cared for many beyond her own.

Survivors include her son, Tommy Harris, of Orange; grandchildren, Mitzi Harris Carpenter and husband, Sam; Jacob Harris and wife, Diane; Candice Vaughn and husband, Caleb; and Courtney Perry; great-grandchildren, Sam III; Mattie; Aubrey; Parker; Jude; Claire; Kadence; Scarlet; and Lucy; and brothers, Jerry Stark, of LaGrange and Carey Don Stark and wife, Teri, of Orange.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Anna and Robert Stark; husband, Wyndol Frank Harris; daughters, Judy and Joy Harris; sister, Gwen Stark Taylor Strickland; and brother, Jim Stark.

A gathering of Mrs. Harris’ family and friends will be 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., Tuesday, May 18, 2021, at Broussard’s, 490 Cemetery Road, Silsbee. Her graveside service will be 12:00 p.m., Wednesday, May 19, 2021, at Wilkinson Cemetery, Orange.

Babs was definitely a special lady. There were times in mine and my kids lives that she was an gel in disguise bringing us food, paying my bills , daycare or whatever my need was. She was always making sure we weren’t without. I’ve never forgotten that. I will miss her and I loved her dearly ❤️

A wonderful woman who will be missed by many… I have such great memories spending time with Memmie and Wyndol learning how to handle life a little better with every visit… She was the first crafty lady I knew and I must’ve picked up on some of that throughout my life… I’m so thrilled that you’ve joined your husband and daughters, sister and brother and so many more that we’re waiting patiently for you to join them in the kingdom of Christ..well deserved ❤️ My condolences to the family that was left behind especially her son Tommy and all the grandkids and great grandkids who loved her… Rest in peace sweet lady until we meet again I love you… Jojo❤️

I’m not only blessed to of gotten to know her and be her nurse, I am blessed to of made a friend with Tommy and other family via phone calls! Forever will we have a friendship so I’m the one that is BLESSED! Prayers to the whole family! Love Kathy
