Carolyn Sue "Susie" Harris

September 2, 1948 - June 1, 2021

Carolyn Sue ‘Susie’ Harris, 72 years young, of Fannett, passed away Tuesday, June 1, 2021. She was born September 2, 1948, in Port Arthur, to Joe and Lolly Almond.

Susie met Gus, the love of her life, on a blind date in 1966 in Buna, married shortly thereafter, and cherished over fifty-four years of wedded bliss.

Known as “Mrs. Susie”, she touched many lives during the thirty plus years in her day care businesses. However, the most cherished name to her family was “Mom” or “MawMaw”. She could always be found at every activity and celebration of her kids and grandkids. She had a heart full of love and she treasured family gatherings, especially Easter. She loved to laugh and tell funny stories about her family. No matter what the situation, she could always find humor.

Susie suffered with severe Rheumatoid Arthritis and other conditions for twenty years but one would never know it from her strength and stamina. She never complained and still had her laugh even in the last few days.

Those left to cherish her memory are her husband, Gus Harris, of Fannett; sons, Roger Harris and wife, Kelli, of Fannett; and Mike Harris and wife, Susan, of Buna; daughter, Amanda Harris Meaux, of Beaumont; grandchildren, Larrit Harris, of Beaumont; Dustin Tillery, of Fannett; Jaci Harris, of Fannett; Colton Harris and wife, Aaren, Emilee Wood and husband, Michael, and Korbin Harris, all of Buna; Katie Harris Meaux, of Galveston; and Cameron Meaux, of Beaumont; great-grandchildren, Anna Harris; Wesley and Korbin Wood; and Jason Dean – on the way; Loving brother and sister, Avery Almond and wife, Luz, of Gause, Texas and JoAnn Rieve and husband, George, of Labelle. Also, special loves- her Petey Bird, Percy the cat, and grand-dog, Harlow.

Okay Mama, when we all get our second wind we’re leaving, so we will see you again someday.
