She was active in the Montrose and Delta Elks.
She is survived by her mother, Marjorie Boyd Grett; brother, Jess Grett of Olathe; sons, Mark and Scott Conner of Denver; stepson, Todd Harris; and granddaughter, Casey Harris of Breckenridge and companion Tom Rowan. She was preceded in death by her husband, Gene Harris; brother, Jimmy Grett; father, James L. Grett; daughter, Dawn Conner; and stepson, John Harris.
A celebration of her life will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 2, 2012, at the Crippin Funeral Home Chapel in Montrose.
