CHRISTINE JONES HARRIS entered into God’s arms on Sunday, July 19, 2015. She was born in Biloxi, MS on May 5, 1962. She was 53 years old.
Chris attended Tate High School in Gonzales, FL, graduated from Northview High School in Dothan, AL and from Wallace Community College in Dothan, AL; she attended University of Alabama at Birmingham. She was a retired legal secretary/paralegal, spending most of her career in Baton Rouge, LA.
Chris was a loyal, loving daughter, sister and mother. She enjoyed spending time with her aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends. She loved reminiscing with her caregivers about her family and she could make them laugh and would remind them to "Live, Love, Laugh". They weren’t just words to her; it was a choice and a way of life. She was very organized and could complete a task while others were still thinking about it.
Chris was always thinking of others and unselfishly putting them before herself. Even when she was so ill, she was always concerned about others; yet she left you no doubt just how she felt and what she thought about things. She enjoyed crocheting baby blankets, afghans, hats and scarves and giving them to friends and family. She was an awesome cook, enjoyed morning walks on the beach and could put a puzzle together in record time. Chris could accomplish anything she attempted and met every challenge with determination and courage. She was always determined to see everything to its completion. This and her enduring spiritual strength proved to be her greatest qualities as she courageously battled cancer for eight challenging years. She always had a smile and a loving, generous heart for everyone she met or knew. She always saw the good in everyone.
Chris was preceded in death by her father, Morris C. Jones, Pensacola, FL; Maternal grandparents, Doyce & Eniz Davis, Biloxi, MS; Paternal grandparents, Aaron & Hazel Jones, Pensacola, FL;
Uncles Donald Davis, Robert Davis & James Davis, all of Biloxi, MS
