Obituary for BERNICE EVELYN HARRIS

Bernice Evelyn Harris, a resident of Calvert County, MD, transitioned from earthly life to heavenly glory on Christmas Day, December 25, 2012 surrounded by her family. Bernice was born in Paris, MD on May 18, 1921 to the late Cephas Randall, Jr. and Helen V. Rawlings Randall. She was the eldest of five children. She later married Gilbert Franklin. From that marriage she gave birth to Nathaniel Eugene Franklin. Then one day she was looked upon by Preston Harris. He took her hand, gave her his love and from that marriage six children were born. (Preston Harris preceded her in death on May 1, 2008). She was a homemaker much of her life-loved cooking, caring for her husband, children, and grandchildren. When Bernice could no longer cook her meals she would ask a couple of her nieces, her grandson to cook and her daughter, Myrtle to cook her favorite dishes. She would tell you if your cooking did not taste good and when it did, ask her granddaughter, Corinda. Bernice was a very generous and giving person. She gave to her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and others. She would give her last knowing that the Lord would bless her. Bernice grew up in a Christian atmosphere. As children, she and her sisters used to sing at church while their brother played the guitar. Her mother made their clothes for all occasions. As an adult, Bernice rededicated her life to the Lord. She loved to worship and praise God. She loved to sing and play the piano. Bernice loved to travel. She and her husband did a lot of traveling in their younger years. With her daughter Earlene driving, she attended RW Schambach Camp meetings, Benny Hinn meetings, National Church of God, and many more. Bernice watched God TV and other Inspirational channels daily. She loved the Lord and was bold enough to tell you that she was going to remain in her home until she went home to be with the Lord. Bernice was a woman of FAITH which made her a strong woman. She was a very special lady. Those that had a special bond with Bernice knew the love she had for them. Bernice was an avid Bible reader-favorite, Psalm 91. She lived by Psalm 91 daily. Bernice encouraged many people and sometimes would end her conversation by saying read Psalm 91. Who would have ever known that once she reached the age of 91 she would depart this life! Bernice transitioned from earth to heaven leading the way for her seven children: Nathaniel (Pat), Earl, Earlene, Jewell (Jimmy), Myrtle (Michael), Gretchen and David. Her legacy also includes 13 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. Brother and sisters, Thomas Randall, Mary Kent and Mattie Watkins preceded her in death; one sister, Dorothy Adams; a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, and a host of other family members and friends who will cherish and share her lifetime memories. Lifted from this temporary earthly realm and resting with our Lord and Savior, but never ever from our hearts. Salute to Bernice Evelyn Harris, well done thou good and faithful servant! To God be all the Glory!
