Obituary for MADDIE A. HARRIS

Maddie A. Harris was born on May 27, 1956, to the late Mary Frances Thomas and Howard Percy Mason, in Prince Frederick, Maryland.

On November 4, 1971 she confirmed her love to Robert Harris, Sr. by entering into holy matrimony. Out of this union of love were born three children: Robert Harris, Jr., Roxanne Harris, and Rayfield Harris. For 43 years their love remained until God transition her from this life to a glorious rest on Monday February 10, 2014. Elder Robert Harris remained faithful to her every need. He is to be commended.

Maddie graduated from Calvert Senior High School, later attended Calvert Community College and graduated from Fleet Business School in 1991 where she studied travel agent procedures.

Maddie Harris was baptized in the name of Jesus at an early age. She accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal savior, and received the precious gift of the Holy Ghost

Throughout her life, she attended Greater Bible Way Church in Prince Frederick, MD, Solid Rock Church in Port Republic, MD and Scripture Cathedral of Washington, D.C. where she served as a Missionary.

In 1996, Sister Maddie Harris attended a Watch Night service at Greater Love Temple Church in Milford, Delaware. The love and acceptance she felt that night kept her returning for over 18 years. She was very active with the Sunday School Department and the Hospitality Committee. She was always sphere heading fund raisers to help the church to succeed in any endeavors. We will forever miss the many dinners she hosted at church, recreation centers and in her home. She truly was a blessing to Greater Love Temple during the addition to our church. She gave her resources and was instrumental in others giving also.

Maddie had a strong personality with a lot of spunk and was deeply adored by all who knew her. She was a woman of great strength and character who meant what she said, and said what she meant without hesitation. She loved her family and friends, especially her grandchildren. Every week, she would have a new story about what they were doing and how proud she was of them. She would keep her family walking the straight and narrow by threatening to call Bishop.

She loved to travel and eat in different restaurants. She would readily share her experience with such enthusiasm that one would want to go. She loved good food and good people. She loved to collect hats and wore them. well. If you were looking for dolls or knick knacks, you could find them at Sister Maddie's house.

Sister Maddie trusted God throughout her illness and had an expectancy of him healing her body. When the average person would have given up, she called on Jesus the more. She fought a good fight and she kept the faith. God knew she was tired so he collected his precious jewel. We will miss her, but we won't grieve as others that have no hope.

She leaves to cherish all the wonderful memories, her Husband, Elder Robert Harris, Sr.; one daughter, Roxanne Harris; two sons, Robert Harris, Jr.(Kimberly), Rayfield Harris (Kecia); three grandsons, Michael Harris, Damon Swann and Robert Harris III; two granddaughters, Monica Swann and Tristan Harris; one goddaughter, Tyece Culley; one great godson, Jabari Penn; three sisters, Pamela Hall (Leonard), Yvonne Mason and Diane Jefferson (Nelson); three brothers, Berjerome Mason, Everette "Chuck" Mason and Marvin Thomas; five brother-in laws, Isaac Harris, Floyd Harris (Mary), John Harris( Geraldine), Charles Harris (Deborah), Leonard Harris (Marsha); one sister-in-law, Darlene Harris; and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives, friends, and her loving church family.
