Mrs. Louise Suggs Harris was born March 6, 1925 to the late Willie Coleman Suggs, Sr. and Luverne Fish Suggs. She was educated in the public school system of Macon County. At an early age she joined the historic Freewill Baptist Church of Ideal, Georgia. After many years of dedicated service she retired from Ideal Intermediate Care Nursing Home as a Nursing Assistant.
She was united in Holy matrimony to the late John Henry Harris and to this union they were blessed with three sons. Richard, her middle son, preceded her in death. Her brother, Willie Coleman Suggs, Jr., also preceded her in death. On January 12, 2017, Louise joined that great caravan of loved ones and believers and we believe the Lord himself said, “Well Done, My Good and Faithful Servant, come on home and rest.”
She leaves to cherish her memories: children, Henry James Harris (Rebecca) Augusta, Georgia, Freddie L. Harris Sr., Ideal, Georgia; grandchildren, DaTosha Harris, Savannah, Georgia, Toya Harris, Augusta, Georgia, Tressa Harris, and Richard Eugene Harris (Cheri) both of Lawrenceville, Georgia, Tara Harris, and Mary Harris both of Decatur, Georgia, Freddie L. Harris, Jr. (Sondra) Alpharetta, Georgia; niece, Annie Joe Leary (Eddie) Macon, Georgia; sister-in-law, Annie Neil Suggs, Ideal, Georgia; and a host of other relatives and friends.
