Clementine HARRIS

Passed away on October 7, 2021

Clementine HARRIS, of Seattle, Washington passed away on Thursday, October 7, 2021.

Clementine Harris was born on November 26, 1929, in Shreveport, Louisiana. In 1950, she moved to Yakima, Washington, for the purpose of attending Nursing School. After living in Yakima, she moved to Seattle to seize more opportunities available to her. In 1952 she married. During this time she worked at Boeing company, until she had her second child. She gave birth to three children: Sandra Schlag, Patericia O’Brien, and David Harris.

Clementine loved helping people. She was known for her great compassion for others in need. She worked for Olsten Health Services, as a CNA, until 1990. She then moved to Templeton California, and worked for the visiting nurse service. In Seattle and California, she was known for her professionalism and her loyalty to patient confidentiality and the compassionate way she dealt with her patients.

In 1999, Clementine moved back to Seattle to be closer to her family. She had high principles she lived by, and those were enhanced when she began studying the Bible with Jehovah’s Witnesses. In February 1960 she publicly dedicated her life to Jehovah God by water baptism.

Although she faced many challenges raising 3 children alone, she relied solely on Bible teachings and successfully raised her children. She also shared her way of life with as many as she could, helping them to find a meaningful life now and a beautiful hope for the future.

Clementine was known for her baking; she loved to cook for others. She loved to travel as well with her trusty disposable camera as she would say “I like to take pictures of where I’ve been.”

Clementine fell asleep in death peacefully with her family by her side on October 7, 2021. She will be greatly missed not only by her family but all her knew her. She was preceded in death by Jessie Carter (mother), Jessie Mae Harris (sister), Patericia O’Brien (daughter), George Carter (brother), and Odell Henderson (sister). She leaves behind Sandra Schlag (daughter), David Harris (son), and grandchildren Jessica O’Brien, David Schlag, Melissa Mills, Deiona Harris, Sean O’Brien and Marcus Harris, as well as her great grandchildren Taylor Harris, Olive O’Brien, Adeline Harris, Arianna Harris, Paloma Mills, Yuna Pepper O’Brien, and Ember O’Brien.
