Mary Lou (MacDonald) Harris: July 9, 1928 – March 2, 2019

Mary Lou (MacDonald) Harris went home to her Heavenly Father on March 2, 2019. There, she joins her late husband Robert Harris, her parents William and Luella McMaster, her brother Bill, and sisters Margaret and Jean.

She is survived by her sons, Ron (Sandy) of Highlands Ranch, Colo., Bob of Langley, Wash., Mike (Linda) of Florence, S.C., and Jim (Tammy), of Maple Valley, Wash.

In addition, she is survived by eight grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.

Mary was born in Mukilteo, Wash. on July 9, 1928. She lived in the Mukilteo area where she grew up and graduated from Mukilteo High School. She met the love of her life, Robert Edwin Harris, in Everett, Wash., and they were married 61 years.

They raised the family of four boys living in the Seattle area, Florida, Louisiana and, finally, back in the Seattle area, where they eventually retired to Whidbey Island, on the old MacDonald homestead.

She was a lifelong member of the Church of Christ and was a congregant of the South Whidbey Church of Christ. Christ and family were the center of her life and she was the center of her family’s life.

The family is especially thankful for the Whidbey Health Hospice Care for all the kindness, compassion, and loving care in her final moments.

A memorial service, followed by a reception, is 1-3 p.m. Saturday, March 9, 2019 at Island Church, 503 Cascade Ave., Langley, WA 98260. The family suggests remembrances be made to South Whidbey Church of Christ, 360-341-2252, or Central Whidbey Hearts and Hammers, 360-720-2114.
