Doretha “Dee” Harris was born October 22, 1955, to Joe Sie and Charles Helen Harris in Houston, TX. On March 27, 1969, she gave birth to her one and only loving son, Reginald Harris, Sr.
Doretha was a scholar at Kashmere Senior High School, graduating with the class of 1975, where out of six siblings, she was well known as the fighter in the family. She later engaged in 3 years of marriage with Timothy Anderson.
She attended Power House Church of God In Christ, under the leadership of the late Superintendent Robert J. Anderson and the Bishop Johnny A. Tates. In her later years, she then became a member of the Robert J. Anderson church choir, where she was named “the mother of the choir” until her health began to fail.
Doretha was an avid lover of sports and believed in protecting her family. She retired from the City of Houston as a data entry clerk; as she was such a “go getter”, retirement could not stop her from working. She then became an animal control officer and later a crossing guard for Highland Heights Elementary School; an occupation she truly enjoyed.
She is preceded in death by, her parents Joe and Helen Harris; her siblings: Albert Eugene Harris, Sr., Joann Toussant, David Harris; nieces: Helen Cherie Toussant and Tameka Harris; and as of 4 months ago, her nephew Albert Eugene Harris, Jr.
