Reflections of Life
The angels in heaven rejoiced on Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2016, when Dimple Harris left her earthly home in Lawton to join their number in eternity in heaven.
Dimple was born March 11, 1937, to the union of T.J. and Sallie Mae Jones Mosley in Barton, Miss. She grew up in Memphis, Tenn., where she attended Manassas High School. She confessed her faith in Christ at an early age at Shiloh MBC in Barton, Miss. She later joined Getwell Church of Christ, where she served faithfully for many years.
She was united in holy matrimony to Cleo Harris on May 8, 1957, in Desoto County, Miss. Dimple worked as an insurance agent for Atlanta Life Insurance Co. for a number of years. She was also a sales rep for Princess House Crystal and later provided childcare in her home until her retirement. In 2011, Dimple and Cleo moved to Lawton to be near their son and daughter-in-law, Larry and Paulette Harris, who were her caregivers.
