Obituary

Bernice Harris
1928 - 2019

Bernice was born June 13th, 1928 to Carl and Agnes Hagen in Starbuck Minnesota and died in The Dalles Oregon on July 14th, 2019.

Bernice attended country school until the eighth grade, and graduated from Starbuck High. She attended St. Olaf College in Northfield Minnesota for a year, and was fortunate to be accepted at the world renowned Miss Woods Training School for teachers of young children.

In the early 1950’s Bernice and her friend Dolores came west and were offered teaching positions at Court Street School in The Dalles, as there was a need for teachers with the influx of population during the construction of The Dalles Dam, she taught second grade. This is where she met her future husband Dale while he was working on the Dam, they married in June of 1954, she was predeceased by Dale on Easter 2017. To this union were born three children, Bruce (Lori) Harris, Carla (David) Raffin and Janet Harris, who all survive her. Bernice also has four grandchildren, Matthew and Michael Harris, Amanda (Raffin) Salazar and Adrien Raffin, and two great grandchildren Makai and Kalani Harris.

Bernice taught Kindergarten in her home for many years before kindergarten became part of the public school curriculum. Later she worked for Head Start and worked in the public schools as a teacher’s aide.

Bernice was a devote member of Zion Lutheran church, were she taught Sunday School and participated in the church circle (bible study). Bernice was a long standing member of P.E.O, and she volunteered as a Campfire leader.

Bernice had a passion for baking, and baked and enticed friends/family with her cinnamon rolls and bread. Bernice loved flowers and was known for making exquisite pressed floral stationary which she shared with family and friends up to the very end. Her artistic stationary graced many a mailbox recipient!

Please accept my most sincere sympathy for the death of your loved one. We can find comfort in the word of God because it assures us that "there is going to be a resurrection" (Acts 24:15). God promises to give life back to millions of people who have died, and he desires to do so very soon.

A servant of God from the past, Job, asked him: “If a man dies, can he live again? I will wait all the days of my compulsory service (sleep in death) until my relief comes. You (Jehovah) will call, and I (Job) will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands” (Job 14:14, 15). God is longing to give life back to those who have died.

Perhaps these words do not calm your pain reflecting on the divine promises found in the Bible will give you the hope and strength to keep going until all of God’s promises are fulfilled. May these words bring you and your family much comfort from Jehovah God, the God of all comfort (2 Corinthians 1: 3, 4.)
