Mary Alice Harris, age 65, passed away Friday, Nov. 6, 2020.  She was born Nov. 11, 1954, to William L. and Camilla (Hunter) Harris, who preceded her in death.

Mary, a disabled person, lived with her parents in Yellow Springs and in Xenia  until 2005, when she took up residence at Union Christel Manor in Union City, Ohio.  There she attended Art Space, where she avidly participated in life skills training such as cooking and money management, and in art skills such as painting.  She was also a star bowler on the bowling team.   

Mary was dearly loved by her family, the UCM staff and her friends, and she will be greatly missed. She is survived by her brother, William J. Harris, and his wife, Susan; her niece, Kate E. Harris; and her great-niece, Emma Sophia Cuevas, all of Brooklyn, N.Y. 

She will be privately interred at Glen Forest Cemetery in Yellow Springs.  Arrangements are in care of McColaugh Funeral Home.

    I remember Mary as a child and her parents who had run and I think owned the bowling alley in Yellow Springs. Her parents were super great and supportive of her, and although there was almost a 5 year gap in our ages, I remember Miss Camilla bringing her to our home so she would have other children to play with. When your young, you don’t immediately know a difference; she’s just another kid. She is in Gods memory.
