OBITUARY: Donna Louise Harris


Donna Louise Harris, age 75 of Burns, Tennessee passed away on Friday, March 22, 2024.

Loving mother, grandmother, and devoted wife, Donna Louise Harris passed away on March 22, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of love and kindness that will forever be cherished by those who had the privilege of knowing her.

Donna was born on June 30, 1948, and from that day forward, she filled the lives of her family and friends with joy and laughter. She had a heart as big as the sky and a smile that could light up even the darkest of days. Her unwavering love and dedication to her family knew no bounds, and she always put their needs above her own.

As a mother, Donna was a constant source of comfort and support. She embraced the role with grace and endless patience, guiding her children with wisdom and warmth. Her love knew no limits, and she always made sure her family felt cherished and valued.

Donna’s grandson held a special place in her heart, and she delighted in showering him with affection and spoiling him every chance she got. He will forever treasure the memories he shared with his beloved grandmother.

Throughout her life, Donna was a devoted wife who stood by her partner through thick and thin. Her marriage was a true testament to the power of love and commitment, serving as an inspiration to all who knew them.

Donna’s career as a flight attendant with Delta Airlines allowed her to travel the world and touch countless lives with her warmth and kindness. Her graceful presence and caring nature made her not just a great colleague but also a dear friend to many.

In addition to her aviation career, Donna poured her heart into her own business, where she shared her love for antiques with others. Her keen eye for unique pieces and dedication to preserving history through collectibles will always be remembered.

Outside of work, Donna found joy in simple pleasures. Her love for antiques extended beyond business, as she spent hours scouring for treasures and sharing stories behind each item. Gardening was another passion of hers – a way to stay connected to nature and find peace in the beauty of flowers blooming under her care.

Donna enjoyed spending time with her dear friends at the antique mall. The laughter shared, the tales told, and the memories made together will forever hold a special place in their hearts.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
