Carole Harris, a native of Baton Rouge, passed away on Monday, 8/30/21, at the age of 77, and is now rejoicing in Heaven. She readily shared with others her unwavering faith and hope she found through her personal relationship with Jesus. She had a loving and giving heart for her parents, her children, friends, and others she encountered that she wanted to lift up. She did this through providing meals to others, creating bouquets of beautiful fresh flowers, or sending special “pick-me-ups” to those she knew needed their day brightened. She always put others before herself and deeply loved her three children and dedicated her life to them. She loved gardening, watching the beautiful birds and hummingbirds that visited her feeders, and was an excellent cook. A graduate of St. Joseph’s Academy who also studied music at LSU, Carole was a gifted pianist who taught many students in the Baton Rouge area.
She is survived by her children Trey, Jill, and Pam, son-in-law, Bubbie, grandchildren Stephen and Lauren, and two great-grandchildren. She also is survived by her mother, Laura Claire, sister Claire, brother George, Jr., and sister-in-law, Maria, and many special cousins, extended family, and friends. She was preceded in death by her father, George Harris, Sr.
Graveside services will be held at Roselawn Cemetery on Monday, 9/13/21, at 11:00am.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Istrouma Baptist Church in Carole’s name.
