Pa­tri­cia Ann (Jack­sonHar­ris) Case

Times Standard (Eureka) - - LOCAL NEWS -

Born Au­gust 10, 1943. Tran­si­tioned on June 10, 2020 com­fort­ably. Mom was 76 years of age, hav­ing bat­tled re­cur­ring lung cancer and Parkin­sons.

Mom was born in Eureka, Cal­i­for­nia but also spent many years in Ar­cata, hav­ing grown up on old Ar­cata Road. She of­ten spoke fondly of her won­der­ful child­hood.

An­i­mals and 4-H kept her busy. She at­tended Wor­thing­ton Ele­men­tary, Eureka Ju­nior High and grad­u­ated Eureka Se­nior High School in 1961. She re­ceived her AA de­gree from Col­lege of the Red­woods and a BA from Hum­boldt State Univer­sity, ma­jor­ing in Early Child­hood Ed­u­ca­tion.

Mom was a lov­ing and kind per­son. She loved ba­bies, started and worked over 25 years for Hum­boldt Child­care. She directed and was head teacher for many years there, in ad­di­tion to hav­ing had a few years op­er­at­ing her own fam­ily home day­care.

Mom is sur­vived by her son, Bob Har­ris, along with her daugh­ters Sandy Lake and Sherri Hal­lett. She al­ways con­sid­ered her son­sin law, Ralph Lake and Mike Hal­lett, as well her daugh­ter-in-law Carol Har­ris, as if they were her own.

Mom was a very car­ing and lov­ing grand­mother to her grand­chil­dren Mikayla Har­ris, Talon Barn­hart, Adam and Cory Hal­lett. She loved her Grand­chil­dren deeply, es­pe­cially at times when she had them all to­gether. Fa­vorite times with them in­cluded cook­ing, play­ing games, and an oc­ca­sional slum­ber party.

Ad­di­tion­ally, mom dearly loved hav­ing many nieces and neph­ews, and many friends.

She is pre­ceded in death by her par­ents Glenn and Mary Jack­son and by her late brother Bob Jack­son, her only sib­ling.

She re­tired to Red­ding from Eureka in year 2000 to be closer to her youngest child Bob and brand-new, at the time, grand­daugh­ter Mikayla Har­ris. She made a beau­ti­ful life there by join­ing churches, do­ing craft fairs, while mak­ing good friends in the process.

Mom loved God and keep­ing busy. Her and my step­dad Rich taught Sun­day School, and were Sun­day School Su­per­in­ten­dents for many years. We drove from Ar­cata to Eureka First Bap­tist Church every Sun­day. In the sum­mer­time, camp­ing at Griz­zly Creek State Park was our fa­vorite des­ti­na­tion rain or shine.

We love and miss you Mom. We will see you again in Heaven. Thanks for be­ing our Mom. We will miss the home­made sticky buns on Christ­mas morn­ing. You were the best.

Thank you, Quartz Hill Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and Hos­pice of Red­ding, for your kind­ness and love.

There will be no im­me­di­ate ser­vices due to Covid19 health con­cerns. Cards may be sent to Sandy and Ralph Lake at 3243 Hiler St., Eureka, Cal­i­for­nia 95503.

Mom, all your an­gels and frogs (For­ever Rely on God) will be with you in Heaven.
