Sheila Ann Harris entered to eternal rest on Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020 at her home surrounded by her family in Edmond, OK. She was born on August 13, 1950 to Peggy Jean Tyre and James Harrison Armstrong, Jr in Dallas, Texas.

Sheila and Gordon’s hearts were knit together from the time that they first met Aug 16, 1987 when she asked him to dance. They were married December 22, 1995 in Las Vegas, Nevada at a drive through chapel. They created many years of wonderful memories together while traveling across the country as owner operators with FedEx Custom Critical.

After retiring, she enjoyed living at their lake house in Quinlan, TX. She enjoyed fishing, boating, riding her ATV, cooking, gardening, sewing, and spending time with family and friends. She loved Elvis and listening to her classic 50’s music, and she never missed an opportunity to play a game of Skip-Bo or dominos. Once her health declined, she spent her spare time playing Pogo games on her computer and phone while watching old movies and musicals. On Feb 28, 2019 Sheila and Gordon moved to Edmond to their new home with their son Bryan and his family.

Sheila was preceded in death by her parents. Peggy (Richard) Chote, James Armstrong Jr. She is survived by her husband, Gordon W. Harris; children, Monica (Leon) Barrington, Bryan (Diane) Bishop; step-children, Richard Harris, David (Tamara) Harris, Robin (Jason) Day, Melissa Harris; sibling, Rejeana Littles (John Jeansonne); grandchildren, Crystal Sallings, Deanna Barrington, Brooke Bishop, Jacob Barrington, Brayden Bishop, Monta Hodges, Jacob Hodges, Riley Hodges, Zachery Harris, Cameron Harris, Ashton Harris, Kyle Harris, Natalie Harris, Blake Freeman, Hunter Day ; numerous great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews; and her dog, Toby.

    Let me express our deepest love and condolences to all her family and friends from all the Cline family.

  6. I only had a short time to become friends with Ms. Sheila and Gordon. I bought a home just a couple down from theirs in Quinlan. They were very sweet and kind. I am so sorry for the loss of the sweet lady. Prayers for Gordon and the family and friends. I will miss the phone calls and texts.
