Carole W. Harris, of Birmingham, passed away at home on Dec. 19.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Homer Lee White and Stacy D. White; her sister, Sue W. DeFriese. Carole is survived by her spouse, Dan A. Harris, Jr., her high school sweetheart; her brothers, (Ret.) Rev. Byron L. White and Donald H. White, and her sister, Alice W. Shook.

Harris was a graduate of Sylacauga High School in 1951. As a talented pianist, she was crowned Miss Sylacauga of 1950 and a Top 10 Finalist in Miss Alabama at the age of 18. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and a thoughtful friend. She enjoyed cooking, raising her daughters, playing with her grandchildren, and donating her time and talents to others. Carole was a member of First United Methodist Church of Center Point for fifty-three years, where she served on several committees, including president of UMW. She was a huge fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide. She followed her husband to Tuscaloosa, Dothan (twice), Montgomery (twice), and then to Birmingham as he was transferred by his employer, PPG Industries.
