Linda Harper Harris

July 29, 1942 — April 22, 2019

Linda Harper Harris, age 76, passed away on April 22, 2019, due to complications from cancer and heart failure in Houston, Texas. She was born on July 29, 1942, in San Angelo, Texas to Lloyd and Dean Harper. She married the love of her life, Bobby Gerald Harris, on August 6, 1979. She was preceded in death by Bobby, her parents, brother Ray Harper, and her grandson Jeffery.

When she married Bobby, she lovingly accepted the role of mother to his 3 children in addition to the 4 children she had. She chose to love them as her own, and they all loved her dearly. As one of her grandchildren wrote in a tribute to her, “She definitely loved all her children. Her step children were nothing less than her children; she loved each one of them unconditionally.” Proverbs 31:28-Her children rise up and call her blessed.

Linda loved people and never met a stranger. Every kid in the neighborhood loved coming to Linda and Bobby Law’s house to play and visit. She loved dreaming big dreams. But mostly, loved fulfilling them through the lives of her children and grandchildren. She had a strong sense of duty as a wife and a mother and loved doing both. Above all, she loved the Lord.

Her life was a living example of one of her favorite Bible verses, Ephesians 4:32-“And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.”

She is survived by her children Lloyd Bliznak, Rex Bliznak, Barbara Bliznak and boyfriend James Lyon, Candi Hughlett and husband Ron, Brandi Killam, Sue Boggs and husband Jon, and Jody Harris and wife Nina, her sister Carolyn Killion, brother Dan Harper and partner Dave, Dennis and wife Dee. She is also survived by 9 wonderful grandchildren; Mallory, Malena, Emily, Jennifer, Chrissy, Victoria, Taylor, Trent, Tori, and Ryan. She had an amazing 11 great grandchildren with 2 more on the way. Family and friends know that she would be heartbroken if her beloved dog, Mitzi Joy, wasn’t included.
