On Thursday, Feb. 17, 2022, Cynthia Ann Harris of Mansfield lost her short battle with leukemia at the age of 67. She was born March 24, 1954, in Abilene, Texas, to Lloyd and Billie Barron.
On May 27, 1972, she married Billy Wayne Harris and they resided in Mansfield for 43 years in the home where they raised their three daughters.
She is survived by her daughters: Wendy and Justin Brown and their children Jaycee, Cole and Tanner; Shari and Billy Bankston and their children Brody, Gracee and Kylee; and Carissa and Jake Williams and their children Rebecca & Evelyn. She is also survived by her mother Billie Barron and sisters Dortha Walker, Janet and Fred Winkler and Brenda and Edgar Burlison, mother-in-law Joann Harris, sister-in-law Carla and Berry Roberson, along with many nieces, nephews and a host of longtime friends.
She is preceded in death by only 354 days of her beloved husband Billy married for 49 years, her father Lloyd Barron and infant brother Dennis Barron.
Cynthia was an employee of MISD Transportation for many years until she retired to be a full time MiMi to her grandkids. In her spare time she was creative & crafty. She and Billy would build and paint crosses, wooden yard décor and custom orders upon request. In the past 12 years, she dedicated herself to her on-line digitizing business where she created digital embroidery designs for her customers.
She has been heartbroken and missed Dad dearly. We take comfort in knowing they are together again whole and healthy.
