Jeannine Helen Harris went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on January 18, 2021 in San Antonio, TX after a brief illness. She was born on February 16, 1929 to the late Henry A. and Laura M. (Cramer) Wyant of Valatie, NY. She is predeceased by her husband, Charles T. "Chubby" Harris. She is survived by 5 children; Charlene Heintz (Doug) of San Antonio, TX; Caroline "Cuppy" Mendoza (Rick) of San Antonio, TX; Charles "Duke" Harris (Joan) of Schodack Landing, NY; Cathleen Malmberg (Eric) of Loganville, GA; and LeRoy Harris (Mikki) of Spartanburg, SC. She is also survived by 15 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and friends. She met Chubby, the love of her life, while he was working for her father, and they were married on July 8, 1948. She lived in the house Chubby built for her until 2019 when she moved to San Antonio to be near her daughters. She was a long-time member of the Reformed Dutch Church of Schodack at Muitzeskill where she served in many capacities including singing in the choir, serving on the Consistory and The Women's Guild, teaching Vacation Bible School, helping with the Cooperative Christian Ministry of Schodack (CCMS/The Anchor) and in many other areas when needed. She loved and was loved by everyone she met, always welcoming everyone into her modest home for a wonderful home-cooked meal and a lively round of Jeopardy! A graveside service will be held at a later date TBA. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in her memory to The Reformed Dutch Church of Schodack at Muitzeskill, VITAS Hospice San Antonio, TX, and Guiding Eyes for the Blind.
