Evelyn “Sno” Pauline (nee Scott) Harris of Townsend went to be with the Lord, August 23, 2008 after a short illness, at the age of 71.

Born in Georgetown on September 4, 1936, she was the daughter of the late Harvey and Evelyn (Getshall) Scott Sr.

Evelyn enjoyed a wide variety of employment and volunteer adventures throughout her lifetime, including New Castle Farmer’s Market book store, M&M Diner, the Hearth Restaurant and later in life, she became a Certified Nursing Assistant at Churchman’s Village.

She was an active volunteer at Wilmington Manor Volunteer Fire Company for over 10 years, serving a term as President of the Ladies Auxiliary. She also served as an active volunteer and life member of Sergeant William Lloyd Nelson VFW Post 3792. She was an avid bingo player, where her husband called bingo, which they enjoyed to the very end.

In addition to her parents, Evelyn was preceded in death by her younger brother, John Frank Scott.

Evelyn is survived by her husband, Douglas A Harris Sr. of Townsend with whom she recently celebrated her 40th wedding anniversary. In addition, she is survived by seven children, Evelyn (nee Keith) Liddicoat (Doug), Katie (nee Harris) Gearinger (Mitch), Patty (nee Keith) Cannon, Sherri (Harris) Leslie (Roger), Laurie (Harris) Logan (Mike), Douglas A.

The family invites friends to join in a celebration of her life and memorial service on Friday, August 29 at 11 a.m., at the Delaware Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery Chapel, 2465 Chesapeake City Road, Bear.  There will be a gathering at VFW Post 3792, 5695 Summit Bridge Road, Townsend, immediately following.

The family wishes to express their appreciation for the exceptional care provided by Christiana Care Hospital and Broadmeadow Health Care Facility.
