Eva Whitmore met Mr. Floyd Harris, Jr. in Winona, Texas and later united in holy matrimony in 1958. To this union, three daughters were born.
After retiring from Western Electric, Eva devoted her time managing her cosmetology business, and spending time with family cooking and baking masterful dishes.
Eva accepted Christ at an early age, and was a faithful member of North Glenn Heights Church of Christ in Glenn Heights, Texas. Eva also received communion at home before her health failed. Eva then resided at Crestview Rehabilitation Center in Cedar Hill, Texas.
