Barbara Jean (Harris) Bryant

May 9, 1938 — February 13, 2024


Mrs. Barbara Jean (Harris) Bryant, age 85, was called home by our Heavenly Father on Tuesday, February 13, 2024. Barbara was born on May 9, 1938, in Harriman, TN, and graduated from Harriman High School. Barbara married the love of her life on December 13, 1958, and three years later they welcomed their firstborn, Renee', and then six years later welcomed their twins, Rebecca and Regina. Barbara worked in banking for many years but her most important and rewarding accomplishment was her being a wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and homemaker. Barbara enjoyed reading, cross stitch, gardening, candle-wicking, playing dominoes, and playing games on her iPad. Barbara was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Barbara spent over 40 years researching family genealogy and loved the challenge it presented at times. Barbara is preceded in death by her parents: Curtis Elmore Harris & Virginia Margaret Powers Harris, & 4 sisters.
