Obituary for Billie Sue Harris

Billie Sue Harris, 70, of Altus, passed away peacefully at her home in Altus Saturday, January 17, 2009, with her family at her side.
Sue was born August 16, 1938, in Gould, Oklahoma, to Othar and Ethel (Faith) Stephens. She grew up in Gould and attended the Gould Schools until her junior year. Her family moved to Amarillo, Texas, during her senior year. She met the love of her life, Robert E. Harris, and they married June 16, 1956, in Amarillo. She and Bob moved to Altus and owned and operated the paddleboat concessions at Quartz Mountain State Park near Altus for twenty-five years. She was also a homemaker and loved to quilt with her many friends. Her greatest joy was spending time on what she called "fun days" with her grandchildren and the many others in her life. Sue was a member of the First Baptist Church in Altus.
