Nancy Louise Perry Harn entered this earth on Christmas Eve 1920 and left on December 6, 2014, just days short of her 94th birthday. She was delivered by her father, Dr. J.T. Perry in the front bedroom of the family home in Tulsa, and then placed in a bassinet next to the Christmas tree as a present to her five big brothers - who ranged in age from ten to twenty.
Nancy, or Louise, as she was known by many, graduated from the University of Oklahoma where she was an active member in Alpha Chi Omega. She married the love of her life, John Robert Harn, raised three kids, worked weekly with youth at Tulsa First Baptist Church, and taught junior high school math for over 25 years. She somehow also found time for hospital volunteer work. Upon her husband's death in 1995 Louise moved to San Antonio and joined Parkhills Baptist Church where she attended regularly until 13 days before her passing.
In addition to her husband, Louise was preceded in death by: an infant daughter; her parents, Dr. J.T. Perry and Edith Louise McCullough Perry; five brothers, Dr. Dan (Madge) Perry, Dr. Hugh (Lois) Perry, Ralph (Norma) Perry, Dr. James (Christine) Perry, and Dr. Fred (Elizabeth) Perry.
She is survived by: two daughters, Kathryn Louise Harn of DeLand Fla., and Nancy Lois Harn (Richard) Moser of San Antonio; son, William Robert (Susan) Harn of Broken Arrow; six grandchildren, Hilary (Jeremy) Smithee of Broken Arrow, William Robert, Jr. (Bethel) Harn of Broken Arrow, John McCullough (Trinidy) Harn of Broken Arrow, Kathryn (Zachary) Parrish of Puyallup, Wash., Jason Catts of St. Augustine, Fla., Adriane (Roddy) Matthews of Crown Point Ind.; and 16 great-grandchildren.
One of the services celebrating her life was held in San Antonio on December 11, 2014 at Parkhills Baptist Church, and another will be held in Broken Arrow, Okla., at Floral Haven Chapel on Wednesday, December 17, 2014 at 12:30 p.m. In Lieu of flowers, please make 'Gift of Love' contributions in her name to Parkhills Baptist Church, 17747 San Pedro Ave. San Antonio TX. 78232. www.floralhaven.com
