In Loving Memory of Donna Marie Harris: 1962-2022


Donna Marie Harris, formerly of Centralia, Washington, passed away on Dec. 3, 2022, at the age of 60. She was born Feb. 12, 1962 to Overton Thornton and Fay (Robert) Berry. Donna is survived by her children Nicholas (Rebekah) Engle, Statia (Matthew) Barrett and Trevor Engle; grandchildren Malachi Engle, Conley Barrett, Elizabeth Barrett, Michael Barrett and June Engle; sister Susanna (Ron) Sturza; stepsiblings Robert Berry II and Gwenda Brown; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Donna was full of life. Her laughter was infectious and her smile would light up the room. She was sacrificial, especially for those that she loved, and always put others above herself. She taught all three of her children what it meant to be a loving parent and made sure they were always provided for even during times that she had so little. Donna was a bright spot in this world and brought joy to so many.

A celebration of life will be held in memory of Donna in Centralia, Washington. Details will be announced at a later date.
