Mimi E. Fitz Harris

Greece: December 26, 2018 went home to be with the Lord. She is predeceased by her beloved husband, Major Richard J. Fitz Harris II; sister, Mary Berenice Behr; brother, Chauncey A. Doxtater Jr. Survived by her son, Richard J. Fitz Harris III of Chicago; many loving nieces and nephews.

After graduating from Nazareth Academy, she met and fell in love with Major Richard and married him in the Post Chapel in Nashville, TN. Mimi and Richard traveled all thru the Southern States for 19 years in the Army. After Richard retired, she joined Avon Products, Inc. of NY as a Rochester City Manager and she retired in 1977 as a District manager, which enabled them to travel and spend time in many countries. In the winter months, she enjoyed spending time in their Florida home.

Mimi joined the Catholic Women’s Club of Rochester, the Women’s Guild of Vero Beach, the Palm Beach Diocese of Catholic Women, the Republican Women’s Federated of Indian River County, Fl., The Red Cross Volunteers of Fl. and was a volunteer for more than 40 years at her church, Our Mother of Sorrows. Mimi loved spending time with her husband traveling and her many friends near and far.
