Kathy Harris

February 18, 1958 — August 23, 2022




Kathy Harris was born on February 18th 1958. To the parents of John Wesley and Johnny Mae Harris. Who has passed before her.


Kathy was a fifth child and made sure everyone knew she was a baby of the bunch.


Kathy accepted the Lord at the early age. She grew up in South Central Los Angeles where she attended, Russell Elementary Bethune, Carver Junior High School, and Fremont High School.


Kathy was an outspoken person with a personality like no other, might I add she loved fashion, clothes, and makeup, so she attended Cosmetology School where she received her degree.


She loved to play cards with her siblings, she also loved cooking, baking, and dancing. She was also silly and had a smile that could brighten up a room.


In 1978 she gave birth to her first-born child, Dana Adams. Followed by Francis Wil­liams, Louie Wroten Jr, Victoria Wroten Bernadette Wroten, Linda Wroten Michael Wroten, and the baby of the bunch Michelle Johnson. She still had a lot to give, and the Lord blessed her with two stepchildren, Darren and Danielle Wroten, and a son that she called her own, Palani Hokoana Sr.


Kathy’s battle with cancer was a fierce one. Now if you knew Kathy, you knew that she wasn’t going to go without a fight and she fought for as long as she could. Cancer may have won the battle of the body, but Kathy won the war, spiritually because it never broke her.


On August 23rd 2022 at 9:00 p.m. the Good Lord called her home. Her baby brother Akim Harris, who passed in 1994 was there at heaven’s gates ready to receive her.


Kathy leaves to cherish her memory, her beautiful eight children, whom she cherished and loved dearly with all her heart. Her three stepchildren, twenty-seven grandchildren and five great-grand­children. Her big brother Danny Harris, two brothers-in-law, Kenneth Minor and James Coates. Three sisters, Sharon Minor, Rena Hamilton and Johnetta Powell, her big cous­in Dimples, who was more like a sister to her. The man she loved, Bruce and a host of nieces and nephews, cousins, and friends.


Somethings we will never be able to understand, like why such a beautiful soul had to go so soon but we know for sure is that she loved with everything she had, that she was loved by all her family, and it was an honor to have known her.
