Forever remembered, forever loved, our dear Victoria Darnette Harris Edwards, entered Our Father’s Heavenly home, Christmas morning, December 25, 2020. “Vickie”, as she was affectionately known, was born January 3, 1967 in Stanly County, North Carolina. She was the daughter of Reverend Althea Washington Harris and the late Howard L. Harris Sr. “Vickie” had a sweet spirit and possessed qualities of warmth and endearment. Our Lord and Savior has given us a tender touch to comfort us in our sorrow as we mourn “Vickie’s” loss. He has covered us with Angel wings; and has welcomed “Vickie” into His Kingdom.

“Vickie” was educated in the Stanly County public schools and graduated in the class of 1985 from North Stanly High School, New London, North Carolina. She received her cosmetology certification from Empire Cosmetology School, Concord, North Carolina. “Vickie” was a talented and gifted hair stylist. She enjoyed her profession, and always gave her best as she created masterful hair styles. She was also employed with Honda Parts, Burlington, North Carolina.

She accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior at an early age and joined First Baptist Church, New London, where she was a life-long member. “Vickie” was a member of the Usher Board, Missionary Auxiliary, Junior and Young-Adult Choirs. In her leisure, she enjoyed creating new hairstyles, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.

Her father, Howard L. Harris Sr., preceded her in death.
