Barbara Mae (Olsen) Harris

May 28, 1932 ~ August 2, 2021 (age 89)


Age 89, of Mt. Lebanon PA, formerly of New Bern, NC, surrounded by loved ones, on Monday, August 2, 2021. Beloved wife for 24 years of John H. Harris; devoted mother of Patti (Mike) Konrad, David (Kathy) Torrence, and Dianne (Matt) Helinski; loving grandmother of Paul (Jill), Katie (Oskar Karst), 2ndLt. David, and Walter Konrad; Alison (Tim) Greiving; Caleb (Caitlin) and "Awesome" Abram Torrence; Matthew and Mia Helinski; Hendrix, Foster, and Page Harris; great-grandmother of Christian, Lily, and Claire Konrad; and Henry Torrence; sister of the late Grace Wehe; stepmother of John (Tasha), Jimmy (Robin), and Lewis (Mushin) Harris. She was one of the few people in this country to have had a verified UFO sighting in New York City. She was proud of her Norwegian heritage and loved her parents and family dearly. Simple pleasures like family time, camping, arts and crafts, reading, whistling, tending pets--even wild ones, like a racoon, a squirrel, and finding unique presents for loved ones filled her days. She loved the beach life of catching fish and collecting shells. Babies gave her much joy, and she was happiest when she was sure her family was okay. Her wacky sense of humor will be greatly missed. The family wanted to gratefully acknowledge the staff of Family Hospice and Palliative Care at Canterbury Place.
