    We are so sorry to hear of Mrs. Harrell’s passing. During our many years in Victoria, she was the sweetest neighbor. She truly had a profound love for church and community. Our deepest condolences and sending love to family and friends.

    We are sad to learn of Mrs. Harrell's passing. She was such a staple in the community, wonderful Christian lady with love for everyone. She will truly be missed, but we know ET has been waiting for her to join him in heaven. We loved having her as a customer and she was so pleasant each time we went and so patient. We will miss her!! God Bless!!

    Mrs. Harrell was a blessing to many, especially those who she was able to teach a skill that is all but lost in today's world. She will be missed.

    Mrs. Harrell was such a blessing to everyone she met. I never saw her without seeing her smile.

    My deepest sympathies to Mrs Harrell's family and friends. Oh My Goodness! I have never been considered a good cook but my first year of Home EC under her tutelage in the building at the bottom of the steps at the old Victoria High School is still memorable. She taught me how to make those wonderful dinner rolls and it was actually something I became very good at during that time. God bless her. ��
