Florene Wood Barker Harris
1928 - 2014

Florene Wood Barker Harris, 85, long time resident of Nocona and the sister of Kathy Wilkinson of Iowa Park, passed away Thursday, April 3, at Advanced Rehabilitation Center in Bowie.

A graveside service will be held in Bryson, Texas, at a later date.

Florene was born on July 21, 1928, to Hugh Robert Wood and Beulah Harrison Wood in Kent County. She supported local and national animal organizations on their behalf. She enjoyed attending concerts, until the last few years, Elvis, The Rolling Stones, and Willie Nelson, were just a few. She was especially fond of Elvis and had an extensive collection of Elvis memorabilia.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her baby brother, Hugh Russell Wood; and her husband, Prentis Harris.

Other survivors include: a son Glenn Barker of Nocona; two grandchildren; and a great-granddaughter.
