YOUNGSTOWN - Helen L. Harris, 91, passed away peacefully in her sleep early Tuesday morning, Jan. 9, 2018, at Park Vista in Youngstown.

Helen was born May 14, 1926, in Cleveland, a daughter of the late Pedro and Pearl Leonard Sanchez, and came to this area with her family as a child.

Helen attended Fitch High School and worked various jobs, including work at Commercial Shearing and for Omni Manor Health Care.

She was a proud member of the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma and was proud of the fact that her children and grandchildren are also members. She was a great cook and was known for her delicious homemade enchiladas and tortillas by her family and friends. She loved bingo, and enjoyed all the activities at Park Vista.

(Liz) Harris of Fort Myers Beach, Fla., David (Kathy) Harris of Youngstown, Debra Phillips of Youngstown, and Robert S. Harris of Youngstown; eight grandchildren, Paul, Joe, Eric, Michael, Alexis, Amber, Austin, and Isaiah; and a brother, James Sanchez of Youngstown.

Her husband, James R. Harris Sr., died in 1971. Besides her husband, Helen was preceded in death by a grandson, James Harris III; a sister, Geraldine Barnett; and three brothers, Frank, Dave, and Louie Sanchez.

Family and friends may call from noon to 1:30 p.m., Friday, Jan. 12, at Kinnick Funeral Home, 477 N. Meridian Road, Youngstown, where funeral services will take place at 1:30 p.m.
