Delores Louise Harris was born December 29, 1939 in Wake County, North Carolina to the late Kirthmon Dozier Sr. and Bessie Wheeler Dozier Riddick. After Kirthmon's passing, Charlie Riddick raised Delores as his own. Delores departed this life on Monday, January 30, 2017.

Delores was affectionately known as "Lois or LuLu" and was raised and educated in North Carolina. She graduated from Berry O'Kelly High School, June 1958, where she was voted "most dignified" in her senior year. She moved from North Carolina to New Jersey to pursue a career in the medical field. While in New Jersey, she was employed as a live-in care taker for several families in the area.

In 1962, Delores returned to North Carolina to start raising her family. While in North Carolina, she fell in love and married Thomas R. Harris Sr. Delores and Thomas briefly relocated to New York city and although they had their share of ups and downs, she loved him dearly until his death in 1999. Shortly after moving to New York City, Delores decided to follow her sisters Mable and Ella Mae who she loved dearly. Delores settled in Danbury and worked for many years for Dayton Rogers and Davis & Geck. Subsequently, Delores went back to the medical field before retiring.

Delores loved to travel, although she was afraid to fly, her fear did not keep her from boarding a plane and visiting San Antonio, TX, Los Angeles, California, Seattle, Washington and Cancun, Mexico. Not even an illness could stop her from being the jet-setter she was at heart.

She was a faithful member of Gospel Light Apostolic church where she served as a Deaconess and Sunday school teacher, under the leadership of Elder Glenn Dansby for twenty years. She will be remembered as a sweet and gracious "Woman of God".

Delores was one of 12 children and was the baby girl. She was preceded in death by her husband Thomas R. Harris Sr, six sisters Mabel Lee Vance, Ella Mae Ashe, Pattie V. Dozier, Lillian Hunter, Agnes Cooke, Vinnie Fort three brothers Charlie Riddick Jr., Kirthmon Dozier Jr., James Riddick, one grand son-in-law Curtis R. Torres Sr. and two stepsons, Tyrone Harris and Thomas Harris.

Delores is survived by two daughters Angela R. Moses (Alfred) of Silver Spring, MD, and Michele E. Harris (Edward) of Danbury, CT, one son Karl G. Dozier of NY. She is also survived by two sisters Rosabelle Thornton-Jones of Raleigh, NC, and Eula Finney of Boundbrook, NJ, one brother William Moses Riddick of San Antonio, TX, four Grandchildren Alfred E. Moses III, Alexis T. Moses of Silver Spring, MD and TiAra F. Harris, Tory J. Sullivan of Danbury, CT, and one Great Grandson, Curtis R. Torres Jr. of Danbury, CT.
