    Daphne, my heart is broken, I’ll miss your smile and your laughter. You’ll be missed by so many of us who loved you. You were an excellent teacher and educator. your dedication to our students, your special knowledge and skills as a Math teacher, helped make Johnson Park Middle school come alive and be honored as one of the highest performing schools in Ohio. Thank you for all you gave us, as a teacher and then administrator; now it is time to rest my dear friend. I love you, your former principal and friend forever, Marvenia E. Bosley

    • I am a previous student of Daphne Harris. By far, my favorite teacher of all time. I haven’t spoken to her in a few years. What happened to cause her passing? She was so young. I will forever remember her smile, her laughter, and how she would light up a room. I’m so sad to hear of this. Prayers to you and those who loved her.

    Sister Dr. Daphne A. Harris’ family,

    Our family prayer is that God grant each of you comfort, peace and strength on today and the many days to come.  Upon my wife sharing with me Sister Harris’ passing, quickly I was shocked and became sad then God reminded me of the following scriptures: “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.” 2 Corinthians 5:8-9:  We bear witness that Sister Harris was a committed, confident and unapologetic ambassador of our Savior Jesus Christ.   I hear God saying to our beloved Sister Harris:  “His Lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” Matthew 25

    We shall forever remember and have fond memories of our beloved friend Sister Harris due to her many years of genuine Christian friendship and love extended to us during our residency in Columbus, Ohio especially when we all were members at 7th Avenue Community Missionary Baptist Church.  Sister Harris was richly blessed by God blessed with many talents including (but not limited to) oratory, ability to exegesis scriptures, teaching and the compassion to love others. 

    God bless you Sister Harris on a life well lived and may the life you lived speak for you. Thank you for the ever-living positive impact you had on our family.  We shall forever Love and remember you.  Rest In Peace our beloved Sister you have earned your angelic wings!

  7. I am totally shook over this loss. I was a student of hers at Johnson park. I would reach out to her over the years. What a beautiful soul . Her smile and laugh I will forever remember. I wish I knew what caused her passing at such a young age. Prayers to her family.

  8. Just found out!! So sad! From elementary to high school! Fellow Mustangs and Buckeyes!! Always remember the dimples and laughter! Rest well, rest well!!

    I am a former student of Miss Harris when she taught at Starling Junior High School! She was my absolute favorite teacher of all time! We’d go to movies together outside of school and she’d often take me under her wing in some of the more difficult times in my life. I just happened to do a Google search for her to find this news. Dr. Harris forever touched my heart and I look forward to seeing her again someday on the other side . God bless her family and friends!
