It is with very heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Barbara Faye Harris Scott, 79 years old, in Meridian, MS on April 6, 2021.  She is in heaven with no more pain from her battle with cancer.   She was a devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, Mimi, and a precious soul to all who knew her.  She worked part time as the church secretary at First Baptist Church, Marion, MS, for 33 years, where she was known as Mrs. Faye.  She enjoyed spending time with her husband of 61 years, children, and grandchildren.  She loved giggling with her sisters and was also a big fan of HGTV.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Martin Lenoy Harris and Alta Wright Harris Tinsley, and grandson, Austin Scott.
