Rosylin C. Harris



Rosylin C. Harris, age 67, passed away surrounded by her family on March 15, 2017 at Cooper’s Hospital in Camden, NJ.

Born on July 28, 1949 in St. Matthews, South Carolina, she was the daughter of (late) Samuel F. Moultrie and Ethel Moultrie. Rosylin was commonly referred to as” Roz”. Rosylin graduated from Hanover Park High School, New Jersey, class of 1967 and immediately entered the modeling world.

Rosylin has always been outgoing! She was very active in her community. She did everything from being an active cheerleader, singing in a small group, to other clubs/causes that she was passionate about. She was “Sweetheart of the Year” at Stowman Field. Her father was in the military, which allowed her the opportunity to live all over the world. Of all the places she got to call home, Hawaii was her favorite! She often talked about her many fond memories of living in Hawaii.

After school she attended modeling/acting school in New York City. This was the start of her modeling career. Rosylin excelled at modeling! Such success opened the door for other opportunities; including pageantry. Rosylin loved the spotlight!

On November 14, 1971, she married (late) Horace F Harris, and continued her travels around the world for 45 years as the spouse of an army soldier. She explored various careers throughout that period: McGraw Hill, Citibank, Dillard’s, Sak’s Fifth Avenue just to name a few. Her favorite job though, was spending time with her family. She loved to attend field trips, volunteer in the classroom and to be at home when her kids returned at the end of the day.

Rosylin was a beautiful, sophisticated, fun woman. She loved her family, people and most importantly, she loved Jehovah. As one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, she loved Jehovah God and his worldwide association. She had friends ALL over the world! She enjoyed being busy in teaching others about Jehovah and His Son, Jesus Christ using God’s Word, the Bible. She enjoyed having a great time. Whether it was playing games, dancing, or singing karaoke, if it was fun, she wanted to be a part of it!
