Barbara Ann Harris, 78, of Moundsville, WV, passed away peacefully, with family by her side on Thursday, June 8, 2023, at Liza’s Place, after a hard battle with spinal cancer.

She was born September 24, 1944, in Wheeling, WV, a daughter of the late William and Stella (Gayda) Druschel. Barbara was a 1962 proud graduate of Central Catholic High School and then attended Nursing School where she obtained her LPN. She moved to Norfolk, VA and worked in one of the first cardiac care units at DePaul Hospital. Barbara returned home to the Valley and continued her work at OVMC where she retired from after 48 years of service. She was a member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church and was an avid reader, crafter, crocheter, and huge Sci-Fi fan. Barbara was extremely family oriented and her grandchildren were her whole world.

In addition to her parents she is preceded in death by her son, Jeffery M. Harris; an infant sister, Stella Gayda; her brother, Bill Druschel and close cousins, Frank and Clara.

Barbara is survived by her daughter, Monica (Matthew) Miller of Moundsville; her sister, Lois Druschel of Moundsville; her grandchildren, Morgan and Maitlyn Miller of Moundsville; her nephew, Christopher (Amy) Druschel of Wheeling.

Family and friends will be received Monday, June 12, 2023 from 2-4 pm & 6 pm until time of service at 7:30 pm at Altmeyer Funeral Homes, Lutes & Kirby-Vance Chapel, 118 Grant Ave.

I had the pleasure of working with Barb at OVMC-she was a hard working lady who put her heart into all she did.
