Sylvia 'Cookie' Harris

Pro-Life Leader, Loving Mother, and Devoted Wife Passed Away August 28, 2014


It is with heavy hearts that we announce our dear friend and coworker Cookie Harris passed away on Thursday, August 28.

Cookie was the mother of five children and the devoted wife of Congressman Dr. Andy Harris for more than 30 years.  Harris currently represents Maryland's First Congressional District. 

Cookie was a tireless pro-life leader who managed Maryland Right to Life's booth at the State Fair each year.  

She served as the Director of Special Events for Maryland Right to Life and organized four major banquets and three state conventions.

Additionally, Cookie spent many hours working at the Pregnancy Center North empowering women to choose life for their unborn babies.  She was a much-loved member of the Maryland pro-life community.  She will be greatly missed.

House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio offered thoughts and prayers to the Harris family via Twitter, calling Sylvia Harris, "A devoted mother & powerful voice for the unborn."
