Mrs. Harmon was born August 16,1938 in Iredell County to Harold D. and Lacie Bowman Jolly. Upon graduating high school, Mrs Harmon, married her “childhood crush”, Troy Harmon Jr. or as known to friends (T.G.) They lived in several cities before his company moved them to Wilkesboro in the early 70s. It was here that Mrs Harmon settled in and was able to make a wonderful life for her family. She worked in banking for a number of years and retired in 1992. She loved meeting and talking with her customers and they became family and friends to her. Mrs. Harmon was a member of Wilkesboro United Methodist Church for 46 years. She sang in the choir, was a member of the Ecclesia Sunday School Class and served on various committees throughout the years. She was also a volunteer in her community. Mrs. Harmon loved her family and always enjoyed time spent with all of the grandchildren. She loved every occasion that brought an opportunity to “celebrate” the beautiful things in life! She was a wonderful baker and shared her many delicious confections with others, especially her Chocolate Cake. You never left her home without either eating a piece of cake or taking a piece with you for later. She was a beautiful caring person and always looked for the best in every situation and every person. Heaven gained a beautiful soul!

She was preceded in death by her parents, a brother; Richard Jolly and a son-in-law; Kirk Shelton
