Obituaries » Arlene B. Harms

Francis Arlene Buchanan Harms, 81, of Amissville, passed away on October 4, 2018, at her home.

She was born May 16, 1937, in Auburn, Illinois, to the late William Thomas Buchanan and Christina Pearl Rowland Buchanan. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Clarence “Bud” Harms, and her son, Peter Thomas Harms.

Mrs. Harms worked at The Fauquier Bank for many years and then with AT&T until her retirement. After retirement, she and her husband established Flint Springs Vineyard at their home. She was a longtime active member of Our Saviour Lutheran Church in Warrenton, serving on the Altar Guild and as a Eucharistic Minister. She was a volunteer at Fauquier Health and Rehabilitation Center, enjoyed quilting with various local groups and was an avid doll collector.

She is survived by her children, Dawn Rutledge of Rixeyville, Tim Harms of Marshall, Jennifer Harms of Falls Church and Adam Harms of Amissville; a sister, Donna Goodroe of Auburn, Illinois; 10 grandchildren, and two great grandchildren.

The family will receive friends from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, October 9, at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton. A memorial service will take place at 11 a.m. Wednesday, October 10, at Our Saviour Lutheran Church, 6194 Dumfries Road, Warrenton, followed by a reception. Interment will be at 2 p.m. at Little Fork Burying Ground near Rixeyville.
