Born: April 24, 1936, to Claud Rather Harmon and Lonnie Bell Sharp Harmon. Nona’s parents were schoolteachers, so she became a school teacher. Nona was devoted to teaching and education. She taught kindergarten in multiple private and public-school systems around Texas before retiring from Harleton ISD in 1990.
Every morning was spent praying for others and reading her bible. Nona loved to cook, bake and cake decorate.

She would lead Sunday school when asked and would always be available to help in the after school or summer programs. She was passionate about service to God and being dedicated to others.
John 11:25 - Jesus said to Martha, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Though we are sad we rejoice in the scripture: Nona left this world to be with her Savior on Oct 18, 2023.
