Mary Harris Gates, 80, of Ringgold went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, October 27, 2013. She was born on March 9, 1933 in Chattanooga, Tennessee to the late, Jessie & Gertie Harris. She had lived most of her life in the Chattanooga & North Georgia areas but had also spent several years in Chicago, Illinois. She was of the Baptist faith and frequented Peach Orchard Baptist Church and is smiling down on all of us now as she dances down the "Streets of Gold". Mary loved dancing and took great pleasure and joy in being with her children. She was also preceded in death by her husband of more than 42 years, Claude Gates, Sr.; daughter, Patricia Sholtz and son, Freddy Gates.
