She believed family came first and spent her life caring for those she loved. Her sweet and gentle spirit made you feel like you were one of her own.

Harrison; her children, Elaine & Winston Moore and Keith & Cheryl Harrison, all of Climax; her sister, Maurice Connell of Reno, GA; her grandchildren, Christy & Elliot Marsh and Billy Moore; and her great-grandchildren, Adison, Annalee and Cole.
