Elizabeth Ann Harris


Elizabeth Ann Harris entered her heavenly home on Sunday, Oct. 25, 2020.

She is survived in death by her loving husband of 60 years, Zane B. Harris Sr.; their three children: Beebo and Marcia Harris, Anna Harris Moody, all of Cleveland, and Missy and Patrick Priest of Riceville; grandchildren: MaryBeth Baker, Meagan Frye, Matthew Moody, Joel and Kassidy Moody of Cleveland, Patrick Priest, Hunter and Sydney Priest and Garrett Priest of Riceville; and great-grandchildren: Bo Baker, Dawson Satterfield, Joey Frye and Palmer Moody of Cleveland.

She was the daughter of the late Thomas A. Pannell III and Aline L. Ledford.

She is also survived by her brother, Butch and Marty Pannell of Sale Creek; sister, Jaqueline L. Pannell of Cleveland; and a loving sister-in-law, Wanda Albritton of Signal Mountain. She leaves behind several nieces, nephews, special friends, very special neighbors and other children, Connie and Greg Hooper, who she loved like her own.

She was a stay-at-home wife and mother who took pride in her family. The one thing that gave her the most pleasure was being Nana. She was adored by all her grandchildren. She made each one feel special.

Elizabeth was a master seamstress and loved to make her children, grandchildren and friends’ clothes through the years.

She had a heart for others and loved to help those in need. She was known for her ability to make you laugh and feel loved. She was an avid reader and kept up with things going on in the world.

She lived her faith by example, doing for others and putting others first. She was a member of the First Baptist Church in Cleveland for 50-plus years.

The Rev. Jim Gibson and the Rev. Todd Stevison will be officiating the service. Nana’s pallbearers will be her grandsons, great-grandsons and Greg Hooper.

There will be a graveside service at Sunset Memorial Gardens on Sunday, Nov. 1, 2020, at 2 p.m.

The family invites everyone who wants to celebrate her life to attend.

For those unable to attend the graveside, Elizabeth’s visitation will be on Saturday, from 1 to 3 p.m., at Jim Rush Funeral and Cremation Services, North Ocoee Street Chapel, in Cleveland.

Due to current COVID-19 regulations,  the state’s COVID guidelines will be followed. Please  wear a mask.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Shriner’s Children’s Hospitals and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, because she loved children and believed in charity.
