Edna Lee Deese Harris, 89, of Charlotte, passed away July 11, 2012. Edna was born in Kershaw, South Carolina, to the late James Manley Deese and Lillie May Small Deese. She was married 64 years to the love of her life, Harry M. (Buddy) Harris, Sr., before he passed away on June 24, 2012. They gave each other true love and companionship. His passing left a tremendous void. Edna lived every day to the fullest. She was a member of the Sunshine Club Sunday School class at Grace Crossing Baptist Church, and a member of the Big Eight Bowling League for 25 years. She was loved by so many friends through her bridge club and the Oasis Shrine Patrol. She was a very special wife, mother, mother-in-law, and loving grandmother. Her immediate family includes her son, Harry (Buddy) Harris, Jr. and his wife, Gay; daughter, Cathy Johnston; grandchildren, Buddy Harris, III and his wife, Abigail, Cameron Allen and husband, Woody , Trent Johnston and wife, Casey, and Travis Johnston and wife, April; and her great grandchildren, Woody and Gaylen Allen, Pearl and Liberty Harris, and Noah Johnston. The family would like to thank everyone with Presbyterian Hospital, Presbyterian Hospice and Palliative Care, and especially the caregivers of SeniorBridge, Tiffany, Janette, Renesha, and a special thanks to Brenda Taylor, who has been the caregiver and loving friend of Edna and Buddy, Sr. for many years. –
