Obituary of Beverly M. Harris

Beverly M. “Nene” Harris, 61, passed away at 1:40 p.m. on Friday, May 31, 2019, at Marion General Hospital.  Born in Memphis, Tennessee, on December 3, 1957, Beverly was the daughter of the late Sam Lee Harris, Sr., and of Evelyn (Gilmer) Andrews, who survives.

Because of her caring personality and her desire to serve others, it was just natural that Beverly would go into the healthcare profession.  She worked as a CNA in different nursing facilities throughout her career.  She enjoyed cooking, shopping, singing, and especially family gatherings at Christmas and Thanksgiving. 

She is survived by her mother, Evelyn (RD) Andrews; son, Billy Lamar Harris, Fort Wayne; friend, Brian Jones, Fort Wayne; grandchildren, Jamoore, Jaquan, Jaheim, Kason, Auria, and Tayler; siblings: Valerie Slayton, Marion; Gregory Bady, Marion; Annshawn Ikudabo, Marion; Dewayne Jackson, Fort Wayne; Michelle Jackson, Fort Wayne; Sammette Harris, Jackson, MS; and Yolanda Harris, Jackson, MS; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Her father, Sam Lee Harris, Sr., and brother, Sam Lee Harris, Jr., preceded her in death.

The family will have a service at 1 p.m. on Friday, June 14, 2019, at Grant Memorial Park Mausoleum Chapel, 1606 W. 26th St., Marion, IN.  Burial will follow at Grant Memorial Park.
