KNIGHTDALE – DeAnna Dawn (29) journeyed on to her Eternal home in Heaven; her home prepared for her by her Savior Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:1). She made a decision to trust Jesus early in her life and He welcomes her now with open arms.

DeAnna is survived by her mother, Kathleen Ann Harris of Knightdale, NC; her father, Roger Alan Harris, Sr. of Pottsboro, TX; her three brothers Roger Alan “RJ” Harris, Jr, Benjamin Jay “BJ” Harris (Mary), and Jeremy Jon “JJ” Harris.

DeAnna’s dear Grandmother, Frances Elliott, and paternal Grandparents, Charles and Nancy Harris, preceded DeAnna into heaven and they are now rejoicing with Jesus.

DeAnna loved others deeply, and she especially loved her family. She cherished her three older brothers. and had a deep love for her mother. She was such a compassionate, spirited, nurturing, and forgiving person. As a young child, DeAnna never met a stranger. Her zest for living life to the fullest was evident in her endearing smile, her twinkling eyes and her contagious personality.

DeAnna also loved God, her church family, her friends and was loved by everyone of all ages from babies to many “adoptive” grandparents. Working with children and babies brought joy to her heart. As a teenager, she could be found helping out at her church’s nursery and anywhere needed. She was a willing, skillful, and joyful helper.

DeAnna was gifted by her creator with creative artistic talents: music, singing, piano, violin, ballet, crocheting, quilting, and so many more. She loved learning new skills, and would embrace her new endeavors with perseverance and perfection. She showered everyone with her innumerable homemade and purchased gifts, not wanting anything in return.

DeAnna will always be remembered for her kindness, and compassionate gift of love and mercy. For those who trust and follow Christ, we know her journey to heaven is not a goodbye.
