Lacie's Story

Text size

Lacie Lynn Harris, 89, was born in Cullman County, Alabama, on January 8, 1928. She entered Heaven's gates on September 22, 2017, at Riverview Medical Center, Gadsden, Alabama, after a brief illness. She was the daughter of Luther and Florence Lynn.
She is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Eldridge Harris; and infant son, Ronnie Harris.
She is survived by her twin sister, Gracie Tapscott; her daughter, Carolyn (Larry) Mince, sons, Lynn (Ann) Harris, and Rick (Angel) Harris. Grandchildren: Dr. Shawn Galin, Tori (Court) Barber, Nikki Whitehead, Casey Harris, Adam (Lisa) Harris. Great-grandchildren: Courtlyn Barber, Emma Barber, Read Barber, Dr. Jessica (Jordan) Akin, Sydney Whitehead, Dean Thomas Roddy, and Lily Roddy and great-great-granddaughter, Ella Akin.
Lacie retired from the Cullman County Health Department. After retirement she continued her life of service to others as a Pink Lady volunteer at Cullman Regional Medical Center. She enjoyed gardening and cooking for her family. Canning vegetable soup, green beans, and apple jelly were her specialties. Her lemon icebox pies and fried apple pies were legendary. She was a member of Northside Baptist Church. She loved Southern Gospel music and good preaching. She cherished her life-long friends from Northside who were so faithful to call and visit her during her final years. Lacie's faith in God never wavered.
While a resident at Morningside Assisted Living, Lacie continued her hobby of raised-bed gardening and attended all the social activities. Bingo for quarters was the highlight of her day. She always enjoyed a good sale at Belk. When she transitioned to Gadsden Health Care she began a new hobby of intricate coloring. She was adored by her family who lavished her with love.
The family would like to thank the residents and staff at Morningside Assisted Living and Gadsden Healthcare for making her final years so happy.
The family will receive friends Tuesday, September 26, at Moss Service Funeral Home from 12:00pm to 2:00pm with a life celebration at 2:00pm. Burial will follow at the Cullman City Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Northside Baptist Church, 310 Katherine Street NW, Cullman, AL 35055.
