Mrs. Patricia “Pat” Lynne Mohler Harris, 66, of Harmony, N.C., passed away on Wednesday, October 28, 2020, with her family by her side at Rosewood Assisted Living.
Pat was born in Iredell County on February 6, 1954, and was the daughter of the late Howard Adams and Kay Fox Mohler. She was a graduate of South Iredell High School and on February 10, 1974, she married Joe Harris and together they shared 46 years of marriage before her passing.
Pat was employed with Intercraft Industries, where she worked as a shipping & receiving clerk and was a member of Chapel Hill UMC. Pat’s last job was at Intercraft; however, she did have other jobs in the past, including Revco. Some of her most challenging jobs were picking cotton and planting tobacco on the Harris Family Farm. Some people knew her by Pat, some people called her Trish, but there were six lucky ones that called her Nana.
Nana had lots of hobbies, but one of her favorite things to do was watching her grandchildren do what they love — whether it was on the softball, baseball or soccer field or basketball court or watching concerts, musicals, recitals, pageants, and graduations. She was so very proud of each of them and of their individual accomplishments. Before grandchildren and in between supporting them, she loved to shop — whether it was for clothes or for flowers (it didn’t matter what kind-she loved them all), or for craft supplies! She was an excellent craftsperson who enjoyed painting, quilting, and wreath making. Anyone that crossed her path will remember her smile and caring demeanor.
In addition to her husband Joe, Pat is survived by one daughter, Melissa H. Whitaker (Bobby); and two sons, Billy Harris (Michelle) of Harmony and Josh Harris of Mocksville. She is also survived by six grandchildren, Kaitlyn and Gage Marshall and Lauren, Lex, Nathan, and James Harris, all of Harmony. She is further survived by one sister, Brenda Hicks (Jim) of Olin.
Graveside funeral services honoring the life of Pat Harris will be conducted at 2 p.m. on Sunday, November 1, 2020, at Clarksbury Church Cemetery in Harmony. The body will lie in state on Saturday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Nicholson Funeral Home. The family will speak with friends for 30 minutes following the graveside services. Honorary pallbearers will be Gage Marshall, Lex Harris, Nathan Harris, and James Harris.
