Nancy Carol Cocilo Harris, 70, of Statesville, N.C., died Wednesday, December 13, 2023, at Glenwood Nursing and Rehab in Mooresville, N.C.

She was born in Iredell County on April 16, 1953, to the late Benedict John Cocilo Sr. and Melba Eagle Cocilo. Nancy was a member of Monticello Methodist Church and had worked as an administrator in the mental health field and later as an in-home health care aide. She loved cooking and baking, fishing, and going to the beach — especially with her sisters. She spent a lot of time cooking and delivering Meals on Wheels and truly loved the people she met. She always thought about others. Most of all, she loved her children and grandchildren with all her heart and cherished every moment she spent with them.

Those left to cherish her memory include two sons, Jonathan Harris (Jessica) and Joey Harris (Beth); a daughter, Mandi Harris (Wes Heffernan); five grandchildren, Kaleb Heffernan, Paxton Heffernan, Julie Harris, Jordan Harris, and Sam Harris; a brother, Benny Cocilo Jr. (Karen); and two sisters, Debby Sipe (Eddy), and Tricia Cocilo.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held Sunday, December 17, 2023, at 3 p.m. in the Nicholson Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Amy Spivey officiating. The family will visit with friends following the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Hospice and Palliative Care of Iredell County, 2347 Simonton Road, Statesville, NC 28625.

Nicholson Funeral Home is honored to serve the Harris family.
