What a wonderful blessing it was to meet Jane. We met through her spoiled dog Chloe! Jane gave me a laugh when she would give up the front seat just so Chloe could look around! My mother Dona and I are sending love and prayers to the Harrison’s . She will be truly missed in our hearts.

God took home an angel and heaven is a little brighter we lost a dear friend and beautiful lady inside and out. We will cherish the time we knew Jane forever. She was loving to all she met and showed God's love in the things she did. We loved her and will truly miss her. Jane was an inspiration gave comfort to people in many ways, she listened when you needed someone to talk to and gave great advice if asked for. Rest in God's arms sweet lady.

Your family is in our prayers. She was a wonderful and giving person. Mrs. Harrison made such an impression on me as a teacher and a role model. She was fair and encouraged students to pursue their talents and dreams. When I worked at a grocery store as a cashier later in high school, I looked forward to catching up with her in line. She was so patient and considerate. She would even ask about my interests and what our class members were doing then. She will be missed by many.

Dear Glenn, Beth, John and Family, I am heartbroken over the loss of your sweetheart, mother and grandmother. Jane and your family have meant so much to our family over the decades. It was obvious to everyone how much she loved her family and how proud she was of her children and grandchildren. She was beaming the last time I saw her and she was filling me in on the latest Harrison and Norton family news while we had lunch together. No one was kinder or sweeter than Jane. Please know that I will continue to pray for each of you.

In March, right before quarantine, my kids and I were at Subway. While there, i had been given a coupon by some stranger. I thanked them and then decided I would pass it on to the next customer because I had an app coupon I was already using. When the next person walked in I began to ask them if they wanted the coupon and quickly recognized that this person was my fourth grade teacher and her husband. We proceeded to hug as we called each other by name. I let her know what I had probably told her a 100 times before when I saw her, that she is and was my favorite teacher ever. She taught me to love to read as well as to love school itself. She made school real for me and made me realize it could be fun, but most importantly she loved on me as her own. She realized that what was more important then subjects was my need to have someone who was fully invested in me. Today, I found out that she had passed from a recent illness. I am so thankful for God placing her in my path amidst this craziness so that I could have that one more Jane Harrison hug before she left. Prayers to her family.
