Shawanna Marquita Elaine Harris, 35, of Lima was called Home on Monday, March 25, 2019 in Whitehall, OH. She was born on March 9, 1984 in Dayton, OH to Jeffery Lynn Brown Harris and Bridgette Stoudermire, both surviving of Dayton.

Shawanna was employed with Crothall Laundry, Inc. and had been a Union Representative for over twelve years. She loved helping people and was willing to do anything for anyone. She could arrange a party at the drop of a hat!

Ms. Harris is also survived by the father of her children, Marcus Wright; her children: Deystine Shehee, Ni’Jah Wright, Mi’Kenzie Wright and Marcus Wright. She also leaves to cherish her memory by her siblings: Daniel Johnson, Shannon Harris, Jeffery Harris, Jr., Kishara Johnson, Kiara Houston and Angela Johnson. Her special uncle, Charles Evans, also survives. Her grandparents surviving are Hester Johnson, Christina Harris and L.C. Johnson. She also leaves her best friends LaShonda Weldon, Shawntel Brown and many special cousins.

Preceding her in death are her aunts, Edith Evans and Freddie Liles, and her uncles, Willie Jackson and Larry Johnson.

There are many words to describe this amazing woman: strong, feisty, independent, spunky, fashionable and occasionally outspoken. She will be missed by all.
