Margaret Elizabeth Harrison

SHREVEPORT, LA- A beautiful life was given over to the Lord on Friday, June 13, 2008, as Elizabeth Harrison finished her final battle with cancer. Visitation will be held Monday, June 16, 2008 from 5-7 PM at Rose-Neath Funeral Home-Marshall Street, Shreveport, LA. The funeral service honoring this valiant warrior will be at 2:00 PM Tuesday, June 17 at Broadmoor Baptist Church, Shreveport, Louisiana, officiated by Dr. Tom Harrison and Dr. Larry Williams. Interment will follow at Forest Park Cemetery, St. Vincent Avenue, Shreveport, LA.

Elizabeth was born on June 17, 1966, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She grew up in Shreveport and graduated from Captain Shreve High School in 1984. She received her undergraduate degree from Baylor University and her Master's Degree from Louisiana Tech. She worked for several years for Charter Forest Hospital and Southfield School before her employment at Captain Shreve High School as an English and Broadcast Journalism teacher. Elizabeth loved her students and they loved her. We will be forever grateful to the seniors of 2007, as well as the faculty of Captain Shreve, who rallied around her in her hour of need.

Elizabeth loved life and loved her Lord. He carried her along on eagles' wings and placed her in the cleft of the rock throughout her life. Her greatest desire was that others would know and love her Savior. Elizabeth was a lifelong member of Broadmoor Baptist Church and was involved in almost every aspect of the church throughout her life.

Elizabeth was predeceased by her maternal grandfather, Ragan Madden, and her paternal grandparents, John and Anne Harrison.

She is survived by her parents, John and Betty Harrison of Shreveport; brothers, Dr. David Harrison and wife, Jennifer, of Knoxville, TN; and Keith Harrison of Shreveport; one nephew, whom she adored, Ragan Harrison, Knoxville, TN; maternal grandmother, Margaret Madden, Shreveport; uncle, Ragan Burt Madden, Little Rock, AR; aunts, Marilyn Hill, Shreveport; Linda Watkins and husband, Dave, Tampa, FL; cousins, Anne Sutton, Kim Hannigan and Andrew Watkins; great-aunt, Sue Vernon; and many other cousins. Elizabeth considered a very special group of friends to be her family also: Kathy Lilley, Alison Raney, Susan Dungan, Susie Johnson, Kathy Manning, Annette Painter, Christi Horton, and Vickey Burnett. Thank you, precious friends. Our heartfelt thanks also go out to the thousands of people around the world who lifted us up in prayer. May you be forever blessed.

Pallbearers will be Dr. Dan Reneau, Dr. Doug Lilley, Frederick Payne, Robert Burt, Chad Gulledge, Jimmy Burnett, Harry Truslow and Kevin Teague.

A special word of thanks is extended to Dr. Michael Durci, Dr. Ben Quinney, Dr. Richard Kamm, Dr. Wen Liu, and the wonderful 6th floor nursing staff at Willis Knighton Pierremont for the care and compassion they gave Elizabeth in her final days.
