Julia Ann Nichols Harrison passed away peacefully at her home Wednesday, April 21, at the age of 73. She was born in Luverne, AL, on March 7, 1948, to William Porter and Evelyn Pinckard Nichols. Julia was a founding member of Phi Mu sorority at Troy State University and a member of the Troy State Collegiate Singers. In the choir she met the love of her life, Danny, from Florala. They were married May 3, 1970, and welcomed their twins, Keith and Kevin Harrison, one year later on May 3, 1971. Julia could light up a room with her beautiful smile, and crystal blue eyes! Anyone she met loved her and cherished her company. She was a wonderful Christian role model and a symbol of strength, courage, beauty, and grace. When she lost Danny at the early age of 60 she filled the role of both parents and grandparents. She carried on without complaint, always giving and sharing her time and love freely. Julia delighted in time with her grandsons and referred to them as "her joy". Her light will shine forever in the hearts of those fortunate to know her. Preceding her in death were her parents and grandparents, her brother William Terry Nichols, her beloved husband Daniel Lynn Harrison, and brothers-in-law Waylon (Jeanette) Harrison and Bob Harrison. She leaves to cherish her memory her sons: Dr. Keith (Kay) Harrison and sons Sam and Finn; Kevin (Selena) Harrison and sons Porter and Gavin; sister-in-law Shirley Harrison; lifelong best friend, Mary Sue Cain; aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins, and numerous dear friends. A private family memorial service will be held to celebrate her life.

We were so saddened to hear about Julia’s passing. We were neighbors of hers in Greystone and still have flowers that were planted in our yard that were her mother’s from years ago. Our kids, my husband, and I always think of her when they bloom. Although we were neighbors for a short time, she was such a delight to know and talked about her grandkids often. Much love to your family.

I saw Julia at uab when Natalie was receiving treatment for leukemia. She was still so beautiful and sweet. We had a wonderful visit and talked about old times at Southside Church. I am so sorry to know she has passed away. My prayers are with all of you. Julia was a wonderful person who was a delight to love.
