Preceding her in death were her husband of 41 years, Harry Harrison, who died in 1982; and a sister.

Tuesday’s Mass will begin at 10:30 a.m. at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church, 163 W. Eaton Ave. Burial will follow in Tracy Cemetery, 501 E. Schulte Road. Visitation will be observed from noon to 5 p.m. Monday, followed by a vigil service, at Hotchkiss Mortuary, 5 W. Highland Ave.
