Wanda Jane Harris

April 30, 1948 ‒ May 15, 2021

Marion, Ohio

Wanda Jane Harris, age 73, of Marion died Saturday, May 15, 2021 at Marion General Hospital after several battles with cancer. 

Wanda was born in Circleville, Ohio on April 30, 1948, the youngest of 13, to the late Roy Woods and Alice (Eldrigde) Rohr.  

After moving to Marion, Wanda worked for many years at Whirlpool on the assembly line.  Being a woman of faith, Wanda attended Berean Baptist Church and Grace Baptist Church.  

Above all, Wanda loved her family.  She was married to the love of her life Raymond J. Harris.  Together, Wanda and Raymond raised three wonderful daughters taking yearly trips to Myrtle Beach and camping when ever possible.  Wanda and Raymond also took many family vacations and cruises to far away ports such as Alaska, Mexico, and Jamaica.  After Raymond’s death, she continued to travel with her daughters and grandchildren visiting Light Houses along Lake Erie and Pigeon Forge and most recently enjoyed a cruise with all 3 of her daughters to Mexico.

If Wanda wasn’t with her family, she could often be found watching MeTV or her beloved Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel.  Having a knack for finding a good deal, Wanda loved to shop.  Being musically minding, she loved to sing, play the organ and could be found on any dance floor!   

Wanda will be missed by her three daughters, Stacey (Larry) Delawder of Marion, Susan (Chris) Huffine of Marion, and Shelley (Tim Teets) Cox of Richwood; grandchildren, Cory (Rachel) Bonsel, Cami Goddard, Addyson Delawder, Heather (Cody) Hartley, Christyn (William Mannering) Huffine, Jenna (David) Demming, Amanda (Andrew Mannering) Cox, Michael Cox, Allison Cox, Paiton Teets, Whitney Teets, Auston Teets, and Timothy Teets; 10 great-grandchildren; puppy companion, Princess; adopted daughters, Patti Armbruster and Stephanie Harruff; and countless friends, extended family members, nieces and nephews. 

Visitation will be held at Snyder Funeral Homes, Gunder/Hall Chapel on Wednesday, May 19, 2021 from 11 until 1 pm.  A funeral will be held at 1 pm at the funeral home with Rev. Nicholas Worden officiating.  

Donations may be made in Wanda’s honor to The American Cancer Society.
