5 Comments on “Shelva Jean Harrison”

  1. My thoughts and prayers are with the whole, extended family. The obituary is a beautiful testament to a life well lived of a woman clearly loved by many. May she rest in peace.

  2. Prayers with the family, loved Jean so much, best boss I ever had. Worked so well with all employees in the Brouns Ferry mail room. She will surely be missed. Wonderful lady.

  3. Connie and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I am grateful for God’s promise of eternal life and that you will be reunited with her one day.

  4. I worked with Jean as her Supervisor for a time at BFN. She was a good employee and a leader among her peers. I didn’t have to guess if she was a Christian. Our spirits bore witness of that fact. Of which I am grateful. Rest in peace sweet Lady. ❤️

  5. Brother Harrison and family,
    I’m sorry to read of your loved one’s passing and may all find comfort in our Lord’s word during this time of sadness.
    In John 11:23-26; “Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” Martha said to Him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”.
    A wonderful promise from our Lord Jesus that we can believe and have confidence in.
    May all find peace in knowing our loved ones who have passed on are now in the care of our Lord God who has shown his great love for us through his Beloved Son.
    Rest in peace dear sister, your reward is waiting.
    God’s continued blessings be upon you all.
