Anna Marie Harris, 52, died peacefully at Beacon Place in Greensboro, NC on Thursday, July 31, 2014. She was born on December 16, 1961 in Greensboro, NC to Herman Wesley and Mary Lou (Mackey) Harris.

Anna was a graduate of Ben L. Smith High School, Greensboro, NC where she was president of the Spanish Club, member of the Spanish Honor Society, Dramatics Club, Smith Ensemble and a cheerleader. Her excellence in Spanish earned a nomination to the Governor's School of North Carolina. Anna attended Guilford Technical Community College in Jamestown, NC. She had a long career at United Guaranty Corporation, Greensboro.

Anna developed a love of music and dance at a very young age. She studied and performed in many different types of dance, ultimately performing as a member for the Greensboro Civic Ballet. With her beautiful soprano voice, she brought the Lord's blessings in song as a member of the church choirs at both Our Lady of Grace and St. Benedict Catholic Churches.

Her courageous enthusiasm and gentle spirit endeared her to others. She could light up any room with her smile. Her love for the Lord shone through not only in her singing but in her affection for family and friends.
