Nancy Lee Harris born January 15th, 1927 passed away after a long and full life on August 20th, 2019. She was born Nancy Lee Green on January 15th, 1927 in Cincinnati, OH, and was the youngest child of Harry Carnahan Green and Kate Esther (Mckenna) Green. Nancy grew up in Louisville, Kentucky with her older brother Harry and sisters Shirley and Betty. She graduated from Shawnee High School in Louisville, then attended the University of Louisville, Marshall College, and West Virginia University. On August 16th, 1947 Nancy married Paul Jonathan Harris in Huntington, WV. Nancy and Paul moved to Elgin, IL in 1949, where their first two children, Stephen Michael Harris and Thomas Green Harris, were born. In 1953 they moved to Waltham, MA, where their third child, Andrew McKenna Harris, was born. In 1957 they moved to Lexington, MA, where their fourth child, Judith Ann Harris, was born. Nancy spent the next many years at her home on Peacock Farm Road in Lexington where she became an avid gardener and landscaper. She mowed her own lawn, raked her own leaves, and tended to her vegetables and flowers. Nancy loved the outside and maintained one of the nicer properties in the neighborhood singlehandedly. Nancy was also an active member of the Masterworks Chorale from 1955 to 1980, where she performed regularly and acquired many of her closest friends. In the early 1970’s Nancy returned to school where in 1973 she obtained her Masters of Science in Social Service from Boston University. Upon graduation she joined the staff at New England Rehabilitation Hospital in Woburn, MA as a Clinical Social Worker in the Head Trauma unit. Over the next 20 years Nancy became an established and respected member of the Rehab staff, where she developed many wonderful friendships; finally retiring in 1993. Her pleasant and open nature made it easy for Nancy to make friends wherever she went. She loved Scrabble, reading, traveling, watching the Patriots and Red Sox games, and 60’s TV. She was a master at crossword and jigsaw puzzles. She was also passionate about music, taking her morning walks, and most especially spending time with her family.
