Jackie Harrison passed away November 29, 2021. Born in Columbia, she was a daughter of the late Frank Carson (step-father) and Pauline Crapps Carson. Jackie worked at a family owned nursery, Harrison’s Nursery. After W.P. Harrison, Sr. retired, her husband carried on the business as Harrison’s Azaleas, where she worked for many more years. She then worked in the Finance Department at Midlands Technical College until her retirement. Jackie was a prior member of Columbia First Seventh-day Adventist Church located in Lexington, SC where she served as Sabbath School Secretary for many years. Her membership was later moved to Three Angels Seventh-day Adventist Church in Batesburg, SC. She loved her family deeply and enjoyed spending time with them. She also greatly enjoyed reading her Bible, baking and singing. Jackie was a prayer warrior and had the blessed hope of Christ’s soon return. We look forward to seeing her on Resurrection Day.
