On Tuesday evening, December 7, 2021, our precious Deana Gail Golding Harris, 49, resident of New Albany, departed this life at Baptist Memorial Hospital in New Albany following a brief illness.
Funeral Services honoring the life of Deana will be at 2:30 Pm Thursday, December 9 at First United Methodist Church in New Albany with Bro. Timothy Prather officiating. Burial will follow in New Harmony Cemetery in Union County.
Deana was born May 6, 1972 in Union County and is the daughter of Gail Reeder Malone (Danny) of New Harmony Community and the late Kenneth Dean Golding. She was a graduate of East Union High School and received her Associate's Degree as a Medical Assistant and furthered her career as a cosmetologist. Employed with several salons in the Union County area for 30 years, Deana had recently become a homemaker before her death.
A member of First United Methodist Church, everyone was drawn toward Deana's smile and her love. Her life revolved around the joy she found in her beloved family, her wide circle of cherished friends, her home and her seven dogs.
Known for her sweet, kind spirit Deana will be remembered for her zest for life, her love for the beach, spas, late night food binges and the Amish Community. We ask the Lord to comfort our hearts and give us strength to carry on inspired and comforted by Deana's presence in our lives. We will miss her dearly.
