Ellen Harrison, retired nurse, is laid to rest at 79

ELLEN HARRISON, a retired registered nurse, died from cancer at the Hospice House in Slidell, on December 30, 2021, just days shy of her 80th birthday. 


A native of Montgomery, AL., Harrison was an only child, who worked in home health care most of her life. She also loved breeding and showing dogs at dog shows around the country. Her love for Judaism was apparent in everything she did. She kept a kosher home, studied the Torah daily and always celebrated Shabbat and other holidays with enthusiasm and love. She was a graduate of the Florence Melton Adult-Mini School.

Among her passions were reading, engaging in long conversations with friends and enjoying nature.

She loved her home in the country and all it had to offer. Graveside services were held on Monday, January 3, 2022, at 11:00 am at Pinecrest Cemetery in Covington. Rabbi Josh Pernick of Congregation Beth Israel officiated.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations are suggested to Congregation Beth Israel, 4004 W. Esplanade S in Metairie; the Northshore Jewish Congregation; or the Hospice House of Slidell, LA.
