Beverly Harris

January 17, 1948 — November 15, 2023

Beverly Helm Harris of Irondale died Wednesday, November 15, 2023. She was 75

years old.

Ms. Harris was a resident of Irondale but had spent most of her life in Birmingham.

She was born on January 17, 1948, in Birmingham, AL. She married her high school

sweetheart, James Edward Harris, on August 3, 1968. They were married for 48

years when Jim passed away in October 2015.

She was preceded in death by her husband, by her parents, Waverly Bernard Helm

and Margaret Louise Helm, and her sister Deborah Wilson, all of Birmingham.

Ms. Harris is survived by two children, daughter Summer Harris Hancock of

Brentwood, Tennessee and son Joseph Nathaniel Harris of Irondale; two brothers

Waverly Helm (Cindy) of Springville and Kevin Helm of Birmingham; and two

grandchildren, Charles Hunter Hancock and Andrew James Hancock, both of

Brentwood.

She worked at the Len Lowe Co., Ltd. in Birmingham for many years as a secretary.

For the past 30 years she worked two months of the year playing a vital part of

helping the office of Christmas Village Festival and Cottontails Festival run smoothly.

Working there with those ladies was her "happy place".

But it was her "job," first as a Mom and in later years as "Granny B" to the

grandsons, that she was most proud of. She was also a loving caregiver to "rescue"

pups "Redd," "Missy" and "Jackson."

Ms. Harris graduated in 1966 from Shades Valley High School; afterward, she

attended Birmingham-Southern College.
