Sandra Harris

Completed arrangements are being announced for Sandra (Lanzer) Harris, 71, of Union City, who died Jan. 16, 2017, at her home after a four-year battle with ovarian cancer. She was born Feb. 7, 1945, the daughter of the late H.A. “Red” and Doris Lanzer. She married James Harris in March 1963 and they had one son, Jim Harris, and three grandchildren, Lanzer Elizabeth, Williams Rembert and Jack Henry. Services will be Friday at 11 a.m. at First United Methodist Church in Union City. Visitation will be from 4-8 p.m. Thursday at the church and burial will be at Obion County Memorial Gardens near Union City. The Revs. Jim Calhoun and Tim Atkins will officiate. White-Ranson Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. Pallbearers will be Ronnie Workman, Dr. Larry Buckles, Lanny Callicott, Bill Hutchison, Phillip Harris and Ricky Ferguson. The family requests that memorials be made to Union City First United Methodist Church or the charity of the donor’s choice. Sandra was a public accountant and worked at the former Home Comfort Heating and Air and at Jernigan Lime. For the last 30 years, she worked at Lanzer Printing and Office Supplies, where she was co-owner of a business that her parents started in 1941. Sandra loved life, her family, God, her many friends and her church. She loved to cook, play Bridge and tennis and other activities with friends. She would like for people to rejoice her life and not mourn her passing, because she knows there is life after death. Besides her husband, son and grandchildren, she leaves behind two sisters and their husbands, Nancy and Bill Owens of Leeward, Kan., and Mary and Richard Seay of Dripping Springs, Texas; four brothers-in-law and their wives, Cress and Betty Harris and Phillip and Pam Harris, all of Union City, Larry and Caroline Harris of Huntingdon and Thomas Harris of Scottsdale, Ariz.; her sister-in-law and her husband, Janice and Bill Smith of Union City; a host of nieces, nephews and cousins, and many, many friends. Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister and brother-in-law, Doris Virginia and Robert George Beauchamp; and her niece, Cathy Beauchamp.
