Paula Ann Harris, 48, of Massillon, passed away peacefully, in the comfort of her home, with her husband and family at her side, early Friday morning, May 7, 2021. A woman of grace and courage, she fought against the effects of her illness for the past several months and was an example of strength and true faith to all who knew her. Born in Massillon, October 6, 1972, a daughter to Paul and Elaine (Lopez) Lambert, Paula graduated from Washington High School with the Class of 1990. She received her undergraduate degree in Retail Management from the University of South Carolina in 1993.
A loving wife and a devoted mom, daughter, sister and aunt, Paula was a member of St. Barbara Catholic Church and had been employed in the dispatch office of Massillon Cable Television. She placed her home and her family at the center of her life and enthusiastically supported her children and their teammates in sports and gymnastics and as a cheer coach. She enjoyed all sports and the outdoors and brought energy and passion to all she did. She found great joy in being a mom, and quiet pride in the accomplishments and successes of her children.
Paula is survived by her husband, Brent A. Harris and daughter, Alyssa, both of the home, and her son, Brian Harris, of Canton. Also surviving are her parents; her sister, Lisa (Les) Langdale, of Charleston, South Carolina, and brothers, Tony (Laurie) Lambert, of Winchendon, Massachusetts and Joe (Leah) Lambert, of Asheville, North Carolina; and her nieces and nephews.
Cremation has taken place and a fitting Celebration of Paula’s Life will be hosted by her family at a future date.
