Obituary

Diane Cynthia Harrison, born on July 29, 1952, was the beloved middle child of Phillip and Frances Harrison. Diane, a true Pasadenean, attended Andrew Jackson Elementary School, George Washington Jr. High School, and John Muir High School, graduating in June of 1970.
Diane loved her Louisiana family roots, thus influencing her to attend Southern University in Baton Rouge. She graduated in May, 1974, earning a B.S. degree in Sociology. During her second year at Southern, she became a member of the Tempestuous 27 Pledge Club and joined the Beta Psi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., in the fall of 1971. Through-out her college years, Diane met some amazing fellow-students that would evolve into life-long friendships.
Upon graduation, the first phase of Diane’s employment journey included time as a Teacher/Trainer, Housing Counselor, Counselor/Trainer, Housing Specialist, and Community Relations Representative. In 1982, Diane began the next phase of her employment journey by becoming a Los Angeles Probation Officer, in the position of Group Night Supervisor (GSN), at Sylmar Juvenile Hall. She then transferred to Cantilena Metro Gang Unit and to the surprise of those who knew her, carried a gun. Later Diane was promoted to Probation Officer II, at Camp Afflerbaugh. The final position she held was as a Court Officer at the EastLake Courthouse. During her 38 years of employment in the penal system, Diane touched countless lives and nurtured many meaningful relationships.
Diane enjoyed going to the movies, visiting family and friends all over the United States, and traveling throughout the world. Many remember her flare for Louisiana cooking which included gumbo, red beans and rice, jambalaya, mac n cheese and fried turkey. Diane delighted in entertaining friends and family.
Diane received Jesus Christ at a very young age, and was baptized at Friendship Baptist Church. During her adult life, she was a member of Abundant Harvest Christian Center, and Pasadena Church. In 2003, she attended Life Line School of Ministry, and became a license minister. Minister Diane was a devoted Helps Ministry Volunteer, during her many years serving The Lord. A decade later, she received training in Florida, returned and opened a Healing Room in Pasadena, where she facilitated the needs for prayer, meditation, counseling, and the gift of prophecy. No matter the circumstance, Diane was always there to support the hurting and forgotten. She would render God’s Agape Love to so many throughout her life’s journey. Diane was a virtuous woman, who placed God first in her life.
On the evening of Friday, May 1st, Diane transitioned to receive her heavenly reward, which she so deservingly earned. She will be missed by so many, but her smile, loving kindness, caring heart, generosity, willingness to always pray for others, and gentleness, will remain in our hearts as reminders of God’s Presence.
Diane was preceded in death by her parents Phillip Harrison, Sr., Frances Devore Harrison, and brother Phillip Harrison II. She lovingly leaves to cherish her memory, her sister Phyllis Harrison, Mrs. Valerie Ackiss (aunt), Mrs. Lucille Bartlett (aunt), Ashley Davis (goddaughter), and a host of cousins and friends throughout the United States.
