Deborah Ann (Hollis) Harrison, 58, of Conshohocken died Saturday, June 14, 2014 at her home.

Born June 9, 1956 in Philipsburg, she was the daughter of Mary Jane (Hollabaugh) Hollis of Philipsburg and the late Martin J. Hollis Jr. She was of the Catholic faith.

She was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the VFW Post 5020 in Osceola Mills.  She was employed as the Comptroller for NHS Human Services of Lafayette Hill.

She was a 1974 graduate of the Philipsburg-Osceola High School. Also, she graduated from Empire Beauty Academy & Cosmetology in State College.  She was attending Montgomery County Community College where she was majoring in business administration.

In addition to her mother, she is survived by a daughter, Katlyn Anne Harrison of Conshohocken; a son, Michael Sylvio Harrison of Conshohocken; two sisters, Cindy Hollis Jones and Lori Prestash and her husband, George Prestash III, both of Philipsburg; and a brother, Martin Hollis III of Philipsburg.

Her children were her absolute passion and the center of her entire world.  She was a dedicated mother who spent her life providing love and support to ensure her children’s happiness.  When she spoke of her children, her eyes brightened and in an instant, you could feel how proud she was of them and the incredible bond they shared.

She was a loving and compassionate person who cared deeply for her family and friends and without hesitation would open her home and her heart to anyone who needed help.

She was an avid supporter of Penn State’s ATLAS and THON and was always happy to host THON volunteers and Foreign Exchange students at her home.  She was truly a beautiful person whose caring nature and smile has left a lasting impression on anyone who knew her.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Osceola Mills, with the Rev. Father Joseph Staszewski officiating.  Burial will be at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Cemetery in Osceola Mills.

Friends will be received from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. and from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. Friday at the Heath Funeral Home in Osceola Mills. A Ladies Auxiliary of the VFW memorial service will be held at 7:15 p.m. and the Rosary will also be recited at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the funeral home.
