Harrittia “Sis” Byrd (Nelsen Funeral Home)

Harrittia “Sis” Byrd, 83, of Cannelton, WVA, passed away Wednesday, February 21, 2024.

She was preceded in death by her parents, George Everett Morris and Frankie Christine Morris; her four brothers, George Jr., Robert, Garry and Joe; and two sisters, Ilena and Judith Ann.

She is survived by her husband of 62 years, Daniel Blake Byrd, the love of her life; sons Michael Byrd (Bertie), Joe Byrd (Missy), Billy Byrd (Cindy), and daughter Kelly Nobles (Eric). 12 Grandchildren, Erika, Toni (Cody), Blake, Crystal (Cory), Brandie, Jesse, Terri, Christopher, Madison (Zac), Rachel, Katie and Chloe; 13 Great Grandchildren and extended family.

Harrittia was a devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Despite her large family, she always made time for those she loved. She was always “tickled” when family came to her home for social visits. Harrittia loved her family fiercely and abundantly and centered her life around them.

She enjoyed gardening, cooking, and playing rummy around the kitchen table.

The family would like to extend their gratitude and thanks to the nursing staff of Riverside Hospice Care for their kindness and care given to our beloved Harrittia.

At her request, a private ceremony will take place at a later time.
