Obituary: Renee Lynn Harris-May, 41, Westmont, entered into eternity in peace on Sunday February 5, 2017 after a long battle with drug addiction. She was a daughter, wife, mom, sister, aunt, cousin, and granddaughter. I know her grandfather Walter Hessler, her dad William Harris and cousins Brian Kysar and Bobby Hessler crossed her over to her heavenly home. Renee was born at Womack Army Hospital, Fort Bragg, North Carolina on May 14, 1975. She was the beloved daughter of Deborah Hessler Ondrejko and John J. Ondrejko. Preceded in death by father, William D. Harris; son, Trey; grandfathers, Walter Hessler, and William A. Harris; grandparents, John and Eleanor Ondrejko; aunts, Judith Fry Gillin, Helen Hessler, and Leslie Harris Bennett; uncle, Bill Ardisson; and cousins, Brian Nick Kysar and Robert Hessler. Survived by husband, Kyle May; daughter, JoHanna; and sisters, Aimee (Scott Cernik) and Jenny (D.J Kelleher); grandmothers, Mary Ann Hessler and Delores (Deb) Harris; nieces and nephews, Ginger Huskey, Garrett Cernik and Bane Kelleher; uncles, Jim Hessler, Walter Hessler and David Hessler; aunts, Sharon Kysar, JoAnn Ardisson, Denise Emmel, Mel Guy, Pam Whitney; and special friend, Debi Galko; and numerous cousins. To know Renee was to know a free and uncompromising spirit. She was a beautiful woman, who had so much love in her heart. She had a true passion for nature, animals and was an avid music lover. She was so loved and will be missed forever. Our beautiful Renee… I hope you are looking down on us and seeing how much you are loved. Never did I ever think God would call you home so young. You had a long agonizing battle and you fought it every step of the way. To everyone who doesn’t understand addiction she will be just another statistic, but to us, she was our daughter, our oldest, the one with such a beautiful smile and quick wit. She knew her demons and I’m sure, like she told me the last time, “Mom, just one more time.” Apparently God had other plans. He saw her constant struggle and decided to let her have peace. Friends will be received from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday at the Askew-Houser Funeral Homes, Inc., Nanty Glo, where vigil prayer service will be held. Funeral mass will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Nanty Glo, the Rev. Leonard Voytek, celebrant. Committal, St. Mary's Cemetery.
