Washington DC, DC

Melissa Jean Harris, avid world-traveler, fervent art connoisseur, and a passionate enthusiast of all brightly colored things, died peacefully at home on February 22nd, 2024. Melissa was born on October 12th, 1957, in Grove City, Pennsylvania, a daughter of the late E. Robert and Audrey Heasley Harris. Following her graduation from Grove City High School, Melissa studied French, Russian, and Spanish at Edinboro State College. With a bachelor’s degree in foreign languages in hand, she took a job as a translator and moved to the Washington DC area. There she met Terry Noonan, and for the next forty years they traveled, visiting museums and galleries and sights across the globe. Always spending a week each year in Melissa’s favorite spot: a cottage on the beach in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. In between trips, Melissa loved spending time in the kitchen, making new recipes she found in a magazine or baking some of her famous treats for family and friends. And for more than twenty-five years, she volunteered as a docent at the National Gallery of Art. So dinner conversations were always sprinkled with stories from Paris and Prague, or Monet and Manet. Or Ireland and Italy, Degas and Renoir, and sometimes that favorite cruise to Alaska. We will miss those conversations and meals, and what we will remember most is Melissa’s indomitable spirit. Melissa is survived by Terry Noonan. She was a loving mother to Brendan and his wife Kristi, a proud Granniemel to Jackson, Grace, and Mikaela, and a loving Aunt to her nieces Teresa Podleyon, Maria Cunningham, and Juliet Harris. Per Melissa’s request, no funeral or memorial service will be held. In lieu of flowers, we invite you to make a tribute gift to the National Gallery of Art in Melissa’s memory.
