Obituary for Lanis L. (Kendall) Harris

Lanis L. (Kendall) Harris, a longtime resident of Maynard, passed away peacefully at Emerson Hospital July 4, 2022. She was 77 years old. She was the beloved wife of Robert Harris of Maynard.

Lanis was born on January 18, 1945 in Newton, daughter of the late Elmer H. and Anita (DeDoming) Kendall. She grew up in Sudbury and was a graduate of Lincoln-Sudbury High School. Lanis worked for many years as an electronics assembler. She lived for a time with her husband Bob in Millis and Franklin before ultimately settling back in Maynard.

She loved the White Mountains and weekly trips to play Bingo at St. Bridget’s. More than anything, Lanis adored her family, especially time spent together at the holidays. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
