Obituary for Laura Dyanne Harris

Laura Dyanne Harris was born on August 7, 1941 in Kansas City, Kansas to Herbert Leon, Sr. and Mary Elizabeth (Reed) Rollins. She was a lifelong resident of Kansas City, Kansas. Laura graduated from Sumner High School in 1959, then graduated from Donnelly College and Park College where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Social Work. In 1960, she married Melvin D. Harris and together they had two daughters.

Laura had a gift for helping others; she worked as a substitute teacher for the Kansas City School district, both in Missouri and Kansas, at “Neutral Ground,” a shelter for runaway kids, and finally she retired from Lansing Prison where she was a counselor.

Laura loved to spend time with her family- she was a proud mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She was also very involved with her church, Metropolitan Spiritual Church of Christ, where she was ordained as a minister in 1990 and served the Lord and her community faithfully until her health began to fail. One of Laura’s very favorite things was watching action movies and celebrating her birthday with family. She loved to laugh and never met a stranger.

Laura was preceded in death by her parents: Mary and Herbert Rollins, Sr.; her husband Melvin; and siblings Eloise Williams, Louise Charleston and her husband John, and Herbert Rollins, Jr. She leaves to cherish her memories her children: Michele Bledsoe and Tina Harris; sister Mary Oliver (Joe); brother in law Joshua Williams; brother in law Malvin Harris (Mary); sister in law Rosemary Thornton; grandchildren: Monica Bledsoe and Regina Stackhouse (Alan); great granddaughter Luna Michele Stackhouse, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
