Lisa was mother to Brandon, Tyler, Sumner, Carter, Caleb, and Cole. She and Randy raised them with sacrificial and unconditional love.

Lisa was the happiest when her home was filled with family, friends, and laughter. Lisa loved watching the boys play baseball, playing bocce ball with her family, and making caps for newborns at her hospital. Lisa was most proud of her beautiful family; her devoted husband and loving sons, and the men they have become.

Lisa is survived by Randy Harris, her loving husband of 30 years; her sons, and their life-long significant others: Brandon (Courtney Eastman), Sumner (Sierra Self), Carter (Meghan Gregory), Tyler (Steffany Saccany), Caleb, Cole; grandchildren, Charlie and Jameson.

Aside from her husband and her sons, Lisa is survived by her father, Jim Pontier; brother, Matthew Pontier; sisters: Nicole Pontier-Carrels, Cathy Reagan Sheffield, and Jennifer Selby; Aunt Mary Anne Moroney; childhood friend, Kathy Weber; more friends than can be listed. Lisa was the most loved person.

    Lisa has left a print in all our hearts. Her love for family showed by her sharing stories, pictures and by the way she expressed how important they were to her. She was a hardworking nurse and team player. I will miss her laughter, crazy comments and facial expressions. She could just look at me and I’d know what she was thinking. She will be missed Forever in our hearts my friend. Praying for peace and understanding for her family and friends during this time.

    I am sending my sympathy in the loss of your dear wife and mother. I know she was so proud of her boys. I’m a cousin of the Pontier guys and met Lisa through my aunt Florence DeVries and then we found each other again through my sister, Lois. Then we touched base occasionally on social media. She will surely be missed. She brought such joy. My condolences.
