She was born in Kingsport on July 12, 1920, the daughter of Verlin Edgar and Vergie Mary Ann (Little) Bowery. She was a homemaker and a member of Sullivan Baptist Church where she taught Sunday School for several years. The love of her life was her family, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was very creative with her hands and was an excellent seamstress. She made clothing for the family, many quilts and knitted Christmas tree skirts, which her family members treasure today. For many years, she worked with the Ladies Auxiliary at Holston Valley Community Hospital. In addition to her parents, Mrs. Lane was preceded in death by her husband of 47 years Maldon Asbury Lane, Jr. and her brothers , Haskell, Claude, Verlin Edgar(V.E.)

Mrs. Lane loved her family so much and spent her life caring for them. Because education was so important to her, she was very active in PTA, band and other school activities of her children. She was so proud that all 3 of her children and all 9 of her grandchildren graduated from the University of Tennessee. On her 90th birthday, she received a congratulatory letter from UT Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek. One of her happiest times was a visit to her 90th birthday party by Mayor Dennis Phillips, surprising her with a key to the city.

The family would like to extend a special thanks and appreciation to the staff of Remington House that she called her home, Amedisys hospice, Comfort Keepers, Emergency Room and 5th Floor Staff at Wellmont Holston Valley Hospital and Medical Center and Dr. Warren Jones and Dr. Steven Butler.
