Margaret ‘Anne’ Lane

1st Presbyterian member was loving mom, grandma

SHILLINGTON, Pa. — Margaret “Anne” Lane of Shillington, and a former 50-year resident of Sharon, passed away peacefully at 9:25 p.m. Thursday evening (7-10-14) in Shillington, just a few days before her 85th birthday.

Anne spent the last year of her life at the Mifflin Nursing Facility in Shillington to be close to her family, as her health problems no longer permitted independent living.

Mrs. Lane was born and raised in Oil City, a daughter of Henry and Helen Davidson Fields.

Upon graduation from high school, she moved as a young adult with her husband, William E. Lane, to start a family in the Hermitage area.

She was a homemaker until her children completed school, and then held various jobs as medical receptionist, retail salesperson and secretary.

An avid tennis player, Anne served for one year as the coach of the girl’s tennis team at what is now Kennedy Catholic High School, Hermitage.

Anne remained very active throughout her life, with interests included exercising, reading, collecting and gardening.

She was a member of First Presbyterian Church, Sharon.

Her husband, William E. Lane, whom she married April 25, 1953, passed away May, 13, 1997.

Anne is survived by: her two sons, David Lane, Fountain Hill, Calif.; and Thomas Lane, Shillington; her daughter-in-law, Jan Sebes; and her grandsons, Jordan, Benjamin and Christopher Lane, all Shillington.

Anne has a surviving sister, Jan Clarkin, Chesterfield, Mo.; and several surviving brothers- and sisters-in-law including Tom Clarkin, Shirley Lane, John Lane and Peg McFate.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents; her oldest son, John Davidson Lane; a brother, Henry Fields Jr.; and her sister, Ruth Fields.

In lieu of flowers, her family suggests that anyone wishing to make a memorial contribution to please consider Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, 322 Eighth Ave., Seventh Floor, New York, NY 10001, or Life Choice Hospice, 10 Zions Church Road, Suite 204, Shoemakersville, PA 19555.
