Barbara Anne (Williams) Lane

WEBER CITY, Va. - Barbara Anne Williams Lane entered the gates of Heaven Monday (Nov. 24, 2003).

She departed this life to begin eternity with Jesus. She fought a courageous battle with cancer and her strength and complete faith that God's will is sufficient was a blessing to those around her.

Barbara was an amazing woman who gave her love unconditionally and she strived to make everyone who entered her door feel at home. Her passing has created a vast void which will be filled with loving memories and an unwavering belief that we'll all be reunited with her in God's time.

She was preceded in death by her parents, William Mac and Ida Marie Williams; and grandparents, Hughie and Ethel Flanary.

She leaves behind her loving husband of 43 years, Orbin (A.L.) Lane; her daughter, Jan and her husband Doug Mann, Kingsport; her son, Lynn (Orbin) Lane and his wife Lisa, Cookeville, Tenn.; a special aunt, Irene (Surrie) Goodwin. So very important to Barbara were her two granddaughters, Lindsey Brooke Mann and Sarah LeeAnn Lane. Barbara believed strongly in tradition and passed along her love of cooking, crafts and embroidery to Lindsey, having spent countless hours lovingly teaching and sharing her amazing talents with her.

The visitation and memorial service will be held at Carter-Trent Funeral Home, downtown Kingsport, on November 28, 2003.

The family will receive friends beginning at 5 p.m. with the memorial starting at 8 p.m. Special speakers will be Dr. Sherri Hansen-Bundy and Dr. Bruce Atkins.

Praise in song will be provided by her special angel, Terri Evans.

The family requests that attire be casual.

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. Anyone who visited her would be asked "Have you seen my key to the city"?

Eulola Mae (Lane) Lane

Eulola M. Lane was born in Scott County, VA on Jun. 14, 1924; departed on Jan. 14, 2013 and resided in Kingsport, TN.

Eulola M. Lane was born in Pattonsville, VA in 1924 to the late Steven and Maggie Pearcy Lane. She moved to Kingsport, TN in 1947 and obtained employment at Borden Mills (JP Stevens) where she worked for 40 years in Weave I before retiring in 1987. In 1949 she married Granville Lane in Gate City, VA. They had two children, Diananna Sue, who lived three months, and Paula.

Mom enjoyed so many things in life but she loved her flowers most of all. After she retired, you could find her on warm days somewhere in her yard tending to her flowers. She truly had a green thumb and could start or grow anything. She survived breast cancer and fought a hard battle against the dementia that finally overcame her. All that really knew her loved her and she returned that love to so many. She was a hard worker and believed that everyone should earn their way in the world but yet she helped so many. Eulola put her trust and faith in God and believed that he knew what was best for her even after the dementia was diagnosed. Not once during the cancer or the dementia did she ever waiver in her faith, nor question why me? She was a strong woman that made her way in this world by her rules and beliefs. Eulola will be missed by those that knew and loved her but our lives will forever be blessed because she was there.

Mrs. Lane was preceded in death by her parents, husband, infant daughter, paternal grandparents, Samuel Patton and Louisa Reynolds Lane; maternal grandparents, William Frank and Cora Belle Lane Pearcy; sisters, Ona Mae Lane and Maysie Lee Hood; brothers. Junior, Bobbie and Frank Lane; and step-daughter, Loretta.

She is survived by her daughter, Paula and husband, Phil; granddaughter, Rebecca; two great-granddaughters, Kendra and Candi; sister, Lois; brother, Sherman and wife, Teresa; step-granddaughter, Kristy; step-great-granddaughter, Montana; and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the many caregivers Mom had over the years and hope their lives are blessed for the care and love they extended to her.

Graveside services will be conducted at the Lane Family Cemetery off of Kingdom Road in Duffield, VA at 2:00 pm Thursday, January 17th. Family and friends will meet at the cemetery.

Mom loved her flowers but felt that the money should be spent on something else instead of her, so take a road trip and take time to smell the flowers in her honor. The family requests that no food be brought to the home.

MURDER-SUICIDE RULED IN DEATHS

2 Scott Men Found Dead

FORT BLACKMORE -- Jack Lane, 23-year-old Scott County truck driver, took his own life Friday night [1/9/1959] immediately after shooting to death James Gilbert Harley, a 53-year-old retired farmer who had been living with Lane, police said.

The shooting took place at Lane's home in the Twin Springs section near Fort Blackmore.

According to Deputy sheriff J. H. (Bear) Darnell, no motive for the killing of Harley has been established.  Darnell said that both men had been drinking heavily Friday evening.

The Scott County Sheriffs office is listing the deaths as murder and suicide, Darnell said.

"No further investigation is being made at this time," he stated.

Darnell said that he was called at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday and arrived at the scene of the double tragedy around one o'clock.

"I found the Lane boy's body in a chair," he said.  "Harley looked like he had been sitting on the floor.  He was shot in the left side of the nose.  Lane was shot in the left side near the heart."

Each man, he said, was killed by one shot from a .22 caliber pistol found by Lane's left hand.

Tells Of Threats

According to Darnell, Mrs. Lane said that her husband had threatened her and her two daughters, his stepchildren, as well as Harley.  When Lane fired two shots inside the house, Mrs. Lane took the children, Melba and Kathy Brickey, to the barn of the house, he said.

Mrs. Lane told one of the girls to "slip out of the house", and she sneaked the other out through a back room window, Darnell related.

Heard Shot, Noise

While they were at the barn, Mrs. Lane said that she heard a shot and "an awful noise" then seconds later, a second shot, Darnell said.  He said that she then went to the house, looked in a window and saw the bodies.

Called Sheriff's Office

The dead man's wife then went to the home of one of Lane's brothers, who live nearby.  The brother notified the sheriff's office, he said.

Lane is survived by his wife; his father and stepmother, Mr. and Mrs. P. H. Lane of Gate City; his mother, Mrs. Myrtle Neff Lane, address unknown; the two stepdaughters; a stepson, Doris Brickey, with the Army in Germany; two sisters, Miss Joann Lane and Miss Angelina Lane, Ft. Blackmore; a half-sister, Mrs. Bobby Jean Mathes, Columbus, Ga.; and five brothers, Robert and Orvil Lane, Ft. Blackmore, and Edward, Junior and Billy Ray Lane, Baltimore, Md.

Harley is survived by five daughters, Mrs. Isaac Luther, Indianapolis, Ind., Mrs. John T. Hensley, Mrs. Leroy Joyner, Miss Fern Harley, and Miss Chrystal Harley, all of Kingsport; one son, Virgil Ray Harley, Indianapolis; one brother, John H. Harley, Bristol, Va.; and ten grandchildren.

Funeral services for Harley will be held Monday at 2 p.m. at the Scott County Funeral Home Chapel.  The Rev. Herman Quillen and the Rev. J. A. Mosley will officiate.  Burial will be in Holston View Cemetery.  Friends will serve as pallbearers.

The body will remain at the Scott County Funeral Home until time for services.

James Edward Lane

KINGSPORT – James E. (Edward) Lane, age 83, Kingsport, went to be with The Lord at 1:20 a.m. Sunday [9/25/2011] following a brief illness.

Born in Rye Cove, VA, he met and married the love of his life, Agnes Fields Lane, following a time of service to his country. A short time later, the couple moved to Kingsport where their only son, Eddie was born the next year.

Fifty six years ago, James went to work at Phillips Furniture Company in Weber City, VA, where he met a salesman named Lee Smith. Soon after Lee opened Rhoton and Smith Furniture Company, James went to work there, where he has been employed for the last 47 years.

James was very proud to be a veteran of the U.S. Army, and served our country in the Korean War. In 1960, James accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour. Soon afterwards, the family started attending Pendleton's Free Will Baptist Church, located in Ft. Blackmore, VA. This is the same church that he and Agnes have attended for all these years.

Shortly after he accepted Christ, he met and became close friends with "The Cooke Duet", a gospel singing husband and wife from Wise, VA. Over the next several years, James and his family spent nearly every weekend traveling with the Cookes to churches all across the region.

In 1970, he and Hubert Cooke started an annual all day Gospel Sing that grew to become the largest event of its kind in the country at that time... the Greenland Park Gospel Sing. At it's peak in the early 1990's, the Greenland Park Gospel Sing was known to draw estimated crowds in excess of 10,000. Through the promotion of this event, James became well known to artists and fans throughout the world of Southern and Bluegrass Gospel Music. James Lane often said that the best friends he had ever made in this life were the ones he made through Gospel Music.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Hobart and Kate Lane.

Surviving are his faithful companion of 58 years, Agnes Fields Lane; son, Eddie Lane of Kingsport; Daughter in law, who he considered to be more like a daughter, Janey Lane; His precious grandchildren, Mandi Anderson, Justin Lane, Rebeka Lane and Abbey Lane and his "grandson by marriage", Mandi's husband, Derek Anderson; sister, Mabel Dingus and husband, Audley, Ft. Blackmore, VA; brothers, Orbin Lane Gate City, VA and Claude Lane and wife. Sally, Ft. Blackmore, VA.; along with several nieces and nephews.

But James also had a large "extended family". Besides his biological family, he is also survived by some very special, very close friends who, after 49 years of loyal, loving friendship are really much more than just friends, the Cookes; Hubert and Jeanette, their sons, James, Ronnie and Donnie and all of their wives and kids.

Other extended family members include the dear friends he worked alongside for all these years... Lee and Dorcas Smith, Aaron Smith and Arvella Smith Lane.

Calling hours are from 5 to 7 p.m. at main chapel of Gate City Funeral Home in Gate City, VA. The funeral service will follow visitation and will be officiated by Rev. Kevin Sanders, Pastor of Pendleton's Free Will Baptist Church. Music will be provided by The Singing Cookes, The McGlothlins and the quartet from Pendleton's Church.

Burial will follow graveside services at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Holston View Cemetery. Military honors will be accorded by the American Legion.

Pallbearers will be Larry Lane, James Cooke, Ronnie Cooke, Donnie Cooke, Aaron Smith and very special friend, Dr. Stephen Jones.

Honorary Pallbearers include Hubert Cooke, Daniel Cooke, Clarence Nelms, JB Spencer, Kevin Spencer and Wade Spencer
