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.

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

A very heartfelt thank you goes out to the wonderful staff at Indian Path Hospital... especially the nurses and caregivers of the Transitional Care Unit on the seventh floor. We love you all.

Mary C. Lane

Obituary from Gate City Herald? – wife of Maldon Lane Sr

Mrs. Mary E. Lane, wife of M. A. Lane and daughter of E. P. and M. E. Quillen, was born July 28, 1877, and departed this life January 5, 1904, at 5 o’clock a. M. She professed faith in Christ at the age of 13 years and joined the M. E. Church, South, to which she lived a faithful member until her death. She was united in marriage to M. A. Lane June 26, 1898, and unto them were born two sweet children, a boy and girl. She loved her children as only a mother can. She knew she must soon be taken away from them. Her last Christian gift to her little son was a bible. She often talked of her departure and longed for that rest that awaits the children of God. On the morning before her death she called her husband to her side and said to him "I must soon leave you, stay close by me, train up my little children right and take good care of them." She then told him to get his autograph album and with trembling hand she wrote these lines:

Maldon, dear: --

I must soon leave you.

And stay with you no more;

But I hope we will meet in heaven,

Where sad parting comes no more.

Just before she died she called her father, mother, husband, brothers and sisters to her and kissed them and asked God to bless and keep them. She then asked us to sing "’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus" and while we sang it seemed she was almost too happy to stay on earth. She then lay quiet for some time, her last words were: "I feel go good." She then fell asleep in the arms of Jesus as calm and peaceful as a child in its mother’s arms.

Mary is not dead, but only sleeping

And we all this sleep must take;

We’ll be ever living ready,

Ere the rolling billows break;

For we know not what’s before us,

Nor how dark the way may be;

May our lamps be trimmed and burning,

When the summons comes for us.

What a blessed hope, dear friends, she is only gone on before. Ah, how strange some things doth appear to us, but our kind Heavenly Father knoweth best. We cannot tell why she was taken away from her husband and little children, but we would say to them she is a bright light in Heaven’s window for you, then cheer up as you journey through life you can look toward the home of the soul and say, dear Mary, I will meet you there. Dear children, you can look toward Heaven and say, mama is there, I will be good and when I die I will go there too. Then father, mother, brothers and sisters, remember her dying words and by the grace of God we shall meet dear Mary on the other side of the river of death, where we shall never part any more and all our troubles will be over. To all her friends and relatives we would say, let us so live that when the journey of life is drawing to a close and the shade of evening fall about us and the sabeled curtains of night gather around us, we can say, like the good sister, "I am ready to go, dear Lord, take me home" and fall asleep in the arms of Jesus and be carried by the angels safe through the pearly gates into the city of God.
