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.

Nora M. (Starnes) Nelson Lane

A 57-year-old Kingsport area woman was killed Wednesday night [2/21/1973] when a tractor-trailer hit her small foreign car from the rear on Highway 11-W in front of Waterman's Texaco Station about ten miles east of Kingsport.

Highway Patrol trooper Russ Tipton said Mrs. Nora Starnes Lane, Rt. 7, Wadlow Gap Road, apparently pulled out of the service station about 6:45 p.m. and headed west in the inside lane.  She switched to the outside lane and the truck, which Tipton said was about 30 feet behind, hit the rear of her car and knocked it over 100 feet into a ditch.

"She must not have checked her rear-view mirror," the trooper said.  Tipton said her car must have been traveling about 35 or 40 miles per hour when the accident occurred and the truck "about 55."

The tractor-trailer was driven by Terry Wayne Hallbrook, 22, Rt. 1, Bells, Tenn., and is owned by Agricultural Services Associates of Bells.  Hallbrook has been charged with voluntary manslaughter and is scheduled for a hearing Feb. 28 in General Sessions Court.  He was not injured.

Also unhurt was a passenger in the Lane car, Mrs. Lane's grandson whose name the troopers didn't determine.  Tipton said the car also carried a small dog that was killed in the collision.

Mrs. Lane was pronounced dead on arrival at Holston Valley Community Hospital at 7:20 p.m. Wednesday.

She was born in Scott County, Va. and had been a resident of Sullivan County most of her life.  She attended the Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church.

Survivors include her husband, Bill D. Lane; daughters, Mrs. Wayne (Kaye) Medlin, Kingsport, and Mrs. Elmer (Patsy) Luster, Texas City, Tex.; five grandchildren; sisters, Mrs. Jerry (Lantha) Gibson and Mrs. George (Mabel) Milhorn, both of Kingsport.

There is no way to convey just how precious Melissa was to all of us. Her beautiful smile lit up the room when she came in, and she kept that smile no matter how much she was suffering. She never complained about her sickness, but continually thanked and praised God for His goodness to her. She was a bold witness for the LORD and wanted everyone to know her Savior.

She was preceded in sleep by her beloved parents, Rev. Carson “Gene” and Frances Todd; her brother-in-law, Brad Lane; (and special mention her grandparents-in-law, Rev. William & Kathleen Lane); and many more extended family members.

Those of us still waiting to be reunited are husband, Robby Lane; daughter, Tirzah Lane; son, Chase Lane, all of the home; father and mother in law, Bob and Mary Ann Lane, Hiltons; beloved sisters, Sharon Wade, Kingsport; Susan (Eddie) James, Kathy (Dwight) Taylor, Sara (Denny) Austin, all of Gate City, and Michelle (Randall) Stapleton, Church Hill; beloved brothers, Michael Todd, Kingsport and Mark (Brenda) Todd, Gate City; aunts, Shirley and Imogene Tipton. She also has numerous nieces and nephews, and great-nieces and great-nephews who loved her dearly. Also her friend Chris Cowden who loved her so, and numerous other special friends and former co-workers.

Melissa also made many friends through her previous home church, Victory Baptist, and her current home church, Calvary Lighthouse Baptist. She loved her churches and they loved her. The Children’s Church kids had a very special place in her heart.

We are forever grateful to her friend and partner in her battle with cancer, Dr. Daryl Pierce, FNP Kellie Mayden, and the wonderful staff at Norton Cancer Center, KHO, you all are AWSOME!
