She was preceded in death by her parents and her siblings; Hardy Scott Lane, Harlan Lane, Jack Winston Lane, James Norman "Bo" Lane, Miriam Genter and Gerel Neal "Budgy" Lane.

She was a godly woman her entire life, with never-failing devotion and she was prepared to meet her Jesus.  She was a cherished member of Morning Star United Methodist Church acting as choir director at times, attending Bible Study, Sunday School and all Potlucks, where her famous Jalapeno Corn Casserole will go down in history!

She and her husband were volunteers at The Melting Pot Genealogical Society and loved researching their ancestors and finding long, lost relatives (on Rickís side.)

She had many talents.  She was a singer and dancer trained in Tap, Toe and Ballet.  In her youth, she sang on a Saturday morning radio show in Little Rock and performed on the travelling Hayride Circuit. She was also a talented Baton Twirler and won a Horace Heidt Talent Show in the 50ís.  She taught Baton Twirling for many years. She also devoted time to being Cub Scout, Brownie, and 4-H leaders for her children and their classmates.  

Rose was a beautiful, caring soul and drew many people to her.   She was a friend to many and even though she only had three children of her own, there are many people in her life who call her Mom!

She loved to travel, once taking a 3,600 mile round trip vacation from Hot Springs to New Mexico on the back of her husbandís motorcycle (in her 70ís!).  She and her husband also enjoyed travelling all over the U.S. in their camper to sightsee and visit relatives.

A memorial service will take place on Sunday, April 3, 2022 at Morning Star United Methodist Church, 3200 Spring St, Hot Springs, AR., 11:00am, with a luncheon for family and friends following.
