Also preceding her in death were parents, William Glen and Stella Baker Lane; siblings, Alta Lane Lare, Vergie Lane Stewart and Glen “Joe” Lane.

Madge and Betsy shared more than a sibling relationship; it was sisters, mother, mentor and best friends. Their love for each other endured many journeys, good and bad. However, their devotion to each other was steadfast and will be never-ending.
Madge was an athlete, educator, mentor, leader, advocate for children, and those less fortunate. She was an incredibly strong woman, who impacted and touched many lives, both personally and professionally.
