Obituary of Maxine Jean Lane
Passed peacefully away in her 79th year on June 18th, 2022 at the Carmelite House Long Term Care Home, Grand Falls-Windsor.
Predeceased by her parents Llewelyn and Theresa Saunders, her in-laws Roland and Sarah Lane, her siblings Joyce, Jim, and Wayne, and her beloved husband of 60 years Eric Calvin Lane who has been waiting for their reunion since his passing on February 15th, 2022.
Leaving to mourn her three sons, Gordon Todd (Karen), Kenneth Wayne (Michelle), and David Glenn (Tammy). Also leaving with special memories, her eight grandchildren, three step-grandchildren, and four great-grandsons. She will be greatly missed by brother Lloyd Saunders (Suzanne); sister Terri Saunders (Trevor Harrison); brothers in law Larry (Harriett) and Kevin (Carolyn); nieces, nephews and a large circle of other relatives and friends.
Jean was born in Glovertown, moved to Gander as a child and then returned to Glovertown where she met Eric and they married. She first worked as a teacher and then moved throughout the province for Eric’s work as she dedicated her time to raising their sons, eventually settling in Bishop’s Falls. There they answered the call to became United Church ministers, living and serving the Lord in several charges throughout Newfoundland. They retired back to Glovertown and then moved to Grand Falls-Windsor, where they spent the last 9 years. They had a beautiful life together and while she will be greatly missed it is a comfort to know they are now back together again.
The family would like to thank the home care workers who took such good care of Jean these last three years, and the staff at the Carmelite House for their kindness and help over the last 8 months, especially since Eric’s passing earlier this year.
Funeral service will be live stream on the Hoskins Funeral Home, Grand Falls-Windsor facebook.
