JEAN DELORES LANE November 27, 1927 - October 31, 2012 Jean Delores Lane went home to be with God on October 31,2012 after a brief illness. She was 84 years old when she passed away in Red Bluff, her home for many decades. Jean's life included heartache and personal loss, yet she was always a warm, generous, and loving person. Her deep faith in God empowered her to soar above the circumstances of life. She was an inspiration to the children who survive her: Lana, Kevin, Lisa, and Kari Su. They miss her deeply, but know she is at peace. Jean's only sibling, Doris Meurer, keenly feels the loss of her older sister. Seven grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, numerous nephews, nieces and friends also mourn Jean's passing. Jean was born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota on November 27, 1927. She and her husband Vern moved to Red Bluff early in their marriage, seeking a better (and warmer) life. Jean loved to volunteer her time, and was an enormous asset to the Hope Chest, Hospice Thrift Store, Home Help for Hispanic Mothers, the Salvation Army, the Lord's Table, and Sacred Heart Women's Guild. If someone gave a gift to Jean, the odds are that she gave it away to someone whom she felt needed it more. In that same spirit, the family asks that in lieu of flowers a donation be made to the
