Lane, Glorianna Lee - Las Cruces  
An Obituary only gives the bare basics of a person's life and Glo was much more than a birth and death date. Glo led a full, rich and productive life. She was gifted with a lot of different talents and abilities. She had a quiet and beautiful disposition but she also had a very dry sense of humor. She had many and varied talents. She was an excellent pianist and organist as well as having strong artistic abilities. But her best talent was being a great Mother and Grandmother. She enjoyed every minute of her time with her children and grandchildren. She once said that she knew she would never get to see her grandchildren grown up so she made every minute with them count. Together, they made a lot of good memories for them to have for the rest of their lives. There were tea parties every afternoon on the patio, games to be played, stories to be read, late night talks to have and cookies to make. She was also a true pioneer woman. When she married Alton in 1955, they left on an adventure to homestead a farm in Idaho, where they lived for over 15 years. Those years brought two exceptional sons and an occupation in newspaper publication that both of them would pursue for most of their lives. February 15th of this year marked the 60th year of their union as husband and wife. Glo began working for the Quitaque Tribune when she was 13 years old, starting by folding papers to mail. She then moved on to learn to run the Linotype and soon could run every machine at the newspaper. When they settled in Idaho, Alton began farming and Glo went to work at the local paper in Rupert. She rapidly gained a reputation of being the best Linotype operator, not only in Rupert, but in all of Idaho. Soon, Alton joined her at the paper and he became Editor until they sold their farm and purchased the Ruidoso News in Ruidoso, New Mexico and moved the family in 1970. They published that paper for over 13 years together frequently having their sons help in the endeavor. As the family saying goes, ""The family that slaves together, stays together""! After they sold the newspaper, they continued their teamwork running the Multiple Listing Service in Ruidoso. They also invested in real estate, buying and selling several properties in the area. She never stopped being active working on their new house ""The Domes"" doing a complete remodel and helping roof her son's house when she was in her 70's. Glo was also active in her community as a member of the Ruidoso PEO club as well as a true and loyal friend to all who knew her. She and Alton hosted many class reunions and gatherings at their house in Ruidoso for her PEO sisters and Quitaque High School classmates. They have remained friends and stayed in touch all these years. Glo is leaving behind a family and many friends and others whose lives she touched, improved and who loved and cherished her. She will be sorely missed for her kind spirit, loving nature, strength, and determination. Glo was indeed a woman in purple who tended to her family, friends obligations and life's challenges with a cheerful happy attitude and a larger than life loving heart. This prose tells you what she would want us all to think of when we think of her: ""Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away into the next room. Whatever we were to each other we still are. Call me by my old familiar name. Speak to me the same easy way you always have. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it always was. There is absolute unbroken community. Why should I be out of your mind because I am out of your sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is well. Nothing is past. Nothing has been lost. One brief moment and all will be as before --- only better. Infinitely happier because we will be all together forever. "" She peacefully left this earth on May 17, 2015 surrounded by her loving family. She was born on July 26, 1935 in Canyon, Texas. She married Alton Eugene Lane on February 15, 1955 in Clovis, New Mexico. She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Alton Lane of Las Cruces, New Mexico, two sons, Kevin Blake Lane of Seattle, Washington, Gregory David and his wife Diane Lane of LaMesa, New Mexico, three grandchildren, Luke and Sara Lane of LaMesa and Matthew Perry of Germany. Her two sisters, Cloris Martin of Sherman, Texas, Aleta and husband Bill Sperry of Quitaque, Texas, her sister-in-law, Rita Guest of Turkey, Texas, her niece, Leigh Ann North, and six other nieces and nephews and numerous cousins and friends. Preceding her in death were her parents, Seburn and Orby Netherland, In-Laws, Luke and Chloe Lane, 3 Brothers-in-Law, Olen Lane, Smith Guest, and Barney Joe Martin, a Sister-in-Law, Margaret Lane and nephew Cody Sperry. A celebration of her life will be held at the Community United Methodist Church in Ruidoso, New Mexico onMay 23, 2015 at 2:00 PM. We ask that all who knew and loved this amazing women join us and share your stories and memories of her.
