You wouldn’t find Lana in the kitchen as often as you would find her in the garden with her hoe, she loved tending to the garden and growing flowers. She started each day selecting a cap or hat, as she had many. She loved her Irish heritage, ready to dance a little gig. She loved to travel, and she did, making it to all 48 contiguous states. Say the word “go” and she was ready. Her trips to Ireland were the favorite.
Funeral will be private with immediate family.
