Mrs. Lane was my Girl Scout leader for many years. She took our troop all over the country. Wisconsin, Virginia, Michigan. She also encouraged us to take advantage of Wider Opportunities. I also earned my First Class award under her leadership. She was a great leader. Wonderful memories from my time in Girl Scouts. RIP Mrs. Lane. My condolences to her family.
