June T Lane
June 1, 1927 – June 9, 2018
June Lane, 91 of Portland, Oregon passed away June 9, 2018.
She was born in Mayes County, Oklahoma on June 1, 1927. She was the baby of eleven children - having nine older brothers and one older sister.
June married Hugh T. Lane in February 17, 1950. She worked as a nurse her entire career; first in Wyoming, then in Springfield, Oregon, and finally at Providence Portland, retiring from there in the early 1990’s after over twenty-five years of service.
She had a passion for her family and was always ready for a family gathering. She is survived by daughter Kimberly A. Krippaehne (nee Lane) and daughter-in-law Dorothy Lane; grandchildren Shawn Albert, Sarah Lane, Desiree Bell (nee Albert), Rebecca Albert, and Ava Krippaehne, and by great-grandchildren Lilly Center, Christopher Center, Jaiden Lane, Audree Bell, and Rilee Lane. June was predeceased by husband Hugh T. Lane, son Russell J. Lane and Robin A. Albert (nee Lane).
June was the light of any gathering and always had a bright smile on her face. She loved her family fiercely and dedicated her life to her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She enjoyed family parties and spending time together.
She was always a veracious reader and would often stay up all night to finish a great story. She loved road trips and spending time at the beach.
Although June was not tall in stature, she wore large, dangly earrings every day to complete her look. Never without her hair done, lipstick on and nails painted, June was the epitome of a classy lady!
A memorial Celebration of Life will be held at 11 am on Friday, June 29 at Lincoln Memorial Funeral Home, 11801 SE Mt. Scott Blvd. in Portland. June will be privately interred with her husband Hugh at Willamette National Cemetery.

I will never forget the first time I met June Lane through her daughter, Kim over 20 years ago. Her sweet, funny, sassy, strong nature has stayed strong these past 20+ years and I am amazed and inspired by her love of family, life and a good laugh. She is truly an inspiration for good living and gratitude. She will be deeply missed by many and my only regret was not spending more time with her with the time I was given. I truly thought she would live forever as the woman has had 9+ lives. Thank you, June, for your gift of laughter, a good story, unbelievable strength and devotion to family and friends.
