Lane, Doris Jeannette (nee McLaren) – Passed away peacefully, surrounded by family at Billings Court Manor, Burlington on Tuesday, January 28, 2020 in her 101st year. Doris spent 71 years married to her beloved husband, the late Dr. Norman Lane (2014), whom she met at Queen’s University. Loving mother to Doug (Ann), Brian, Steve (Carol), Alan (Robin), and Christopher (Cristina). Caring grandmother to Michael, Andrea, Carolyn, Dorian, Alyssa, Chloe, Hudson, Amanda, and Ryan. Predeceased by her sister Helen Hillen. She took great joy in spending summers at the cottage with family and friends, cooking gourmet meals. A private family service has taken place.
I just heard about Doris’ passing via John Bryans email… our condolences. I will remember her wonderful presence at many Fishing Bay gatherings and of course seeing how much pleasure she took in swimming up and down the bay. A wonderful lady.
Hope to see you all keeping up the Fishing Bay tradition that she was such an inspirational part of.
We remember Dr. and Mrs. Lane very well. A beautiful and kind couple, in the Binkley neighborhood. Doug, your mother especially embedded in my memory, who made a certain young boy bring a rose in a bowl to a certain female friend.. my condolences to you and your family. She lived a long and happy life, loved by so many..
The Lane family home was always a lively fun place to visit when I grew up on Thorndale Crescent. Mrs. Lane was ever so kind. Brian’s birthday party was especially memorable to me with the chocolate cake that Mrs. Lane made herself. My condolences to all.
