When anyone became friends with LaNell, as far as she was concerned, they were friends for life and pretty much became everyone’s Memaw. She had a very strong liking for Houston Texans football and the Astros. She enjoyed spending time with family on any occasion and loved playing card games such as Phase 10 and UNO. The world of dominos was her specialty and 42 was the game of choice. LaNell was the Dale Earnhardt of 42. She will be remembered as a loving, caring, and compassionate mother and Memaw.
