Lana and her family moved to Texas when she was just a young girl. She was raised and attended school in Point Comfort, Texas.

Lana and Dan lived in Pearland for 13 years before retiring and moving to Coldspring, Texas in 2007.
Lana loved cooking, shopping, and gambling but bowling was her absolute favorite thing to do, and she was good at it, like really good! But above all else (even bowling) Lana loved her family with all her heart and she will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
