Lena Grace Lane, 97, was taken home by her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Friday, May 7, 2021. She passed away peacefully at home with family at her side. Lena lived her entire life in Kingsport. Lena was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. Her true passion was caring for her family. She loved kids and is remembered by hundreds of boys from the Kingsport Boys Club (most of them called her Granny) where she and her loving husband, Hobert, operated the snack bar/canteen for many years. Lena was an excellent cook, which you could tell by looking at her boys, and was well known for her Sunday family dinners, her Christmas and Thanksgiving feasts. She loved to garden, care for her flowers and yard, she was a proud former winner of the Kingsport Beautification Award. Lena also loved to can and put vegetables in the freezer, make pickles, chow chow, apple butter and preserves. She loved to gather with the neighbor ladies and friends on her back patio to sit and watch the “world go by.” She will be sorely missed by the many people she blessed with her love, charity, kindness and friendship. Praise the Lord Jesus Christ and all glory to Him!
