Our precious Lana, age 71, died at home with her husband on October 20, 2012 at 10:55 AM and is now at peace and with her Lord. Lana was born in Tularosa, NM on August 25, 1941 the daughter of Virgil and Frances Thomas. Lana was a devoted wife, mother, daughter, and sister. We will all miss her very deeply.
Lana was preceded in death by her parents and is survived by her husband Gary Endicott of Shady Cove, daughter Jana Marcuse of Redlands, CA, sister Sheila Orr of Hemet, CA, and brother Gary Thomas of Temecula, CA.
Lana moved to California with her mother and siblings when she was 10 years old. She attended local schools in the San Gabriel Valley with undergraduate studies at Mt San Antonio College in Walnut, CA and graduate studies at the Claremont Colleges in Claremont, CA. Her business career included mid and senior management positions in major corporations. Lana was a very smart and talented lady. Lana and Gary enjoyed travels with trips across the US and foreign destinations.
Gary and Lana retired to Trail OR in 2003 to “their spot” on the Rogue River. In their retirement years Lana was a great travel partner on RV trips across the country always keeping a daily diary of their activities. Many of her favorite travel spots were in western portion of the US.
It can truly be said that anyone who met her, loved her. She was active in the community and enjoyed making life better for children. Additionally Lana was a devoted savior of critters needing rescue. This is only a couple of examples of her loving heart that is so well known by all who knew her. While her health allowed she was active in the Upper Rogue Artists, bible study group at the Trail Community Church as well as many community events.
Lana, we have loved you and will miss your sweet, loving and caring life during which you gave so much too so many. Memorial service will be announced at a later date.
