Hettie Lee Hall Lane
Hettie Lee Hall Lane of Oklahoma City went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Tuesday, June 8, 2021. It would be impossible to number the lives Hettie touched during her 87 years, through her helping spirit, her biting sense of humor, her skills as a business tax preparer, or the simple, tough grace with which she fought a variety of health issues through her later years.
Hettie was born in Oklahoma City to Flossie and Joseph Elbert Hall on January 18, 1934. She grew up and attended school in Oklahoma City with her brother Junior Hall and sisters Berta Lou Duke and Norma Maloney, all of whom preceded her in death. One of the great joys in her life was her 62-year marriage to Paul James Lane, who preceded her in death in 2015.
Hettie spent her entire life in Oklahoma City, worked for Southwest Coin and Stamp for many years, and served as an independent tax preparer for several south Oklahoma City businesses. Hettie and Paul experienced the joys of life through many summers water skiing on Lake Murray with family and friends. They also enjoyed many weekends riding their motorcycles in the Colorado Mountains, and on numerous trips throughout the United States. She aided Paul in their extensive genealogical research into the Lane, Hall, and numerous other families, completed college coursework to enhance her tax preparation knowledge, and was a vital participant in the Malcom Hunter Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), where she served as Regent. She enjoyed her later years in the company of her dog, Coco, and attending services when able at Southern Hills Baptist Church.
Hettie is survived by her niece, Linda Orrson, and Linda’s husband Matthew, of Kingston, Oklahoma; brothers-in-law Dick Maloney, Richard L. Lane, and sister-in-law LaVonne Whitney, all of Oklahoma City. She is also survived by niece Cynthia Ehart, and her husband, Steven, of Overland Park, Kansas, as well as nephew Richard E. Lane, and his wife, Bridgette, of Oklahoma City, and nephew David Whitney, and his wife, Katherine, also of Oklahoma City.
Services are to be held 10 a.m. Saturday, June 12, 2021, at the Resthaven Chapel at SW 104th and Walker, with graveside services immediately following at Resurrection Cemetery.
