A proud alumna of Thomasville High School, her musical talent shone through her clarinet performances in the band. Her thirst for knowledge propelled her to Georgia Southern College, where she not only earned a BSEd with an emphasis in Math but also became the first in her family to graduate from college.

Wherever she lived, she learned how to cook the local cuisine and could easily have been a tour guide in Florence, Italy. Lana's passion for education never waned. She obtained a Masters in Education from the University of Arizona, all while expecting her fourth child. Her innovative teaching techniques and commitment to excellence left a lasting impact on her students.Above all, Lana's devotion to her family and her faith stood paramount. Her kitchen, often filled with the aroma of fresh herbs and her signature dishes, was a testament to her love for cooking and healthy living. Her skillful hands created heirloom needlework pieces, each stitch a symbol of her love and dedication.Lana's steadfast faith in Jesus illuminated her path, providing strength and comfort through trials and triumphs. Cherished for her fervent prayers, she believed deeply in the power of intercession, dedicating her later years to enveloping her family's future generations in prayerful protection. She was a member of Statesboro New Covenant Church and, later, Peachtree Corners Baptist Church, where she formed lifelong friendships and contributed to her community's spiritual life.The Brown family extends heartfelt gratitude to the Seniors Class at Peachtree Corners Baptist Church for their wonderful community of friendship, love, and support-Ron and Lana cherished your class deeply. Special thanks are also due to Agape Hospice, Emmanuel's Healthcare Services, and the Mansions Assisted Living at Sandy Springs for their loving care and support during Lana's final days.Lana's legacy lives on through her four daughters: Karen (Walt Waldin) Hunter, Rhonna (Alex) Gurevich, Mendie (David) Hogan, and Stephanie (Phil) Sadd; her brother Lamar "Mozzy" (Martha Sue) Crawford; her adored grandchildren Sarah (Dave) Ferguson, Lon (Brooke) Hogan, Ben (Madison Hoover) Hogan and Grace Sadd; great-grandchildren: Kalilah, Sean and Ashleigh; and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family members who loved her.The Brown family invites friends and loved ones to celebrate Lana's life on Thursday, February 22, 2024, at Peachtree Corners Baptist Church, with Dr. David Shaw presiding.
