Martha L Lane

April 28, 1932 — June 24, 2024

Howard, OH

Martha L. (Voight) Lane passed peacefully on June 24, 2024, in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, to join her Lord and Jesus Christ. She lived a long and fulfilling life and was a joy to her family and friends.

 Martha Louise Voight was born on April 28, 1932, to Charles and Laura (Geier) Voight on a farm east of Jamestown, Missouri. Her mother unexpectedly passed away in 1934 and her father later married Pearl Porter in 1936. Martha graduated from Jamestown High School in 1949 and moved to Kansas City to work at Hallmark Corporation. 

 Martha met John D. Lane in 1950 and they were married on November 25, 1951, at the Grandview Baptist Church, Grandview, Missouri. Later, Martha would work at Stuppy’s Floral Company for 11 years. She is survived by one son, Donald Lane (Carri), two grandsons, Dakota Lane and Dustin Lane, and two great-grandchildren, Decklan Garrett Lane and Dallas Aryn Lane. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, stepmother, and sister, Esther. 

While living in Missouri, Martha was dedicated to her Ruth Sunday School class with Claycomo Baptist Church and volunteered many hours helping the church. She was a den mother several years and was a proud recipient of the Bicentennial Merit Badge in 1976. She was a loving and doting grandmother to her grandsons and great-grandchildren. Martha was a 29-year season ticket holder of the Kansas City Chiefs football team and her love of the Chiefs was second only to her Lord and family.

When she moved to Ohio in 2020, she regularly attended First Baptist Church of Mt. Vernon in Mt. Vernon, Ohio. 

Martha leaves behind many beloved nieces, nephews, great- and great-great nieces and nephews and cherished family and friends. 

A memorial service will be held Saturday, July 20, 2024, at the Claycomo Baptist Church, 312 E. Longfellow Street, Claycomo, Missouri, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. No graveside service is planned. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Addus Hope Foundation in Columbus, Ohio, to assist those in hospice care.
