Our beautiful and talented Lana Lynette (McCabe) Wiscombe has left this earthly life. She passed quietly in the hospital on July 15th, 2019 after many years of fighting several chronic diseases that caused her to suffer in pain. She is free of pain! We will all miss her terribly; her laughter, her songs, her energy, her silly jokes, and her telling us what we should do!! Ha! She loved deeply…. her sons, her daughters-in-law, her grandchildren, her great-grandchildren, her sisters, her brothers-in-law, her nieces and nephews down to her great-great nieces and nephews, her I-think-of-you-as my children/family, and her friends. She was loyal! She was strong! She had a voice that should have been famous! She never stopped missing our momma and daddy or her granddaughter, Delila Lynette. Now she joins them and can sing with our momma again, dance with our daddy again, and hold her little granddaughter tight!
She was born March 4, 1942, in Oakland, California, as our dad was in the Navy and mom went there to be close and, of course, you know, the war. They soon brought Jo and Lana back to Meriden, Kansas where she attended school. She married in 1960 and gave birth to her precious Jerry Charles in 1962. In 1969 her adored Robert Clarence was born and soon after they all moved to Salmon, Idaho. She held several positions in the insurance business in Idaho Falls and Blackfoot. Owned a couple of houses. Traveled with a band as the singer. Boy! Could she sing!!! She loved going to Karaoke and when she did everyone cheered and wanted to do duets with her. She most recently lived in Buhl, Idaho where she was able to see her three little grandsons daily and where Rob and Krystal cared for her and gave her love and comfort. Jerry Charles lived close by as well as her granddaughters, Char and Nicole, and their children who were all the greatest treasures of her life. Along with granddaughter, Delilah Raychelle, who she visited in Nevada as often as she could, and always loving and keeping track of her grandson, James Wayne. She loved her family beyond measure.
I and all her loved ones will miss her immensely. Earth’s light has dimmed; but, oh how brightly the heavens are shining. Till we meet again, sissy, I love you….I love you….I love you!!!
Cremation was under the direction of Serenity Funeral Chapel Life Celebration Center & Cremation Services of Idaho, Twin Falls.
