Barbara Ann Lane, age 84, of Quincy, died on Friday, April 5, 2019 at 3:05 am in Good Samaritan Home.

Barbara was born August 18, 1934 in Peoria, Illinois the daughter of Gerald M. and Marie G. O'Donnell Johnson.

Barbara served her community as an employee of St. Mary's Hospital and later Blessing Hospital for 39 years, retiring in 2005. She was a devoted member of St. Francis Catholic Church. Most importantly, Barbara, or Ahmie, as she is affectionately called, dedicated her life as a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend to many. Her belief in the family bond was extraordinary. She was a role model to all whose lives she touched. Even in the end stages of her battle with Alzheimer's, Ahmie leaves a humble legacy of kindness, compassion, integrity and generosity for all of mankind. May we all choose to carry her legacy forward.

Survivors include five children, Lori Ann Nyi of Galesburg, IL, Jerry (Lisa) Lane of North Kansas City, MO, Carrie (Tom) Engebretson of Galesburg, IL, Mary Margaret (Jim) O'Donnell of Fowler, IL, and Patrick (Cheryl) Lane of Quincy; 13 grandchildren, Harrison Lane, Emily (Kyle) Hendrickson, Jessica Lane, Hannah (Ron Frillman) O'Donnell, Simon (Alyssa) Nyi, Audrey (Robert) Utterback, Ivy and Lily Engebretson, Kourtney (Derek) Price, Lauren Garner, Madison Lane, and Riley and Jacob Lane; and five great-grandchildren.

So sorry to hear of Barb‘s passing. My thoughts are with all the family. She was so very proud of her kids and you all took such good care of her. I have many good memories going to children’s mass with her at St. Peter’s Church and breakfast afterward at Hy-Vee. What a gracious lady.
