     Glenwood, Jan. 13 --  (Special) -- Funeral services were held in the Presbyterian church here Friday for Albert Edward Lane, 60, who death from pneumonia occurred on Tuesday, following a very brief illness. Services were conducted by the Rev. P.J. Pike, resident minister, and interment followed in the Grange Mt. Adams cemetery with Gardners Funeral Service in charge. Born in Osceo, Wis., Sept. 15, 1880, Mr. Lane is survived by his wife, Irene, three children, Ray, Velma and Joyce, two sons by a former marriage, Glen, of White Salmon and Wesley of Portland, a granddaughter, Jerry Lane of White Salmon; several step-children, of which Mrs. Don Hanson, of Glenwood, is one; two sisters, Mrs. McMullen, Longview and Mrs. H.W. Garrabrant of Hood River, Oregon. Mr. Lane was well known in western Klickitat county during early day logging operations north of White Salmon in the Northwestern lake region and in the Gilmer valley section. In 1920 he settled with his family on the farm above Gilmer valley that is known as the Lane place, or to the old timers as "The Little Prairie." In 1935 he moved his family to Glenwood, where cattle raising and farming was undertaken on a larger scale on the former Shaw place, a pioneer homestead at Glenwood, and range rights were obtained of Gus Hilging on the Yakima Indian reservation. His death came as a shock to the community, where friends extend the family deepest sympathy. Illness resulted from a cold contracted while working through the worst possible weather for the local P.U.D. clearing, and from a determined effort to fight it off and not surrender to illness. Pallbearers were John Gilmer, Snowden, and Harry DeVoe, S.S. Surface, Frank Leaton, Ivan McCumber and Fred Feller. Singers were Mrs. Fred Feller and Mrs. Homer Babcock. Organist, Mrs. Ward Holloway.
