Dorothy Lane, 95, passed away at home, on November 5, 2021. She was born on December 7, 1925 in Everett, PA to the late Frank and Catherine Clevenger. Following graduation from Coventry High School, class of 1943, Dottie furthered her education at Kent State University, majoring in Education. She was a member of the Gamma Phi Betta sorority and earned her B.A. Degree in 1948.

Together they owned and operated Kent Upholstry (established 1943) and RLLKO (established 1982). Dottie was a member of the Southeast Church of the Nazarene and board member of the Kent Church of the Nazarene for many years.
