She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Allen and Leona McCafferty, and paternal grandparents, Lloyd and Sarah Chapman, and by her father, Bud Chapman in 1986. Alane was a mother before anything else. She derived much enjoyment from spending time with her cherished loved ones. Activities she enjoyed with her family included hunting, fishing, going to races, coaching her children’s sports teams and having cookouts in the backyard. She lived fearlessly and inspired all she encountered. She will be greatly missed in the roles she filled in the family as a wife, daughter, mother, grandmother, granddaughter, aunt, sister, niece and friend. You are forever in our hearts and will never be forgotten. Our love for you lasts an eternity. Alane’s family will receive friends from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 P.M.
