Ilene M. Lane Nursing Scholarship Endowment
Ilene M. (Master) Lane passed away in 2007. She joined the convent at age 16 and was released from her vows, by papal authority, six years later. Mrs. Lane became a Practical Nurse and, in 1942, joined the U.S. Army and served in the 157th Hospital Unit. She continued her career in nursing after an honorable discharge, practicing her profession as an OB/GYN nurse in rural Indiana until her retirement. Her son, Dr. Thomas H. Lane, former Vice President of Instruction and Learning at Delta College and former Chair of the Delta College Board of Trustees, and other families established this endowment in her memory.
