Alice Lane Blankenship

Alice Lane Blankenship became the most fabulous angel in Heaven on May 12, 2013.

Her life was a smile- a resilient, passionate, welcoming smile. When happiness was hard to find, she created her own. She'd sit on the beach having early morning conversations with God as she waited for the sun to come up, knowing it most certainly would.

Time spent with Alice was always time well spent. Her door was always open and each guest left with more joy, strength and confidence than they had before.

She is survived by her daughter, Nancy Pride and husband, Timothy of Panama City Beach; son, Douglas Blankenship and partner, Magnus Johansson of Stockholm, Sweden; granddaughter, the love of her life, Katherine Pride; brothe,r John Lane and wife, Barbara of Chattanooga, Tenn; four nieces and six nephews; and many other relatives and close friends.

Private services will be held.

In lieu of flowers, make someone smile today. Donate your time to your favorite charity, tell your loved ones what you love about them, go on an adventure.
