ZOE A. LANE, age 17
Of New Bremen, died Sunday evening, July 28, 2019, as the result of a motor vehicle accident in Mercer County. She was born on February 8, 2002, the daughter of Larry and Donna (Wolters) Lane who survive in New Bremen. Also surviving are her sisters, Hannah Lane and Tess Lane, both of New Bremen, her paternal grandparents, John and Georgeann Lane of Brownsburg, IN, formerly of Manson, IA, her maternal grandfather, Lavern Wolters of Coldwater, her aunts and uncles: Pam and Rick Hindman, of Venice, FL, Jackie and Anton Arnoldy of Brownsburg, IN, Joyce DeStefano of Ft. Wayne, IN, Diane and Joe Siegrist of Union City, IN, Shirley and Kevin Fullenkamp of St. Henry, Steve and Deb Wolters of Celina, Jane Jones of St. Henry, Brenda and Ken Homan of Maria Stein, and Lynn and Ron Broering of New Weston, along with many close cousins and amazing friends. She was preceded in death by her maternal grandmother, Alfrieda Wolters.
Zoe was one of a kind; a fearless, determined and strong-willed young lady who loved life and lived each day to the fullest. She was a talented dancer and also excelled in gymnastics. She was an accomplished diver, diving for the New Bremen Barracudas Dive team for many years. She also had a passion for hula-hoop dancing and could choreograph a routine ready for performance in just minutes. She enjoyed giving her performances and won awards for her artistry at local events and as far away as Myrtle Beach. Zoe would have been a junior at New Bremen High School where she was involved in the art and music programs. She was a member of the Church of the Holy Redeemer in New Bremen where she was a server for mass. She had recently started working at Behm’s Landing as a hostess.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Friday, August 2, 2019, at 10:30 A.M. at the Church of the Holy Redeemer in New Bremen with Rev. Fr. Thomas Dorn officiating.

I “watched” Zoe grow up through the loving words of her aunt and my friend, Joyce DeStefano. Joyce would proudly describe Zoe’s many talents and gifts and also her awards and accomplishments.
Please accept my sincere sympathy for your profound and unspeakable loss.
