Obituary -- Lana Twaddle 1950-2016

Lana Sue Twaddle was born on April 11th, 1950 to Nicholas Bradford Halstead and Ann Lee (Richards) Halstead in Albany, Mo. She passed from this life on September 18th, 2016 at Lake Ozark, Mo. 

Lana was married to Michael Twaddle on December 1, 1973 and he survives her in the home.  Lana was preceded in death by her father.

Lana was a long time bank manager at Kansas City North and retired after 30 years as a Vice President.  She was very active in many civic clubs and was a past member and officer of the North Kansas City Chamber of Commerce.

Soon after her retirement she and Mike moved to the lake where she again became very active in the Newcomer’s club and three book clubs.

Lana’s nieces were the joy of her life. She was their example of ‘real class’ and inspired them to excel and to be whatever they desired to become.  Family was her passion and “Crazy Aunt Lana” stories will be passed on for ages to come.

Lana’s Grandparents, J.R. and Delia Richards were a great influence in her life.  Their family stories and weekends tending family stones at cemeteries got Lana deeply involved in genealogy.  She was often teased she cared more for the dead than the living. 

Lana is survived by her husband, Michael, of the home, her Mother, Ann Lee Halstead, Albany and her sister, Barbara (Terry) Findley of Siloam Springs, Mo. as well as her nieces, Melissa (Rob) Cole, Angela (Kirk) Davis and Amanda Findley (Ben Fletcher). Also surviving are many great nieces and nephews.

Private family services will be held at a later date.
