[ARCHIVED] Former Councilwoman Vickery laid to rest

Lane Vickery

Former Indian Trail Councilwoman Lane Vickery was laid to rest Tuesday following services at Indian Trail Presbyterian Church. She passed away Friday, May 26, at the age of 75.

Vickery, who served on the Town Council from December 2001 to December 2005, was dedicated to her community in numerous ways. Not only did she commit her time to represent her fellow residents as a Councilwoman, but she also was instrumental in the development of the Union West Regional Library into what it is today – insisting that seniors have a local place to enjoy a cup of coffee and read the paper. Additionally, she worked to protect the appearance and beautification of the Indian Trail cemetery, was a founding member of the Bank of Union, and was a presence at a number of local civic groups and nonprofits.

“Lane was not only a leader, but also an achiever,” Indian Trail Arts and Historical Society President Robert Hinson said. “An achiever accomplishes objectives. The Union West Library is one of those achievements that benefits all the citizens of Indian Trail.”

Perhaps Vickery’s biggest show of just how much she loved Indian Trail comes from a story many have shared recently: Upon learning her home was a target of annexation by neighboring Stallings years ago, Vickery immediately walked out of her home in house coat and pajamas to visit Indian Trail Mayor Kindley and make sure her home was officially annexed into Indian Trail. In her mind, she had never been a part of another community, and that was not going to change. Indian Trail was, and forever would be, her home.

Others are quick to relate stories of her generosity - whether that was always being happy to put together a hot meal for a friend in need, or dropping off flowers to brighten up your day. If you came home to flowers on your porch, you knew Lane had been by for a visit. There is not enough space available here to tell all the great stories from what was truly an inspirational life.

Flags at Indian Trail government facilities were lowered Friday in Vickery’s honor, and Mayor Michael Alvarez has ordered a proclamation in her memory. Funeral services were held Tuesday at Indian Trail Presbyterian Church, where Vickery was a lifelong member.
