Clarice E. Lane, 71, of Oregon and formerly of Milwaukee and Lac Courte Oreilles, passed away on July 31, 2019, at her residence.
Clarice Elizabeth Lane was born Dec. 9, 1947, in Milwaukee, the daughter of Clarence Sr. and Lucille (Karns) Lane. She was united in marriage with James Schlender in 1969; they later divorced in 1984. They had five children. Clarice returned to school after she had her children, completing high school in 1979 at the Lac Courte Oreilles High School. Later she would graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in criminal justice from Mount Senario College.
She made her career serving as a security professional in various levels of management in the greater Madison and Milwaukee area. While serving as a security officer in Milwaukee at the Potawatomi Bingo and Casino, she performed CPR on a customer and saved a person’s life. She was always proud of that moment, and she was featured in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel for her courageous act. She also will be remembered for her laugh and her stories.
