Cindy was born June 16, 1949 in Bath, the daughter of the late Alderman Francis Gleason and Virginia Mae Kilbury Gleason. Raised in Wayne, and educated in Hammondsport, she has been a lifelong area resident. On July 29, 1967 in Wayne, she married Malcolm S. Lane and settled in Crystal Valley. Together they owned and operated Lanes Yamaha Inc., in Watkins Glen.

Having married a race car enthusiast, she quickly became her husband’s biggest fan and supporter. Her sons were raised to also love motorsports and she followed their racing endeavors. She was involved in all aspects of the family business and racing circuit. She was especially well known for her involvement and support of The Empire Super Sprints

alongside her husband, sponsoring The Rookie of The Year Award. In her free time, she enjoyed scrapbooking but her passion was her family.

She is loved and will be forever missed by her husband of 51 years, Malcolm S. Lane at home; two sons, Craig A. (Toni Monroe) Lane, and Keith A. (Amy) Lane, both of Crystal Springs; two grandchildren, Anthony (Carly) Zeno of Newark, Trenton F. Lane of Crystal Springs; her mother, Virginia K. Gleason of Penn Yan; a brother, James A. (Paula) Gleason of Lockport; a sister, Jodie Flood of Bath; and several nieces, nephews, and in-laws.
