Sherman (Lane) Anthony passed away on December 15, 2016. He was born April 1, 1958. Lane was a lover of education and spent his life teaching kids with multiple disabilities. He had a way of coaxing out the best in each child and he loved them all like his own kids. Lane was a great teacher and loyal friend. He had a kind heart and made a difference in so many lives. Lane was a lifelong Hawkeye and Packers fan and enjoyed watching the games with family. He was the beloved son of Dottie and Tony Anthony and step-father John Anderson, as well as a loving big brother to 3 sisters: Julie (Brian) Knudsvig, Dr. Jennifer (Jim) Palmer and Ann (Dr. Grant) Forrester.

He graduated from Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, Iowa, received his Master’s in Education from The Ohio State University and worked on his PhD at Vanderbilt.
