It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Mother, Sister, Aunt, and friend Lana Jo Cantrell Todd. Lana passed, at age 66, early in the morning hours of April 8th after a long battle with COPD. Lana was born in Bogalusa, LA and grew up in Franklinton, LA where she graduated from Franklinton High School. She then attended L.S.U., P.R.C. and S.L.U. Lana decided to live in Baton Rouge and worked retail until being hired by the State of Louisiana Housing and Finance Agency where she worked for decades and was lauded with awards for her performance. She retired from the Louisiana School Retirement System. Lana was extremely artistic and loved creating something out of little to nothing. Her love and wit went into everything she crafted. She was most renowned for her cloths pin dolls. Many will remember her 20 plus years at the Broadmoor Arts and Crafts Festival. However, her favorite hobby was spending time with her granddaughter, Camryn. She will be sorely missed by all whose lives she touched.
