Rosalind Lana Hekkala died July 8, 2007, at the age of 66.

She was born Aug. 11, 1940.

Lana loved life. She lived every minute; her passions were travel, art, music, movies, books and crossword puzzles. Always one to lend a hand to anyone in need, she volunteered for causes she believed in and protested what she saw as injustices. Lana will be greatly missed by her friends and family.

She didn’t much care for cut flowers, so please donate to a charity of your choice, or volunteer for something you believe in, in her memory.

We will celebrate her life and spirit on her birthday at 4 p.m. on Aug. 11, 2007, under the peach tree at 1130 Jones St., Reno, Nev.
