Born in Wilkes-Barre on January 23, 1966, she was a daughter of Maynard Keatts and Ernestine (Flakes) Jones.

Lanee attended G.A.R. Memorial High School. From a young age, she had a passion for art that few people knew about. She also loved music and especially enjoyed singing along with her favorite artist, Chaka Khan.

Lanee was a very compassionate and loving person with a huge heart and she was always willing to help anyone in need. She had a personality that could light up a room as soon as she entered it. She had a laugh and smile so beautiful it gave you happiness. Lanee will be remembered for her love of animals and the unique ways she was able to train them at home and also her fried chicken and spaghetti.

She was preceded in death by grandmother, Loretta Bell; grandparents, Harold and Rebecca Murray; brother, Ron Quiller and sister, Leona Lavette Keatts.
