Alane Rae (Chapman) LaFountain, of New London, WI, passed away unexpectedly, Wednesday, January 6, 2010. She was born June 22, 1962 in Plainwell, Michigan to Lloyd 'Bud' and Ruth (McCafferty) Chapman. Alane graduated from Otsego High School (Michigan) in 1980. On November 7, 1992 in the township of Trowbridge in Michigan she married Dell LaFountain and they began their life journey. While enjoying life in Wisconsin she was employed as a cook at Emmanuel Lutheran School for 14 years. She leaves her husband of 17 years, Dell LaFountain of New London, WI; son, Zane (Elisha) Chapman of Little Chute, WI; daughter, Renee LaFountain of New London, WI; son, Heath LaFountain of New London, WI; step-son, Richard (Kelly) LaFountain of Michigan; four grandchildren, Ariana Chapman and Casey, Kendra and Kyler LaFountain; her mother, Ruth Chapman of Otsego; a brother, Allen (Karrie Ann) Chapman of Michigan; a sister, Carie (Jerry) Rife of Michigan; nieces and nephews, Lloyd, Jason and Ruth Chapman and Brittany, Breanna and Jimi Chapman. She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Allen and Leona McCafferty, and paternal grandparents, Lloyd and Sarah Chapman, and by her father, Bud Chapman in 1986. Alane was a mother before anything else. She derived much enjoyment from spending time with her cherished loved ones. Activities she enjoyed with her family included hunting, fishing, going to races, coaching her children's sports teams and having cookouts in the backyard. She lived fearlessly and inspired all she encountered. She will be greatly missed in the roles she filled in the family as a wife, daughter, mother, grandmother, granddaughter, aunt, sister, niece and friend. You are forever in our hearts and will never be forgotten. Our love for you lasts an eternity. Alane's family will receive friends from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 PM Monday at the
Winkel Funeral Home

where services will be held
at 11:00 AM Tuesday, with
her uncle, Ted Ransbottom, officiating. Burial will follow
at Mountain Home Cemetery, Otsego. Contributions in memory of Alane may be made to a college fund for her grandchildren (please make checks payable to Ruth Chapman).
