Alane Strong

Our team is in honor of our beautiful Alane who fought brain cancer with as much bravery and strength as she approached her life.  We love and miss her every day.  Alane was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, Lolli (grandmom), aunt and friend.  She was an inspiration to all her knew her.  She was only 58 years old when she passed on October 24, 2021.  Alane was and is a beacon of strength, love, fun, and goodness.  Alane was always up for an adventure, was creative, altruistic, inspirational, and passionate about the people in her life and everything she did.  She was a natural leader and a kind soul. 

Alane was raised in Southampton and Huntingdon Valley, PA by her parents, Thomas Astley Cooper and June Danenberger Cooper and siblings, Aleta (Bossert), Anita (Barbato), Allison (Cardona), Anne (Fleming) and Thomas.  She graduated from Lower Moreland HS, where she met her best friend and husband Steve Inacker.  She and Steve had two children Samantha and Stephen.  They moved from Stanhope, NJ to Ada, MI to Rochester Hills, MI to Clarence, NY to Lake Forest, IL, and finally beautiful Marco Island, FL.  Samantha married Doug Mackenzie and Alane was blessed and totally in love with being Lolli to her granddaughters Eliza and Adeline.  Her son Stephen married Annie (Cantara) and they have her first grandson, Stephen Augustine. 

We walk together to join to fight against brain cancer and to remember and honor Alane Janice Cooper Inacker.  Please join us in our efforts!
