Lann
Lann Kolina Johnson Considine George passed away from cancer at Torrance Memorial Medical Center on March 22nd at the young age of 49. Lann was a life-long resident of Vermont and moved to Lawndale, California with her new husband in August 2003. She is survived by her husband Bill George, her mother and step father, Sally and Bill Young, her daughters Heidi and Brynna Considine, her new husband’s daughter Marjorie George, son David George and grandson William George, her grandmother Natalie Elliott, three brothers Arne, Eric and Karl Johnson and their families, a sister Laurie Aviles and her family, two step sisters, Carol Stevens and Theresa James and their families, step brother Scott Young, beloved aunts, uncles, and cousins, and her ex-husband Joseph Considine and his family. Lann was a remarkable mother and wife, while being highly successful as an Account Manager at Logic/Printcafe/EFI. She also volunteered at David’s House which is a home for families whose children are stricken with cancer. Lann loved to run, cross country ski and bike, but her greatest joy came from being the mother of her daughters Heidi and Brynna. Everyone who met Lann was struck by her kindness and sweetness. She gave much more than she received. Her smile was the first thing you would see as it was always there and was there for everyone. The only possible reason God could have wanted her at such a young age, was because he needed someone to make Heaven even a brighter and a better place to be. Lann will be taken back home to Vermont. There will be a memorial service to celebrate her life on Saturday April 3rd at 1:00 pm at the North Congregational Church in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. Lann, your loved ones left behind love you and miss you and will someday see you in Heaven.

  1. Dearest Lann, I am so lucky that you agreed to be my wife. While our married life together wasn\’t how we planned it to be, every one of our days was filled with love. I cannot ever fully express how amazed I was with your strength and will. Regardless, of how painful the treatment, or how sick it made you, you never once complained and refused to go on. You handled your illness and your final moments with a remarkable inner resolve and calm that will live in my memory forever. Lann you will be in my heart and my soul forever. You touched me with your kindness and the intensity of your love that left me breathless. I am so lucky that you came into my life and agreed to marry me. Thank you a million times over for being my wife and the love of my life. I can\’t wait to see you again in Heaven. Please get that garden started so that when I finally arrive, you can show me the beauty you have created. But that beauty will be hard pressed to match the beauty in your heart, and the beauty of your smile. I love you very much Lann and I will always be in love with you. I look forward to spending eternity with you, hand in hand, as we were here on earth each and every day. Your Bill forever.

  3. To the family Lann left behind, we all lost a dear friend but the world is much much better for her memory.

  4. I worked with Lann for a number of years at Logic/Printcafe. She was always kind and always tried to see the best in everyone and everything. I enjoyed working with her and knowing her. I will miss her.

  5. Lann, We all miss you, especially the care, compassion and energy you added to all our lives. Our memory of you will help keep this alive.

  6. Bill, My heart goes out to you now and in the past for what you have given to Lann. You made her so happy and took such good care of her. Because of you and your love for her, all of us who loved her to, are so thankful that she had you and for the life you gave to her before she left us. Lann was always in my heart and always will be. You also have a place in my heart forever along with Lann\’s daughters and her family. I have kept the pictures you have sent to us in e-mails. These will be treasured for a very long time. Take Care Bill. Love Annette

  7. Dear Bill: We are so very grateful to have met such a beautiful person who entered your life…and ours. Sin Ja and I will never ever forget the times together, as short as they were, whether it was on the golf course at Griffith Park, at our wedding being so affectionate, at cirque du soleil and Lann\’s precious expressions on her face, and certainly on the big boat in portland maine at your extravagant wedding night. God blessed Lann, and god has blessed the family and friends she leaves behind by having met her. Our love… Sin Ja and Ira

  8. Hello Bill and family: Our sincerest condolences to you and your family. Our thoughts are with you. Mark and Christiane

  9. That wonderful smile of hers will always be in our hearts and in our memories. We thank God for the time you were in our life, and it made our lives so much brighter and happier. You will be missed always and a day.

  10. Dear Bill and Family, My heartfelt sympathies go out to you. Lann helped make my years at Printcafe fun. She made me laugh every time I visited the Lebanon office and was a pleasure to be around. I remember how excited you were to share with us your marriage proposal when we were travelling in Vancouver together, and Lann\’s complete joy when I saw her later that month in NH. My thoughts are with you. All my love, Tim

  11. Although, I didn\’t know her, but to see such a young and loving wife and mother, leave this earth under any circumstance, is always sad and touching. However, God is never wrong, he do things for a perfect reason. Mr. George, I CAN\’T IMAGINE WHAT YOU\’RE GOING THROUGH AND THE PAIN BEHIND IT. Just keep your head up and be grateful that your wife is in a worry-free and happy place now. Take care and My God bless you and your family. Iris Peppers NE Sales Admin.

  12. Bill, Brynna, Heidi, Sally, Joe and other members of Lann\’s family… I am so honored that Lann chose me to be her friend and so happy that I got to spend time with her. She was a remarkable person, a great friend to me, and I miss her terribly. Thank you all for taking such good care of her. You are in the prayers of many. Love, Monique

  13. I am so sorry to hear that Lann lost the battle she fought so hard to win. Lann and I became good friends back in the 70\’s. I found her to be the most trusting, trustworthy, giving and geniune person I had ever met. I regret that we didn\’t keep in touch. My prayers are with her family and friends she leaves behind. She is with her dad and other family members gone before her that can comfort her through this transition.

  14. My Mother, my Hero, and the most beautiful, honerable person in the universe. I miss her with all of my heart and soal.

  15. Sally and Family, My thoughts are with you all at this time. I did not have the honor of meeting Lana but she sounds like an extraordinary person. I will be sending you warm thoughts each day and will say a prayer for you all. I know how strong your faith is and am sure that will help you go forward each day. If I can do anything at all please do not hesitate to ask.

  16. Bill, My condolences on your loss. Your wife sounded like a very special person who will be missed by many. Your loss struck a chord with me because the day your wife left us was the 3 year anniversary to the day that I lost my Mom suddenly to a heart attack. She and my dad were married 48 years, we all still miss her dearly and feel for you. I also lost my sister to brain cancer on January 7th of this year after a long battle. She was 49 years old, same as your wife. A long illness and she too is finally at rest. She never complained, battled to the end and was at peace we believe at the end. I just want you to know you are not alone and things will get better. Myles Coates

  17. Bill: I never had the pleasure of meeting Lann, but am certain that with you as a husband she was an even more wonderful person while here on Earth. God bless you all . . .

  18. Dear Bill and Lann, I can still remember the shining glow of love that radiated from both of you whenever we ran into each other at industry events. Your happiness was constantly overflowing and enriching everyone who came within your circle. I believe that your two souls are so interconnected they still have the ability to fly above the physical boundaries of space and time. Thank you both for sharing your special love with all of us who came to know you. Love, Cathy

  19. Our memories of Lann will be that of a bright, fun-loving person always wearing a beautiful smile. We all need to also remember that Lann was a beloved daughter of the late Robert D. Johnson who passed away in October 1985. We have been close in heart with Lann throughout her life and will remember all the visits, the trips either to or from Logan Airport, our spending at least a half day in spring 2001 at The Limited in Saugus when Heidi chose her senior prom dress. What fun! More recently we will recall our visit with Lann in October 2002, all our wonderful phone conversations, the beautiful wedding last August and the closeness we have felt to Lann these past several months, although many miles away, because Bill so graciously kept us informed, through e-mail messages and pictures, how Lann was doing medically, physically and emotionally. Our sympathy goes out to all, but especially to Lann\’s beloved daughters, Heidi and Brynna. Always hold your memories close to your hearts. In love and sympathy, Uncle Dick and Auntie Barbara

  20. So sorry to hear about Lann\’s passing. I worked with her for 3 years, and her smile, warmth, friendship, and enthusiasm were contagious. She was a great co-worker and will be truly missed. My sincerest condolences to you Bill, and all her family members

  21. Bill and family, I too will always remember Lann\’s smile. Especially the night she got carded going into Pleasure Island in Orlando just a few short years ago! I\’m sad to hear that smile is no longer with you. Wendy

  22. Dearest Lann: You are our dear special daughter. Your love shines like the morning sun and the brightest star. Your beautiful smile and love will be with us always. We know you are in God\’s arms secure and adding so much joy to heaven. Our hearts and love are with you for eternity. Your loving Mom and Dad

  23. Dearest Lann, You have been gone now for more then 14 months. How did so much time go by? You have now been gone more then twice the time we were married. It seems so unfair. But I am glad that you are no longer in pain. Thank you for doing your best under terrible pain and discomfort to stay here on earth with your loved ones. You put up an incredible fight. So many things have changed since you left. Life will never be the same, but it is continuing on. Fortunately, our love is so strong that you remain in my life and always will. I have learned it is true, that love never dies. Thank you for the wonderful memories and for the new ones you continue to create. I love you Lann with all my heart and I always will. Your husband for eternity. Bill

  24. Darling Lann, You’ve now be gone for five years. Your loss was devastating to me. Somehow I survived my grief and my life continues on. I will always miss you. I will always love you. I still look forward to the day we are together again. I’m currently writing a book about our life together. I hope it raises additional money for the Memorial Fund created in your name. Writing about us has been painful but wonderful as I recalled our times together. Thank you again Lann for loving me. Thank you for showing me what real courage is. Thank you for being in my life and for proving to me that you remain in my life. I love you Lann and I wish you much joy and everlasting happiness. Bill
