ROMERO, LANE "STALEY", Jeanette, 82 of Tampa passed away peacefully June 3, 2019 at home with her family by her side. She was born and raised in Tampa, married and became a homemaker. She was the mother of 7 children and was a full-time bookkeeper of our father's construction company. She also worked at Hav-A-Tampa, Hostess Donuts, Krispy Kreme donuts, Tampa Greyhound Track, etc. She really enjoyed spending time with all her family, cooking, fishing, crabbing, bowling, bunco, bingo, slot machines, knitting, TV (especially John Wayne Westerns), game shows, playing cards, dice, and board games of all kind. She traveled to Arizona and married her 2nd husband Hector Romero. She  moved back home to Florida with her husband to be closer to her family. She never lost sight of the Lord. She would listen to religious programs on TV and read her Bible. The Love of the Lord, family and children was unconditional. Our beautiful mother was very wise, very special and had a wonderful spirit about her. She just loved to make people laugh and make them happy, and of course she never acted her age. That's something we all loved about her and will miss dearly in so many ways. She is survived by her sons; Samuel, Ronald, Timothy; daughters, Sarita, Brenda, Donnette and Chanel; 14 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
