In memory of
Lana Carol Feagin Stripling
STRIPLING, Lana Carol Feagin Lana Carol Feagin Stripling was born on June 17, 1941 in Houston, Texas where she spent her early life. She gently eased into eternity on December 12, 2020. She attended Lamar High School where she made many lifetime friends. Lana attended Baylor University receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Education. While attending Baylor, she was a member of Chi Omega. In 1962 she married Robert "Bob" Stripling and after graduation they moved to Dallas, where Bob practiced law for 44 years. During most of her life Lana concentrated on educating and counseling young people who had learning disabilities. She received a Masters Degree of Arts from SMU in 1967. She worked for June Shelton School for about 20 years. While there she developed a handwriting program and published 5 books on Developmental Motor and Handwriting Programs that fit the needs of her students. She received recognition for her work, such as, serving as president of Dallas Metro Counseling Association, member of the Board of Dallas Branch of the Dyslexia Association, Chairman of the Academic Language Therapist Association and advisory board member for several private schools. Lana participated in many seminars and teacher training workshops where she taught her handwriting and motor skill methods to other teachers. On December 6, 1991 Lana received her license from the state Of Texas as a Licensed Professional Counselor and opened a private counseling office. Following the theme of her life, most of the best days were those during which she learned that former student or client reached success in life. She kept a file of such good news. She continued to provide counseling services for 20 years before retiring. After retirement she and Bob spent several months each year at the Stripling Ranch near Corpus Christi watching the wildlife, especially deer, quail, and turkey. But her favorite pastime was walking or sharing lunch with her many friends. Lana was of strong character and religious belief. Although not very tall of stature she faced up to two thieves who grabbed her purse. She quickly grabbed it back and admonished the potential thieves. They wisely fled. Lana was a longtime member of the Baptist Church. She made many new friends at Park Cities Baptist Church. Lana was predeceased by her parents, Frank and Hanna Feagin. Survived by her husband of 58 years, Bob Stripling, daughter, Sheryl Stripling and son, William Stripling. A memorial service will be held when it is safe to do so.
