Carollana Rose Bass, 13, passed away on Sunday, May 23, 2021 in Monroe County. Lana was born in Tupelo on December 30, 2007 to Edward Joseph Bass and Chari Elaine Harrington. Presently, she was a 6th grader at Mantachie School where she was just chosen for the junior high basketball and volleyball teams. She also played travel basketball. All the teachers and staff at school loved her and her huge smile and contagious and infectious personality could light up any room and turn someone’s bad day into a good one. And, oh, those dimples would just melt your heart. For the last few years, she absolutely loved living out on the club land where she could hunt with her family and ride the side by side; but more than anything, Lana loved her family and they, too, adored her. She looked forward to spending time with her cousins and had a special bond with her sister, Maddison who was her biggest cheerleader. Her grandfather and uncles doted on her, raising her as their own. Lana had a passion for animals.
Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. on Thursday, May 27, 2021 at the Mantachie High School gymnasium with Bro. Matthew Pharr officiating. Private family burial will follow at Conwill Cemetery. Cleveland-Moffett Funeral Home of Amory is honored to assist Lana’s family.
