“Boo was like a second mother to my sister, brother and myself. It was always a big deal to get to go spend the night with her and Archie. ”

Alpha "Louise" Dent Pritt passed away peacefully on July 16, 2017 in Charlotte, NC at 96 years old, born on June 12, 1921 to the late William Schyler and Ethel Love Means. She lived in Charleston, W. Va. from birth until 1998.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Archie Dent. He was truly the love of her life and now she will be joining him.
She was from a large family and is survived by only one sibling, a sister, Mary Arlene Means Martin. She has one daughter Erma Dent Lane, a grandson, John Mark Lane, and a granddaughter, Erica Lane Guillermoni. Surviving also is one great granddaughter, Skylar Lane Eanes, and 2 great grandsons, Eli David Lane and Samuel John Lane, granddaughter in law Heather Gagnon Lane and grandson in law Gustavo Guillermoni.
Gone before her are most of her siblings, Willard Means, Gladys Means Oxley, Edith Means Glenn, Mathias (Mack) Means, Teddy Means Moore, Madeline Means Chittum, and Baby Areta Means; she was also preceded in death by her 2nd husband, George E. Pritt.
She was a great Mother and Wife. She lived her life around her family. Her husband Archie passed away far too soon in 1970. She was loved by her grandchildren and played a big part in their childhood. Her 3 precious great grandchildren also visited often and "helped" care for her. She will be greatly missed.
