2012 Aide To The Grand Marshal – Sioban Lane Rack

Sioban is the third child to Daniel and (the late) Sally Lane.  Her dad is from County Cork Ireland and her mom was from County Tyrone, Ireland.  She was raised to enjoy Irish step dancing, music, laughter and the sounds of the bagpipes.  Sioban was born in Roslyn, NY and raised in Sea Cliff with her three siblings, Dennis, Patricia and Daniel Joseph, where she attended St. Boniface Martyr School, North Shore High School and ITT Business School.  She has been an employee of SCO Family of Services for Thirty-three years.

In all her roles over the last 33 years, one thing has remained constant; year after year Sioban has brought happiness to thousands of children across the agency.  With corporate contacts, volunteers and donors she has provided Christmas for hundreds of children and adolescents every year, arranged trips and special outings, and recently, working with the Garden of Dreams foundation, she has even enabled some of our children to perform at Radio City Music Hall.

In addition to all of this Sioban has worked with volunteers, putting together highly successful events that have raised funds to support programs across the agency.  Her success in this area is a direct result of the passion she has for the children and families she services.

She has been a member of the LAOH since 2006 serving as Vice President and President.  She has been involved with the St. Patrick’s Day dance, Garage Sales and all LAOH fund raising activities.  She is also a member of the St. Boniface Martyr Ministries.

Sioban is married to the love of her life Jim Rack and they are enjoying raising their son – James Rack who is 16 years old and a junior at North Shore High School.
