Janet Rains McRorie passed away on Wednesday, October 7, 2020. Born Janet Leigh Rains in Dunn, NC, on August 1, 1949, she was the daughter of the late Jim & Evelyn Rains.

A graduate of Wingate College and East Carolina University, she began her teaching career at Forest Hills High School in Marshville, NC. In 1974 she married John M. McRorie and by May of 1977 she was a mother and a widow. Never letting that define her, she relished any opportunity to explore new places and to meet new people. She was an avid reader and bridge player. Ever fearless, she loved to be on the water even though she could not swim. What she loved most of all was her family.

Janet is survived by her son, Jamey McRorie, his wife Jillian Wilson McRorie, and three grandchildren, Samuel (8), Evelyn (6), and John (5) of Fort Payne, AL. She is also survived by her sister, Pam Rains, brother, Phil Rains and his wife Leigh Price Rains, all of Monroe, NC.

A private celebration of her life was held on Saturday, October 10th.

The family is so very grateful for the outpouring of love and support as they grieve their loving mother, sister, and grandmother.
