July 8, 1963 - July 4, 2021

Margie Lynn Raney-Renfro left this earthly realm on July 4, 2021, after a short but intense battle with End-Stage Liver Disease. She was 57 years old. It would be wrong to say that Lynn lost her battle because she never stopped fighting. No matter how sick she was, she was always determined. When anyone else would have broken, Lynn stayed strong. Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly look like. There was no quit in Lynn. Just because she is no longer here, it doesn’t mean she lost her fight. Lynn is survived by her husband Gary Carroll Renfro and their daughter Shelby Lyn Raney. They invite you to join them for a memorial service at Aria Funeral Home on Wednesday August 18th at 11 am. All are welcome. Her ashes will be scattered at a future date.

Lynn was a childhood friend. We grew up in Florida. Her momBarabara and my MomJodi were like sisters at some point. Shared a residence together and the Barbara moved to Texas and they lost touch. I remember the times when were were children thatnwe would go camping
Together while our mothers were still married
To our fathers. Those memories are still fresh in my mind. El Taco Don on orange Blossom Trail in Orlando. Lyn was the silliest little girl with curlie hair. Her giggle was loud and infectious. Her mom, Barbara would plugmone eat eat and say, “Lynn” in her southern accent which sounded like Lee-un. Gosh, I miss those days but remember them like they were yesterday. Her love of animals was amazing as ismine but I remember when we were young, Lynn put a rubber band around her black poodles snout so he wouldn’t bark and her mom wouldn’t get annoyed. Unfortunately that was not a good thing To do. My brother and I are deeply saddened. We never knew she was sick. From her FB posts, you would think her life was like ours. Taking care of mom, each other and getting through each day the best we can in our new “normal”. That’s what makes her so special. She put others before herself. I know your loss is immense but I hope Gary, shelby and Barbara know, you were her world. RIP my little friend.

I don’t even know where to begin. This is a devastating loss for my family and I still can’t believe it. You have been a big part of my family for more than 30 years and a friend before that. You were much more than a sister in law to me. There’s so many things I will miss. Your laugh, your goofy sense of humor, and how you were always playing a joke on some unsuspecting victim. Sometimes I was your victim. But it was fun. I could never get you back as good as you got me. You had such a fun loving carefree sprit that I wish I could have. You were always fun to be around and always made me lol. You were a perfect fit in my family. To say I will miss you doesn’t begin to describe it. You were just crazy fun! I’ve cried an ocean since you had to move to Heaven and I’m sure I’ll cry a few more. Wish you could have stayed awhile longer. My brother will never get over losing you and your daughter will forever need her mom. It will never be the same. Our hearts are completely broken. I’m glad I spent those last few days with you and told you, I love you a million times. You always said it back. I have millions of memories with you. Thank you for loving my little brother and thank you for giving me my beautiful niece. I’m glad it was you that stole my brothers heart. Thanks for the memories and everything else. Enjoy Paradise and I know you’ll keep everyone there laughing. There’s so much more I could say but I better stop. You know what’s in my heart. I will miss you Lynn everyday for the rest of my life. I’ll see ya again someday. And be with my brother, he’s lost without you and be with your daughter, she’s lost and needs you. Comfort them. I love you so much girl. Always. See ya….

Louise Freeman says:

Dear Shelby and Gary, as much sorrow as we all have in our hearts right now, I know it can’t compare to you and Gary’s pain of losing your Mom and wife. I’m so thankful we all had these last few years of sharing her on Facebook.It’s so hard not seeing her post everyday. Think we all looked forward to them, because she always brightened our day with making us laugh. I love y’all. I want be able to attend the Memorial. But my thoughts and prayers will be with you.

Shelby Raney says:

I love you mom. This is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. But I find comfort in knowing that you are not in pain anymore. I miss you with every ounce of my being. Forever and always your baby I’ll be. ❤️

Tonya Brito says:

I’m so sorry for your loss Glen was a great friend of mine we live down the street from each other and grew up together she will truly be missed

Pat Bannister says:

Oh my darlin’ Till we meet again I find comfort in knowing the love will never end. I miss all that is “you”, especially your real life crazy stories about you and Gary. No one has ever made me laugh like you did. You’ll always be my precious Lynn. Our day will come, watch for me and Louise we’ll be wearin’ the pink feather wings. Love and prayers to Shelbster and Gary.

Kate Chapman says:

We bonded over our love of dogs, Candy Crush and Halloween. My best memory of you is when we started talking about Girl Scout 🍪cookies. I told you my absolute favorite was Samoas…so what did you do…bought me my own box the very next day. I will miss your wacky sense of humor and practical jokes you always played on the “new people”. I will miss you dearly Lynn…until we meet again. 😘 😘

Mindy Renfro says:

Lynn I don’t know what to say except I miss you so much. Nobody will ever know why you were taken from us so early. God needed you for something but we still needed you here with us. I will never forget the times we shared but I will regret not spending more time with you. I could not have found a better sister in law if I picked one myself because nobody could ever make my brother as happy as you did. You will be missed more than words can say. Your beautiful life may be over but you will never be forgotten. Gary & Shelbs my heart aches so much for both of you and I am so sorry you have lost your wife, your mom, your rock. Just know she is peaceful now with no more pain and she will be there with open arms when you see her again. RIP Lynn. Love you and miss you so much!
