Official Obituary of


July 9, 1949 ~ February 27, 2024 (age 74) 74 Years Old


LORRAINE KAY LEICHNER (aka Grandma Rain and Aunt Rain), age 74, passed away on Tuesday, February 27, 2024. She was born July 9, 1949, in Columbus, Ohio, to Eldon Ray and Laura Jean Perry (Lansing). She worked for the State of Ohio where she retired from the Records Retention Center in 2015. She absolutely loved traveling and going to the casinos with her best friend, Liz. Her family and friends meant everything to her. Her family was her greatest accomplishments! She always opened her arms to everyone and didn’t mince words. She loved hanging out with friends and family at her property, which was what she wanted to do all the time.

Preceded in death by her parents Jean and Eldon, sisters Susan and Virginia, and brother Jack. Survived by daughters, Donnetta (Shawn), Carol (John); son, Kevin; grand kids, Courtney, Matthew (Amy), Jimmy (Kye), Joey (Alyssa), Jacob, Emma, Joey (April); great-grand kids, Penny, Oliver, Joshua, Caleb, Aria; sister, Christina Daniels (James); long-time best friend, Liz Morgan, and many loving nieces and nephews and other relatives.

She loved each and every one of us with every ounce of her being! Today we lost someone so special and she was, truly, the matriarch of the family.

This afternoon she took her last breath. She is at ease and at peace. She is pain free and I know she is embracing her parents again and partying with her brother and sister! No matter if you were friends or family and no matter what you knew her as, she was simply the best!

Rest easy Grandma Rain.
