A. Ilene Raycraft Of Lansing
The power of the mind is an amazing thing. For the past two years A. Ilene Raycraft has been saying her goal was to live to ninety years old. Ilene, born June 26, 1924 turned ninety and passed away July 15, 2014. She was a beautiful feisty woman who told everyone what she thought. She loved chocolate, a daily cocktail, and ate cookies for breakfast! Ilene was preceded in death by her husband of 64 years Ray, daughter, Susan, grandson Nicholas Earl, and daughter-in-law Mary Sue Raycraft. Ilene is survived by her children, Greg and Kimberly Raycraft, and Kelly (Al) Fifield, 6 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great grandson.
