LeRae was born August 15, 1964 in Lee County, and she died August 22, 2020 at her home in Enterprise, AL. LeRae graduated from Macon Academy in 1982. She was a cheerleader and loved her classmates, and they loved her to this day.  She attended Southern Union Wadley Campus and graduated from Troy University with a BS in Psychology and completed all but her comps towards a Masters Degree.  LeRae was a member of Mt. Olive Baptist Church. As a child LeRae was in Lee County 4-H and was crowned Miss Lee County Agriculture in high school. She loved to ride horses and show horses and show live stock through 4-H. She was proud to be a cowgirl.

She is survived by her husband, Ricky Rainer; step children, Doug ( Stephanie) Rainer, Lori Beth (Jamie) Whaley, Will (Jalon) Rainer, Leanne (Trent) Matherly and 5 grandchildren. She was also survived by her niece, Hayden Whatley; nephews, Connor, Callen, and Carson Brown; brother, Allen Woodall; aunts, cousins and too many friends to name or count. She loved her pets and considered them her children.

LeRae was preceded in death by her parents, Annice and Andrew (Leary ) Whatley; and her brother, Cal Whatley.

She will be missed and forever in our hearts. She had such a good heart and was so much fun and made everyone laugh and feel good about themselves.
