fillise Posted April 15, 2008 Share Posted April 15, 2008 Raney Leigh Fleck Raney Leigh (McCullar) Fleck, 31, lost a courageous battle against lung cancer on Thursday, April 10, 2008. She was a wonderful mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend. Raney was born to Jerry and Wanda McCullar on July 4, 1976 in Mesa, Arizona. Raney lived in Mesa her whole life, and married her high school sweet heart, Chris on May 1, 1999. Raney earned her Bachelors Degree at Arizona State University in 1998, and was a Certified Public Accountant for seven years. Shortly after the birth of her oldest son, Raney was able to fulfill her desire of being a stay at home mother for her two boys. Raney was preceded in death by her grandfathers, Frederick Grafe and Lou Eaton, as well as her grandmother, Evelyn Grafe, and her uncles Gary Grafe and Jimmy Grafe. Raney is survived by her husband Chris Fleck; her two sons, Jaren Christopher and Conor Geordan; her parents, Jerry and Wanda McCullar; her sister Riley McCullar-Speltz; her grandmother Beatrice Eaton, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and in-laws. Raney's love of travel allowed her to create lasting memories for her family. She was an amazingly intelligent, witty, and fun person, and everyone that knew Raney appreciated her kind ways, her selflessness, and her thoughtfulness. Raney fought her disease courageously and her legacy will continue to live on through her sons, and in all of our memories. Throughout this battle, Raney never gave up hope, and she was such an inspiration to so many lives. She will be deeply missed, and her memory will live on in our hearts forever.
