Elizabeth Rains

September 9, 1969 — August 28, 2020

Elizabeth Ann Rains (Beth Ann), age 50, born September 9, 1969, in Dearborn Michigan, a resident of Middlesboro, Kentucky passed away Friday, August 29, 2020, at the Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center after a long bout with pneumonia and eventually succumbing to organ failure.

Beth was preceded in death by her parents, Ben and Fern Rains and a child taken by miscarriage. She is survived by her three children, Allison Michelle Hawk, Allen Keith Hawk Jr., and Summer Lashae Hawk and grandchildren Lacey Michelle Hopson, Caden Allen Hawk, Jessy Clay Partin, and an additional grandchild that will be born in January. Also left to mourn her passing are two sisters - Abigail Rains, Frankfort, Kentucky and Mitzi (Phillip) Riggs, Tazewell, Tennessee, Uncle Ray and Aunt Mary Rains, Middlesboro, Kentucky, Uncle White Daniel Harrogate, Tennessee and a host of family and friends who will miss her sense of humor and her light.

Beth had a confession of faith at seven years old and was baptized as a member of Dunlap Baptist Church. She enjoyed reading, a good cold Pepsi, watching the news and keeping up with current politics. She was funny, giving and loved her friends and family to a fault.

Visitation and a memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 5th at 4:00 pm at Garmeada Baptist Church with Pastor Dewayne (Kojak) Graves officiating.
