June 27, 1928 - July 6, 2017
Flora Zelda Rains went home to be with her Lord on July 6th, 2017, at Precious Care Assisted Living in Concord, OH. She was born in Biltmore, NC to the late William J & Sallie (McAbee) Wright on June 27, 1928. She was a resident of Cleveland Ohio for the last 54 years. Flora was a woman of deep faith, who loved her Lord Jesus, and loved her family. She was an RN for 30 years, and even after retirement, never stopped looking after those around her. She was a wonderful loving, caring, giving person who enjoyed serving people, playing the piano for church, and had the gift of hospitality which she used well and often. She was an avid reader, loved to sew, play Uno with her grandchildren, and show her love for others by feeding them. She will be remembered not only for her kind and loving spirit but also for her homemade chicken soup, cinnamon rolls, chocolate chip cookies, fudge, and chocolate-covered cherries. Her greatest joys were her family and friends, and her deepest desire was for them to all come to know and love her Jesus, also. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ova C. Rains, and her sister Virginia (Ginger) Wright. She is survived by her daughters Nancy Haney, Melissa (David) Johnson , her son-in-law Nick Theodosion, and grandchildren Callie Theodosion, Sophia (Riza) Agushi, and Daniel Theodosion.
A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, July 15th, at 10:30 at Bible Community Church, 8600 Lakeshore Blvd, Mentor, Oh, with calling hours at 9:30 a.m.
