Lauren C. Rankin, age 21, died in Lumberton, Texas, on Friday, June 1, 2012.
She was born on December 17, 1990 in Nederland, Texas. She worked at Lamar Port Arthur during the Summer, helping out with the Discovery program for children. She loved helping people and loved children. She was a fun loving girl with a heart of gold. Everyone who came across her heart of gold loved her and could never forget that smile. Lauren's smile was one in a million. Her loyalty to her friends was unbelievable.
Lauren and her siblings (Kaylen & Dylan) were as close as close could get. She loved them very much. She was daddy's girl by far but loved her mother more than words could explain. There was no one else like Lauren Christina Rankin and we want her to fly high in the sky.
Survivors include her mother, Terri Rankin; father and step-mother, Jeff and Dana Rankin; grandparents, Judy and Larry O'Neal, Gene Arnaud and Doris Sparks; sisters, Kaylen Rankin and Macy Martinez; brothers, Dylan Rankin and Chad McDonald; uncles, Paul Bienvenue, Timothy O'Neal, Tory Canfil, and Bob Hollis; aunts, Samantha Pitre, Tracy Ivy, Rita Canfil, and Glenda Durkey; nephew, Kayden McDonald; cousins, Josh Ivy, Ashlynn Ivy, Tanner Ivy, Sara Ivy, Hannah Ivy, Dustin Canfil, Chasen Canfil, Bo Jones, Tane Jones, and Noah Jones.
