Jane Horton Rayburn (87) of Guntown, MS joined her Lord and Savior on November 23, 2022 at the Meadows in Fulton after a long illness.
While residing in Guntown, she was affectionately known as "Mamaw Jane" to local children and the community. She worked as a bookkeeper most of her life and attended some college courses. Her hobbies included playing the piano, singing, flower gardening and reading. A delight was teaching the piano to many children of the community and she did so at her home.
As an avid member of Victory Baptist Church (with prior membership at Guntown Baptist Church), she enthusiastically played the piano, organ and taught Sunday School lessons. A fine example of serving wherever help was needed.
