M. Loraine McKeithan McLamb - Southport

Mrs. Loraine McLamb, born October 18, 1919 in Little River, SC, passed away April 24, 2013 at Lower Cape Fear Hospice and LifeCare Center in Bolivia, NC. Loraine was retired from the New York Times. She was preceded in death by her parents, Harry and Annie Evans Jenrette, nine siblings: Gertha Ward, Ora Dare Krushes, Dupree, Annie Caudill, Ellis, Henry, Howard, Thomas, Morris, and survived by her youngest sister, Betty Hart and her three children, step-sister Cynthia Bailey. The brothers and sisters and their respective children shared a tight knit relationship as evidenced by the many homecomings held over the years.

Loraine was married to the late Reverend Jennis McLamb for 16 years and survived by step-sons, Redell, Thomas, Richard, Wilbur and their respective spouses and children. They spent those happy years together in Little River and were long-standing members of Beulah Baptist Church where she was the oldest active member. She cherished her relationship with the McLamb family and the kindness and love they have given her over the years.

She was also preceded in death by her first husband of 49 years, Early Elton McKeithan, son Elton Jr., in-laws Hiram and Dorcas, and siblings, Annie Mae Watts, John Eldridge, Tony and Dorcas Ann Lewis, and their respective spouses and children. Loraine is survived by their son Kenneth Ray and his wife Carolyn, granddaughter Melissa Rae Haugen and her husband Jeff and their daughter Lauren Rae. Loraine is also survived by her granddaughter Tracy McKeithan Rabon and step-grandson Darryl Bennett.

Indeed, Loraine was dearly loved by both of her families and will be greatly missed.

Funeral services will be 2:00 pm Saturday, April 27, 2013 at Peacock-Newnam & White Funeral Home Chapel in Southport with Reverend Jesse Stevens officiating. Burial will follow in Northwood Cemetery.

The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service from 1:00 to 2:00 pm at the funeral home.

Loraine’s families would like to thank the staff of Carillon Assisted Living in Southport for the excellent care they provided, which made her last few years comfortable and enjoyable.
