Canton – A dear and special lady, Mickey Lee Chastain Rathbone, age 86, entered into her eternal home Thursday, April 12, 2018.

Mrs. Rathbone enjoyed collecting antique glass and dolls, as well as buying and selling things at the flea market. She was a loving and caring lady who would cook for everybody (she wouldn’t let you turn down breakfast if you came by her home in the morning). She was a true country girl and was known to so many people as “Mom”.  Mrs. Rathbone attended Plains United Methodist Church.

Mrs. Rathbone was preceded in death by her husband, Wayne Rathbone; parents, Matthew Chastain and Gladys Pressley Cogburn; three of her sisters, and her four brothers.

Survivors include her two sons, Terry Wood and his wife, Gwen, of Cleveland, GA, and Eugene Rathbone and his wife, Marquetta, of Canton; sister, Catherine Clontz of Canton; four grandchildren, Mandy Wood of Canton, Kristen McCall of Commerce, GA, Casey Stroupe of Enka-Candler, and Matt Rathbone of Canton; and five great-grandchildren.

A funeral service will be held Saturday, April 14 at 2:00 PM at Crawford / Ray Funeral Home Chapel in Canton. The family will receive visitors from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM before the service. Burial will follow at Clark Chapel Cemetery in Canton.

A special thank you is extended to Eugene and Marquetta Rathbone for their undying love and exceptional care for their mother.

Crawford / Ray Funeral Home and Cremation Service is honored to be caring for the Rathbone family.
