Co TN aged 88. Obituary reads "Imogean Covington Racely, wife of Kermit Lamar Racely for 61 years and U.S. Postal Service retiree

died early Wednesday, November 24, at the family home in Memphis. She had been in frail health for the past two years but continued most

of her activities until her recent cancer diagnosis.

 

Mrs. Racely was born August, 25, 1922 in Marks, MS, on the Covington Place, to Josa Lee (Mr. J.L.) Covington and Mary AnnieDee

Hughes Covington. Her death was the last of her nine siblings, and was preceded by: Leo D'lo and Stella Jane Covington, who died in early

childhood; Claric Clayton Covington, Gladys Audrey Covington, Celia Lametta Covington Walker, Amzie Lee Covington, Annie Lois

Covington Hammond, Leah Covington Schoolar, and most recently, her closest brother, Dr. Leslie Hughes Covington. Mrs. Racely attended

the University of Tennessee and was a graduate of Miller-Hawkins Business College.

 

She began her career in civilian life in Memphis and in government services in the Office of Price Stabilization, the U.S. Army 2nd

Transportation Zone, and finally the U.S. Postal Service. At the USPS, her first jobs were as executive secretary and she later advanced to

management. She served as Officer in Charge/OIC (interim postmaster) at Warner Robins, GA., and retired in 1988 as Senior Address

Information Systems Specialist.

 

Her husband was her earliest and tireless supporter in an era that birthed 2-career families and equality for women. Mrs. Racely tirelessly

researched her family genealogy and hosted a multi-generational Covington Family Reunion in Memphis in 1999, on the 100th Anniversary

of her parents' marriage.

 

A charming Delta lady, she had many varied interests: in retirement, her favorite was Gatlinburg and the Smokies-hiking, nature sounds of

brooks and streams, and dulcimers. She was a sports fan, who favored men's and women's fast-pitch softball and baseball. Until declining

health forced her to the bank, she was an avid and successful bass and crappie fisherman in Mississippi and Arkansas waters.

 

Despite her family and business commitments, her church carried her through all, and the years only increased her commitment and faith.

She was a devoted 45-plus year member of Whitehaven Baptist Church and was a member of the Women's Missionary Union (now WOM)

and during her working years was a member of the Business Women's Circle. At the time of her death, she was a Church Librarian for over

20 years in the Media Center. Each Christmas for over 14 years, she and her husband traveled to visit their daughter and son-in-law in New

Mexico and later in Florida, and often traveled to where their daughter was working on assignments in the USA and Canada.

 

Mrs. Racely is survived by her husband and their only child, Ruth Ann Racely (widow of John H. Weed,) close and cherished nephews Dr.

Kenneth Hughes Covington, Leslie Jones Covington, Josie Lee Covington, and Leslie Hughes Covington; Audrey Lee Hammond Butler,

Abner Meek Hammond, Jr. and other cherished nieces and nephews and their families. She also leaves her step-grandchildren Suzanne

Weed Martin, Janet Weed Beaver and John Richard Weed, and their families. (Last updated: 14/04/2023 13:05:00)

To all who knew her, Jane was an amazing woman. She endured tremendous loss and hardships during her 85 years on earth; through

them all she exhibited great faith, unmatched strength, and grace upon grace. She used her life experiences, good and bad, to share

undeniable wisdom with all who passed her way.

beyond her own children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren to many friends both young and old. She was a mom and Mooks to many.

She was indeed amazing in so many ways.

 

Jane left home in Midnight, Mississippi when she was 16 years old to begin Nursing School in Vicksburg, Mississippi. After two years, she

continued her training in New Orleans at Mercy Hospital at the young age of 18. Despite the sisters' best efforts, Jane experienced all New

Orleans had to offer. Upon graduation, she began a nursing career that expanded 60 plus years and touched many lives. Her intellect,

wisdom, personality, and compassion took her to the top of her profession. Her family benefited greatly from her expert "medical" advice

over the years.

 

In 1963, Jane and her husband James moved their family to Mt. Olive. She raised her family and resided there until 1983 when her husband

passed away at the young age of 55. Jane was 46 at the time. Later that year, she moved to Jackson to continue her nursing career where

she provided expertise in the long-term care arena. During her own health challenges, she was never able to take her nursing hat off and put

her patient hat on. The nursing profession was a true blessing to Jane as she developed life-long friendships which she made sure to

nurture right up until her death.

 

Jane was preceded in death by her mother and father, Martha Jo and Claric Covington, husband, James C. Kelly, Jr., daughter, Dee Kelly

Lee, grandson, Sam Clayton Kelly (FG #79648297), sister Wanda Faye Taylor and brother, Clayton "Bubba" Covington.

 

She is survived by her children Cliff Kelly (Jane) of Mt. Olive, Pat Eubanks of Magee, and Sam Kelly (Kim) of Madison. She is also survived

by 12 grandchildren, Zach Lee (Monica), Adam Lee (Megan), Nick Lee (Katie), Lara Robinson (Luke), Chrissy Kelly (Anna), Drew Kelly

(Jacqueline), Joey Johnson, Daniel Eubanks, Kelly Eubanks (Brooke), Katie Eubanks, Maggie Kate Bobo (Lane) and Anna Claire Wallace

(Tanner) and 22 great-grandchildren, Luke Harris, James Henry, Lucy and Ollie Robinson; Slade and Maeme Lee; Kaylee and Ryleigh

Brown; Anna Lee and Sam Bobo; Ida, James, Owen and Benson Kelly; Campbell and Andee Lee; Evan Eubanks; Evelyn Dee Lee, Ava

Lee Joiner, Mary Tate, Mercer and Miller Williamson." (Last updated: 14/04/2023 09:36:06)
