Loraine “Raine” Marchbanks

Mrs. Loraine (Raine) Marchbanks passed away on Sunday, Oct. 4, 2020, at her home in Dawsonville.

She is preceded by her husband, George Marchbanks and is survived by her children, Thomas McGarey, Glenn McGarey, Elizabeth McGarey and Patrick McGarey, as well as five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Marchbanks was well known for her Pen n’ Ink artwork of historic places in and around Forsyth County.

Mrs. Marchbanks was also a caring breeder of Shelties and made sure that only the most loving, caring families were lucky enough to be blessed with one.

Mrs. Marchbanks was also an active member in the Sheltie Rescue of Georgia helping save abused Shelties from deplorable conditions.

Her infectious smile and laugh made the world a better place and the people around her happier. Her love and dedication to her children was forever unwavering.  She will be forever loved as she waits to see them again one day with open, loving arms.

At the request of Mrs. Marchbanks, there will be no memorial service.

In lieu of flowers, Mrs. Marchbanks also requested that donations be made to the Sheltie Rescue of Ga in her name, in care of Kathy Greene, 155 Sonya Lane, Copper Hill, TN 37317. And please state your affiliation to the organization.
